Accent Physio has a keen interest in sports injuries. We employ physiotherapists with post graduate qualifications in sports physiotherapy and extensive experience in sport injury management having worked closely with many athletes and sporting teams from a variety of sports including football, cricket, rugby, soccer, hockey, basketball, floorball, volleyball, athletics, triathlon, cycling, swimming, ballet and dance throughout Perth.
Sports physiotherapy is a specific field of physiotherapy and our physios are fully equipped with the latest equipment and technology, including running and gait analysis technology, spinal scanning technology, cycling analysis and bike fitting and Pilates and exercise equipment. Principal Physiotherapist Matthew Montgomery believes that “…by having the latest computerised scanning equipment and technology our physios are able to accurately diagnose and effectively manage a broad range of sports injuries. We strive for excellent results and this certainly gives us the edge – especially with elite athletes looking to enhance their performance in every way possible.”
Treatment of sports injuries are best managed by a physiotherapist who is either a sports physio or a physiotherapist with a keen interest in sports injuries, usually with a background in sports injury and management.
A Sports injury clinic encumbers the disciplines of sports medicine, sports physiotherapy, sports massage and sports rehabilitation to treat the sporting injury holistically. We are proud to offer these services and consistently achieve tremendous outcomes by utilising such a multi-disciplinary approach.
If you should happen to injure yourself on the sporting field, be sure to take immediate action. Follow the RICE principles (Rest; Ice; Compression; Elevation) immediately post injury to minimize swelling and contact us as soon as possible for appropriate care. It is our aim to assess you as soon as practical following a sport injury which is why we offer same day appointments Monday to Saturday so you can get the care you need when you need it … not days or weeks later!
An accurate assessment and diagnosis will determine the most appropriate course of treatment, and this is specifically tailored to the individual to achieve the best recovery possible so that you can get back to your chosen sport – fast!
