Concussion Management

Our physiotherapists have undergone extensive concussion management training which allows them to implement strategies to ensure a full and safe recovery.

Our physiotherapists will work with you and your family, doctor, school, work and coaches to implement a gradual and progressive return to learn/work and return to sports program. They will address any concurrent problems arising from a concussion including neck injuries, vestibular impairments or metabolic issues.

We can work with your sporting teams to implement club wide pre-screening assessments. This is the safest way to ensure that the recommendations post-concussion lead to a responsible and safe recovery. Never mind if you don’t have a baseline test, our team are well equipped to assess and treat your concussion even without the baseline information.

Our team have the facilities and training to:

  • Complete baseline testing (pre-concussion screening)
  • Concussion assessments
  • Implement treatment strategies for safe return to sport

Junior Athlete Development

Athlete development is critical to ensuring optimal performance and reducing the risk of injury.

The growing number of injuries especially in Junior populations highlights the need for robust exercise programming. Recent evidence now confirms that progressive weight training under the guidance of a suitably qualified health professional is both safe and effective for enhancing performance and reducing injury risk.

Our clinicians have undergone extensive training through the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA). They have worked at elite levels with athletes of all ages including the Commonwealth games, AFL clubs Greater Western Sydney and the Western Bulldogs, Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and the Murray Bushrangers as well as many local sporting clubs.

We have developed an elite Junior development program that is suitable for all skill levels. If you have never stepped foot in a gym before or if you attend a gym regularly this course is for you. Our team will take you step by step through the core elements of the program ensuring you maintain a safe an optimal technique. We believe this program will allow you to reach your full sporting potential and at the very least introduce you to the key elements of a gym program.

If you would like more information or to book and appointment, please call our clinic or book online.

Pre-Season Screenings

Enhance Physiotherapy offers pre-season screenings for all sporting clubs and organisations.

Physiotherapists at Enhance will then be able to form an individualised, structured treatment plan for athletes to address these deficits and reduce their risk of injury in-season, helping to keep you on the sporting field and playing at your best. These treatment plans may include individualised home exercise programs, strength and conditioning, structured running programs and advice on sport-specific training.

These screenings can identify deficits in range of motion, strength, muscle control, balance, proprioception and sports specific skills, which are often contributing factors to future injury and poorer sporting performance.

The Enhance team includes a Titled APA Sports Physiotherapist, while multiple Enhance physiotherapists have experience with elite level sporting organisations, including Commonwealth Games basketball, AFL and NRL. Enhance physiotherapists have a passion for bringing their knowledge of elite level exercise programming back to the local area.
