Australian Defence Force

Australian Defence Force - Enhance Physiotherapy

Welcome to the first on many blogs from the team at Enhance Physiotherapy Albury-Wodonga.  The first topic we would like to discuss is our involvement with the Australian Defence Force.


Enhance Physiotherapy Albury-Wodonga provides quality service to the team at the Blamey Barrocks in Kapooka.  This base is the initial training base for the army.  The recruits have a 12-week program where they go from being an everyday civilian to a soldier.  The program is extremely fast paced with recruits going through a series of physical and mental challenges to prepare them for their future employment training.


Given the extremely physical nature of the training program there are injuries that must be managed and addressed.  That is where we come in!  The majority of injuries are overuse injuries (recruits do not get a day off in 12 weeks!)  including:


  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
  • Calf and Achilles pain
  • Knee pain
  • Back pain


We work closely with the recruits, staff, sports doctors to get the best outcome for the recruits to continue their successful training.  Facilitating and managing the rehabilitation has helped us become experts in the field of overuse injuries and will help our Albury Wodonga clients.  If you have an injury that is just not responding to current management, please do not hesitate to give us a call.  Please remember ‘rest is not always best’.


We look forward to providing you with further information in our future blog series.
