Soccer is in the DNA of RHP Physiotherapy. RHP Physiotherapy clinicians have played, coached, watched, ruminated, cheered, dreamt and lived soccer forever.

In terms of football, how can RHP Physiotherapy help you?

Our physiotherapists are experienced at assessing, diagnosing and treating football injuries. Aside from the injuries, there are many facets to football regarding an athlete’s physical body and performance that are often not considered. We have extensive experience and knowledge of training load, movement mechanics and other areas involved with prevention of football injuries.

RHP Physiotherapy is an industry leader in providing physical screenings to female and male football players. These screenings aim to identify any physical detriment the player possesses that may predisposes them to injury. Appropriate corrective exercises can then be provided and reviewed, with the goal of reducing injury rates.

Whether you are an injured soccer player, a player wishing to enhance performance or prevent injury, or a coach who wants injury prevention strategies and physiotherapy support for your team, RHP can provide the best possible care. 

The Oval Pill

We have provided physiotherapy support for The Western Magpies AFL club (Mal Fayers) at Sherwood and The QAFL state team for many years in the past. This involved consistent support of the club throughout each season, assisting with game coverage, recovery sessions, training assistance and injury management strains. We have also provided physiotherapy coverage to Marist College Ashgrove First XV Rugby and First XI football teams. Currently, Will Thwaite is providing support to Stretton State College rugby team.

  • Hamstring tears
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Groin injuries
  • Quadriceps strains
  • Ankle sprains
  • Finger injuries
  • General bumps and bruises

The RHP Physiotherapy team is highly skilled in the management of the whole body, as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies to ensure that you can complete the season in the best shape possible.
