Our Sports Physio near Dandenong North can help you achieve your personal best

Sports physiotherapy is a unique branch or sub-specialty of physiotherapy that focuses on the prevention, care, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries sustained in sport. Sports physiotherapists are highly educated and trained to assess, treat and rehabilitate injured athletes with an emphasis on sport specific skills.

The main difference between sports physiotherapy and other branches of physiotherapy is the emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of injuries related to sporting activities. These injuries could be minor or major, or might just be persistent and come in the way of your regular athletic activity.

Our physiotherapists have the expertise and experience to work with all types of sporting injuries, so that you can go back and perform on the field. We combine rehabilitation and recovery with a sustainable training plan, which not only helps you heal faster, but also makes you stronger for future injury prevention. We have helped many athletes get back to optimum performance, and in some cases, even outperform their own personal bests. We are confident that we could replicate this with all our clients.

At Hills Physiotherapy, we are passionate about helping our clients achieve optimal movement and function not only in the sporting arena, but in day to day activities as well. We believe in spending time to understand the injury in detail and explore all possible causes, before prescribing a treatment plan.
