Sports Physiotherapist Central Victoria

Revive, restore, and rejuvenate your athletic abilities with sports physiotherapy.

About Sports Physiotherapy

Sports physiotherapy is a branch of our Bendigo physio treatment along with our two satellite clinics in Maryborough and Castlemaine. It is physical therapy that focuses on the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and physical activity. It involves assessing and managing acute injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as chronic conditions and performance issues that may impact your ability to participate in sports or physical activities. Our sports physiotherapists work with athletes at all levels, from amateur to professional, providing tailored treatments, rehabilitation exercises, and advice with the aim of helping you to recover from injuries, enhancing your performance, and preventing future injuries.


Your Path to Recovery From Sports Injuries Starts Here

We work with people participating in a wide range of sports and activities, including football, netball, running, tennis, golf, cricket, basketball, rock climbing, hiking, and more.

Acute Injuries

When it comes to acute injuries like joint sprains, muscle strains, or injuries from falls, our sports physiotherapists can assist you throughout the recovery process. From managing initial pain to rehabilitating the affected area for a safe return to your sport, we provide comprehensive care. We also offer valuable advice on injury prevention to help you stay in the game.

Chronic Injuries

Chronic injuries, whether they involve repetitive strain or ongoing pain and stiffness, can hinder both performance and enjoyment. Our approach goes beyond symptom management – we focus on identifying the root cause of the problem. By addressing the underlying issues, we aim to help you overcome these challenges and improve your overall well-being.


Performance is influenced by various physical attributes such as strength, balance, mobility, and flexibility. If any of these areas are holding you back from reaching your full potential in activities like swinging, kicking, throwing, or bowling, our sports physiotherapists aim to assist. By assessing the specific issue and collaborating with you, we can develop a personalised plan to enhance your performance, regardless of your skill level.

Pre-Pointe Assessment

Our pre-pointe assessments are designed for dancers commencing pointe work. Your physiotherapist will assess your strength, identifying any areas of weakness or concern. From there, they will determine whether you’re ready to start pointe work and how to maximise performance while minimising the risk of injury.

Bike Assessment

Bike fit assessments are evaluations conducted by physiotherapists to ensure that a cyclist's bike is properly adjusted to their body and riding style. A well-fitted bike can improve comfort, reduce the risk of injury, and enhance performance by optimising the rider's biomechanics and power transfer.


Sports Physiotherapy Treatment Techniques

We use a wide range of treatment techniques to help you get back on the field, court, or footpath, including:
