Running and Sports physio

Running injuries and  in fact sports injuries in general, are frustrating, often preventing or limiting participation and performance.

Vital Core Physiotherapy takes an active approach to managing all sorts of sporting injuries and return to sport programs for both recreational and serious athletes of all ages.

Common conditions we manage;

  • Adolescent pains – often considered as ‘growing pains’ – Osgood Schlatters or Sever’s conditions.
  • Runners/ netballer’s knee
  • Ankle sprains
  • Swimmers shoulder
  • Runners ITB, chillies, hamstring or hip pain.
  • Tennis or golfers elbow
  • ACL reconstructions
  • Joint dislocations
  • Many more.

We take an early intervention approach to preventing any niggle or concern becoming an injury by analysing your biomechanics in order to optimise your efficiency whether it’s a tennis swing, throw, rowing stroke, kick, or stride. We also use slow motion video analysis to assist us with this process as required.

In your session your Vital Core Physio will determine what it is you want to achieve. You goals. Then they will thoroughly assess and diagnose your problem. Together you and your Vital Core Physio will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to get you back to those goals.

All treatment programs will include home exercises. Technique and skill is at the centre of every exercise we prescribe.

Recreational running is a particular interest to us and as such it is where we truly excel. If you are just getting back into running, or have recurrent niggles or injuries we can help. We also run a term based exercise program called RunFit.

RunFit class is held Monday nights through the school term as an 8 week program.
