Physiotherapy for Sporting Injuries

Preventing sporting injuries is increasingly important for individuals and teams alike. At Kieser, we can specifically test and compare the strength of the muscles that are important in your sport – then design an exercise program to address any weaknesses.

Treating sporting injuries requires five important elements:

Early intervention
Thorough assessment and diagnosis
Contemporary physiotherapy

Massage, mobilisation, dry needling and more

Rehabilitation and strengthening exercise
Load monitoring and graduated return to sport
Sports Physiotherapy
How we treat and prevent sports injuries

At Kieser, our team of Physiotherapists are prepared to treat all types of sporting injuries. Kieser builds up muscles, tendons, tendon attachments, bones, ligaments and cartilage and protects you from overstraining yourself. As it trains both agonist and antagonist (the partners in the movement), it prevents the development of the muscular imbalances that are detrimental to health. It ensures that whatever the sport, strength, endurance and coordination work well together. If you want to take up a particular sport, we recommend doing six months’ strength training either as preparation or in tandem with it. At Kieser, we have programs for all popular sports.

Elite Sport at Kieser

Due to the specificity of our equipment, we have been consulting in elite sport a number of years. Sports doctors and sports physiotherapists have seen the advantages our objective testing equipment can offer elite athletes.

We have screened whole squads as well as individual players to provide elite sport staff with more accurate and more specific information about injury risk and rehabilitation progress. 

In preparation for the 2015 season, we completed a screening project with the Geelong Football club, which involved screening the full squad and the identification of "High performing benchmarks" and "Low performing risk athletes". From there we designed a six-week intervention for the high risk athletes which included a re-assessment of strength for all players.
