Village Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Shellharbour

Sports Physiotherapy

Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour offers sports physiotherapy. We understand how important it is for you to return to the game ASAP. Our staff not only treat your injury but will educate you in how to prevent recurrence.

Through a whole body assessment we aim to get to the true cause of your pain/injury. In finding the true cause in both chronic and acute injuries we can ensure a faster and more successful return to play.

Sports physiotherapy requires us to have a detailed understanding not only about your sport but also the requirements of your body. We look to you in helping us understand what it is you need your body to do. No sport is too challenging for us to work with.

In a session, we will teach you:

  • how to minimise further damage to an acute injury thus speeding up healing
  • how to manage and maintain your tissues to prevent further injury
  • how to optimise your movements thus giving you speed, agility, power and strength.

Common sporting injuries managed at Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour include but are not limited to:

  • Acute ankle sprains
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • ACJ injuries
  • Knee ligament injury
  • Patella dislocations
  • Muscle tears
