Each initial consultation at our clinic is carefully structured to last at least 45min, ensuring that our physiotherapists have sufficient time to thoroughly assess any sports injury your child may have. Our team is highly experienced with youth sports injuries and is committed to supporting your young athlete’s recovery.

We recognize that young athletes, whether they are training competitively or engaging in recreational sports, desire a swift and comprehensive recovery from injuries, pain, or mobility issues. During your first visit, expect a thorough discussion about your child’s symptoms and the potential causes of their injury, followed by a comprehensive physical examination. This detailed evaluation helps us diagnose the condition accurately.

After the assessment, your physiotherapist will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored specifically for your child’s needs. With your consent, we can start treatment right away.

Recovery and rehabilitation may include exercises to be done at home or inside our facility. We provide a variety of allied health services directly at our facility and maintain strong partnerships with external health specialists, ensuring that your child has access to comprehensive care if specialized treatment is required.

No doctor’s referral is needed for your first consultation. If you have private health insurance, please bring your card to the consultation.

We look forward to welcoming you and your young athlete to our practice and are excited to help them return to their best form and continue safely enjoying their sports activities!
