Rehabilitation

How can the Australian Hip and Groin Clinic help you?

At Australian Sports Physiotherapy, our experienced physiotherapists specialise in the diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of all your hip and groin injuries.

Our physiotherapists will diagnose and offer you expert advice on the best course of treatment, and this may depend on your symptoms and imaging. Conservative care may involve education and lifestyle and activity modifications.

Physiotherapy led rehabilitation aims to improve your hip stability, neuromuscular control, strength, range of motion and restore your normal movement patterns.

Arthroscopic Surgery Rehabilitation

Arthroscopic surgery aims to improve the hip joint morphology and repair damaged tissue. Ultimately, good management may require the use of all these various approaches.

Our Physiotherapy rehabilitation program is based on the Takla – O’Donnell Protocol (TOD) (created by our senior physiotherapist, Associate Prof. Amir Takla and respected Orthopaedic surgeon, Prof. John O’Donnell).The TOD protocol was recently utilised in the FAIR trial (a randomised controlled trial RCT) and was found to return patients to activity significantly faster than patients who had a standard exercise program.To date, this is the only physiotherapy rehabilitation program that has been tested.
