Elite and General Sports Injury Management


If you have a sports related injury or concern, no matter what your sport or level of participation, Physioworks Health Group can help.

Led by David Francis who has been the Senior Physiotherapist at Collingwood Football Club since 1995, our team of sports health professionals have the skills to accurately diagnoses and treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal sporting conditions.

Our team will advise when further investigations such as ultrasounds, CT’s and MRI’s are required and we have relationships with a wide range of health professionals, to ensure for example, that you benefit from a skilled ultrasonographer or radiographer. We also have an extensive referral network should referral to a Sports Physician, Surgeon or other medical practitioner be required.

Managing treatment of a sporting condition and getting back to your sport involves knowing how to plan a progressive return to sport with knowledge of when to return to training, training loads and communicating with coaches. We can help with your rehabilitation in all these areas.

If your injury requires more than Physiotherapy we can provide other health care therapies including Podiatry, Exercise Physiology, Massage Therapy and Clinical Pilates, all at our clinic location, with practitioners who can fully co-ordinate your rehabilitation.
