Sports Physiotherapy for Netball
Perform better and achieve your goals
How can RHP Physiotherapy help you?
Netball is a fierce and physically demanding sport played by many women around Australia. It is the most popular sport played by women in most Commonwealth nations, with approximately one million women playing in Australia.
The stop-start nature of Netball places a lot of work through the lower limb. This is reflected in the injury rates of knee and ankles being the most common cause for people taking short (and long) times recovering from injury.
Unfortunately the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is injured more often in women playing sports such as Netball, Soccer (football) and Touch Football. These can take anywhere between 9-24 months to return to sport and unfortunately only 2/3rds of people manage a full return to the same level of sport.
This can be done better for both preventing knee and ankle injuries, but also returning to the game. Why return to the same physical ability? Why not more?
Sports physiotherapy is about enhancing performance, not just treating injuries.
RHP Physiotherapists will assess how you move, including running, landing patterns, balance, range of motion, and strength to guide exercise choice and training advice.

Sam has been amazing in treating my unsolved running injuries. Appointments are very thorough and he's highly supportive of my desire to stay active and fit. Highly recommend!
I've been in a few times now to see Mal and highly recommend his service for his clarity, patience and approachability. He is clearly highly skilled, and his great ability to support me towards improvement is the proof!
In just a few visits Mal identified and fixed my back and shoulder pain. My posture is significantly improved and thanks to the exercises Mal gave me I’m confident of staying pain free. Thank you very much!
