Leading Sports Physiotherapy Experts
With more than 20 years in the industry and extensive AFL and footy experience, the team at Chelsea Longbeach Physiotherapy are here to help!
One of our specialities is helping active people prevent and recover from sports injuries, whether you are a weekend warrior, occasional player or a seasoned professional. We take pride in our ability to diagnose your injuries quickly and efficiently, not only identifying the actual source of the injury but also helping to prevent its recurrence in the future.
Some of the common injuries we treat at our Longbeach clinic include:
Sprains - ankles, wrists and knees
Inflammatory conditions – tendonitis and bursitis
Strains - hamstrings, calves and rotator cuff
Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow
We also help people with overtraining injuries, as well as teaching you a range of stretching, strengthening, endurance and stability skills. If you want to run faster, jump higher or play better, then we can help you achieve your goals.
Pre and post-surgical rehabilitation
We offer a pre-surgery strengthening program that helps to optimise your post-surgery rehabilitation and your return to normal daily activities as quickly as possible. Post-surgery, we liaise with your surgeon to tailor a rehabilitation program that perfectly suits your requirements for a safe and fast recovery.
Some of the surgeries that benefit from pre and post-surgical rehabilitation include:
Joint replacements – knee, hip, ankle and shoulder
Ligament and tendon reconstructions – rotator cuff and ACL
Achilles tendon repairs
Post-surgery treatments focus on re-establishing early movement of the affected joint, as well as muscle strengthening. We also concentrate on your balance and gait (for lower limb surgeries) and the return of function. Most athletes want to return to their sporting activities as quickly as possible and we will help you achieve this goal whilst prioritising your safety and comfort.
