Injury Assessment and Diagnosis


You should see a physiotherapist if:

  • you cannot continue normal sporting, work or daily activities; or
  • your injury is recurrent; or
  • you are concerned about recovery from your injury.

Your physiotherapist will:

  • assess your injury or problem and provide a provisional diagnosis, with expected time frames for recovery;
  • refer you to the appropriate person if your injury needs further investigation or management.


Injury Management and Rehabilitation


Your physiotherapist will:

  • provide an individual management and exercise rehabilitation programme specific to you, your sport and activities;


Injury Prevention


Your physiotherapist can:

  • perform a sport-specific Screening Assessment of muscle strength, flexibility, stability and movement patterns to identify potential causes of injury and to provide a preventative rehabilitation programme;
  • identify previous injuries that have not been sufficiently rehabilitated and may recur;
  • teach you how to avoid more injuries;
  • show you how to stretch and warm up.


Enhancing Sporting Performance


Don’t wait for an injury. Your physiotherapist can give you a Screening Assessment, then prescribe an individualised programme to improve movement efficiency, enhance sporting performance, and reduce the risk of injury.

  • Physiotherapists can advise you how to set up your workstation correctly
  • Physiotherapists can train you to work safely, including the use of pause, stretch breaks and rotating tasks
  • Physiotherapists can teach you correct manual handling techniques
