Optimal outcomes are achieved by receiving accurate diagnosis and specialised management of musculoskeletal trauma and load-related injury, as quickly as possible so you can return to your previous level of activity or sport.
This is what our specialist training allows us to do for you.
We work in close collaboration with other professionals including surgeons, GPs, physiotherapists and other allied health practitioners to ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome.
Concussion is the most common type of mild traumatic brain injury and can have serious consequences unless addressed in a timely manner. Our doctors have unique training in assessment and management of concussion with relevance to the particular sport you play and National Sporting Organisation Guidelines.
Our assessment involves:
Making an early and accurate diagnosis of concussion
Formalised SCAT assessment including symptom scoring, balance assessment and cognitive function tests
Cervical spine and neurological examination
Provision of a full treatment plan focussed on resolution of symptoms and return to school/work and sporting activity.
Call us as soon as possible after the concussion has occurred for an appointment.
Whether you’re a female athlete wanting to perform at your best or are committed to exercise for health, we recognise that females are unique and over a lifetime have changing physiology with unique hormonal and physical issues. We can advise you on:
Safe and optimal exercise throughout your pregnancy and in the post-partum phase
Prevention and management of bone loss/osteoporosis associated with menopause
Diagnosis and management of conditions such as Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S), bone stress fractures and irregular menstrual cycles and fatigue, that impact your activity and health.
If any of these issues are relevant to you, ask your GP for a referral, so that we can help you get back on track.
