Allied Health Support & Sports Medicine
The majority of sports injuries resolve with the simple rest and ice (RICE) method, where for the first 48 hours you rest a soft tissue injury and apply ice for 20 minutes every two hours to help reduce pain and swelling.
However, if an injury persists, involves a suspected fracture, or causes severe pain, then a medical review is warranted with relevant imaging and appropriate referrals being organised. These injuries may require treatment by a doctor specialising in sports medicine in order to optimise performance and reduce long term effects.
Allied Health Services Australia provide a range of services within our medical centre. These allied health professionals are able to design an appropriate rehabilitation program to ensure you are able to return to your full capacity as soon as possible.
