Sports Injuries

We know that when you're injured playing sport, you want to get back on the field as soon as possible. To do this, it's vital that you receive the best advice and top quality sports injury management as soon as possible.

Albany Creek Physiotherapy are experts in sports injury management. We work with athletes on the recovery and prevention of sports injuries, to ensure you can compete at the highest level, in peak condition.

With all injuries, early attention will allow early injury diagnosis and for a treatment plan to be developed quickly, allowing you to get back to the sport you love as soon as possible.

Depending on the seriousness of the injury sustained, you may need x-rays or scans. Our team will work with you and be able to direct you on the best way to organize these if required.

Our team provide a staged sports injury recovery process to ensure you can be back out playing the sport you love as soon as possible.

Stage 1, Acute phase:

After any sporting injury, the tissue is painful, tender, swollen, red, weak & perhaps unstable. For example, with a bad ankle sprain you may not be able to take all your weight on the joint. In this phase, we consider taping, braces or even a walking boot to reduce symptoms and set up the best environment for tissue healing.

Once your body has had time to recover from your sporting injury we work with you to build up to the preinjury level of fitness required to play. A return to sport should only occur once full function has been restored, this ensures your body is ready to resist sports injuries reoccurring.
