There are two basic types of sports injury. Acute injuries are the unlucky times when you sprain an ankle or break a leg. Overuse injuries are more about your technique: putting too much strain on your body, so it breaks down over time.

Your particular type of sports injury really dictates your rehab. The important thing is to be specific: once we figure out why the injury happened, we use our expertise to minimise the chance it doesn’t happen again.





Before jumping into treatment, we need to know what’s going on. Sports injuries are all about thorough diagnosis, and sometimes that means specialist help or jumping into an MRI. Once we know the problem, we can work to relieve the pain with early intervention strategies such as hands-on treatment or dry needling. 



For impact injuries – broken bones, strained ligaments and so on – the Restore phase is about specific guidance on healing times. For overuse injuries, like Tennis Elbow, hip pain or chronic knee pain, we’ll examine your movement mechanics and fix your technique.



Perform is the final treatment phase. For sports injuries, this is all about putting your clinical program into practice. Building muscle strength and resilience, improving your flexibility, and slowly working through functional movements. Check out our classes for more information.



Drawing on her experience with the Melbourne Demons, Sarah has clinical expertise and a keen interest in rehabilitating sports and exercise injuries. She is passionate about implementing programs that will help you achieve long-term, high-level function of your injured area and entire musculoskeletal system, as well as developing injury prevention strategies to avoid future occurrences.

Sarah is also an eager runner herself and can help you identify all the factors that may have contributed to your running injury. She will work with you to improve your mobility, strength and speed in the areas that need it to help improve both your performance and pain.

She loves to see all types of sports and running injuries – from the unlucky ankle sprain or hamstring tear, all the way to your chronic knee or hip pain that’s been bothering you for months!



Ash understands the importance of the mind and  body to be functioning well to optimise performance on the field. Having overcome an achillies injury herself, Ash understands that rehab is all about trusting the process. Through working with Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Rebels Academy program and recently within Gold Coast & District Rugby Union, Ash has developed a wealth of knowledge in managing acute sports injuries through to implementing evidence based return to sport protocols. By creating a custom program for your sports demands, Ash will help get you back kicking goals.
