Sports Injury Therapy Clinic in Melbourne South Accepting New Patients
Have you recently been injured playing sports? Are you looking for a sports injury therapist in Melbourne South? Maybe you simply want to prevent future sports injuries. If so, call MP Sports Physicians. We have comprehensive care for all your sports injury needs.
No Sports Injury Required
Although we are a sports injury clinic in Melbourne South, you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from our practice. Our philosophy is that we want to have most of the population up and working out as much as possible. It doesn’t matter whether you are an elite athlete, dabble in sports for recreation purposes, or if you don’t play sports at all. We provide therapy for those injured, but we also treat other conditions that can benefit from a structured and consistent exercise program.
Diabetes is one of the conditions that we strive to improve. Exercise can help you lose weight which improves blood sugar control. Working out also helps lower your glucose levels. In addition to creating tailored training programs that complement your existing diabetes treatment, we have a registered dietician at the clinic who will help establish a healthy diet and eating routine. When both diet and activity levels are enhanced, diabetes can improve drastically.
Another condition we can treat at our sports injury therapy clinic in Melbourne South is heart disease. If you’ve suffered a heart attack, our therapists can help create an exercise program that’s safe and practical. One of the biggest questions patients have is how much exercise they can do, how soon, and how hard can they train. We can help address these issues, but everyone’s body and medical condition are different, so our therapists tailor programs to fit each patient’s needs. Exercise can improve your blood pressure, which will help guard against future problems.
