Sydney Sports Medicine is ideally placed to rapidly assess and manage injured workers. The skill set of Sports Physicians and Sports Physiotherapists puts them at a distinct advantage over many other treating physicians and allied health professionals.
Sydney Sports Medicine has a long history of providing accurate diagnosis, rapid and appropriate investigations and evidence-based treatment programs for workplace injuries.
Sports Physicians and Sports Physiotherapists have special training in managing both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Common injury pat- terns seen in the injured worker include back and neck injuries, overuse tendon injuries (seen often in the shoulder and elbow), knee cartilage and ligament injuries and ankle ligament damage.
These injury patterns are also seen in sports and exercise. The sports health professional is able to apply evidence- based treatment in a timely and appropriate manner in an effort to return the injured worker, with minimal time lost.
In addition, appropriate investigations and rapid referral is possible to facilitate further treatment options as required.
