Sports & Powerlifting
Playing sports or keeping fit is an important part of Australian society. We enjoy being in the team community and looking our best. What we don’t enjoy is being injured or in pain and this can often stop us from participating in what we love to do.
At Inspired Physiotherapy we aim to assess and treat your sports injuries and get you back on the field as soon as possible. We keep in mind your goals, whether it be getting back into the fitness scene after a few years off or making sure you can play the grand final and not let your team down. We will assess your pain or injury, treat it with the appropriate methods and develop a plan that will get you back to your peak performance.
Our clinic boasts state of the art gym equipment so our physiotherapists can tailor a rehab program that can be used both at the clinic, at home and at commercial gyms.
Our team understand the demands we put on our body to compete and participate in elite level sports but also understand that guidance is required when returning to sport after a period of time off.
