Sports Physiotherapy for Touch Football
Perform better and achieve your goals
How can RHP help you?
Touch football is Australia’s most played social sport. Due to the high speed, change of direction, backwards running, sprinting and diving components, Touch Football does have its fair share of injuries.
Typical injuries seen in Touch Football athletes include;
- Acute knee ligament injuries
- Acute ankle ligament injuries
- Patellofemoral pain
- Lower back pain
- Muscle strains (hamstring, calf & quad)
With many of these injuries being non-contact, the biomechanics and quality of your movement is vital for your return from injury. This also forms the basis for injury prevention.
Well designed injury prevention programmes reduce the risk of ligament injuries (eg ACL injuries) for athletes. These programmes attempt to improve an athletes strength and neuromuscular control to improve landing and cutting techniques.
RHP Physiotherapist Talia Yarden has represented Australia in Touch Football which makes her the perfect fit for your Touch Football injury and injury preventative needs.
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!
