About Sports Lab Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy at Sports Lab includes the assessment and treatment of all musculoskeletal problems. This includes any injury to the muscles, bones or joints in the body, including the back and neck.
The Physiotherapists at Sports Lab have years of experience in many different areas of Physiotherapy. All have worked with sports teams and spent years in hospital based settings treating acute injuries.
This level of experience ensures premium care for any injury.
Sports Lab Physiotherapists are very ‘hands on’ with treatment. This means that you will receive dedicated one on one care throughout you entire treatment session. Our therapists are skilled in joint manual therapy and muscle release techniques and are skilled in biomechanical analysis.
We liaise closely with a network of GP’s, Sports Physicians and Orthopaedic Surgeons and pride ourselves in referring complex cases to the appropriate practitioner for the required imaging or neurological testing. This gives the best chance for the most accurate diagnosis for your injury and prevents extended months of treatment in the absence of a definitive pathology or diagnosis. Our aim is to treat the cause of your injury, not just the symptoms.
Customised exercise programs are developed for all patients with ample time for demonstration of exercise technique and education of the physiology of injury healing. We are able to use video analysis (when appropriate) for diagnosis and exercise demonstration and utilise the new ‘e physio’ program to deliver customised exercise programs.
The Physiotherapy team work in conjunction with experienced manual therapists in sessions that are 60 minutes duration. These extra long appointments mean that all aspects of your injury will be considered and treated in the one session.

“All things are difficult before they are easy.”By Unknown
Physiotherapy at Sports Lab also offers the opportunity for our unique integrated assessment and treatment system. In this system, patients have the option to be assessed (at the same time) by Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Muscle Therapy and Podiatry, in the one extra long session. Treatment is then based on consensus between therapists for the optimal result.
