Physio Fit provides numerous physiotherapy services to athletes, sporting clubs and associations all over Adelaide. Our physiotherapists currently work with various sports of all levels, providing expert care from grass roots clubs right through to South Australian State and National teams and athletes.
When working with athletes, sporting teams or associations, we not only look after the players during competition, but we strive to provide care all year round through presenting injury management and recovery workshops, providing pre-season musculoskeletal screenings and implementing injury prevention programs.
Match Day & Competition Coverage
Our match day coverage service allows our Physiotherapists, Remedial Massage Therapists and Podiatrists to work with clubs at trainings and on the side lines during matches, so that players have access to quality care before, during and after competition. Having an allied health team working with your club can greatly benefit sporting teams as coaches, players and parents have full confidence that a health professional is present to assess whether a player is fit to continue or whether an individual should take the field in the first place.
Having medical staff, such as doctors, attending matches is a luxury that many clubs do not have, and having a health professional who can make decisions on medical conditions and player management, as well as provide initial care and advice is essential in moving forward as a club in terms of player care and professionalism.
Additional Team Services
Your Physiotherapy appointment will consist of:
Listening – We listen to understand you, what activities you enjoy, how your problem has presented and how it affects your life.
Accurate diagnosis – We may need to refer you for diagnostic imaging such as MRI, X-Ray or ultrasound.
Assessing & addressing the causative factors to your injury – We settle your pain & address the reason why it presented.
This will allow us to create a personalised management plan, in which we will encompass your goals, a clear diagnosis and a time frame to achieve these within.
We are passionate about what we do and we are here to guide you every step of the way!
Appropriate Clothing – We may be getting you to do some exercise as part of your assessment. Please, dress appropriately for this if possible.
Previous Medical Imaging Results – If you have had any imaging done for your current injury, please bring these along to your appointment. If you don’t have access to them, that’s completely fine - we will be able to access them if we need to.
Referral – A referral isn’t required to see a physiotherapist privately. However, if you are part of the Medicare EPC, DVA, Work Cover or Third Party Insurance programs, you will need to bring your referral on the day.
Private Health Insurance Card – We require you to have your Private Health Insurance card with you to claim your rebate on the spot through HICAPS.
If you are a private physiotherapy client then no referral is required and you can book in as soon as it fits into your schedule. If you have an injury which is covered by either DVA, Medicare EPC, Work Cover or Third Party Insurance programs, then you will need to bring this along; otherwise you can pay the full appointment fee and claim back later from the relevant program above.
We have HICAPS terminals at both of our clinics which allows us to process your private health insurance claim on the spot, meaning that you only have to pay the ‘gap’ remaining.
