Get Back In The Game With AFL Physiotherapy

AFL is a fast, skillful, highly physical game. Elite players push their bodies to the absolute limit. It’s no surprise injuries are common.

That strained hamstring, rolled ankle, or recurring back niggle can sideline you from footy when you least expect it.

But you don’t have to miss a match due to injury. Our expert AFL physiotherapists can get you safely back on the field doing what you love.

How AFL Physio Can Help

At Bounty Physio, our AFL physiotherapists take a holistic approach to diagnosis and rehabilitation of football injuries.

We begin with a thorough assessment to identify the underlying causes of your injury. This includes:

  • Evaluating joint mobility, muscle flexibility, core stability, strength and balance
  • Analysis of your specific positional and movement demands on the field
  • Review of training load, recovery practices, and any protective equipment used

With this information, we develop a customised recovery program including:

  • Hands-on techniques like massage, mobilisations, manipulations to restore optimal joint and tissue mobility
  • Targeted stretching, release work and foam rolling to relieve muscle tension
  • Strengthening plans for weak muscles and injury-prone areas like knees, ankles, shoulders
  • Football-specific agility, power and conditioning exercises
  • Gradual return to skills training and contact work
  • Ongoing modifications to prevent re-injury, enhance performance and longevity
  • We also collaborate closely with your coaching and high performance staff to seamlessly integrate physiotherapy with your football development.

Common Football Injuries We Treat

Some frequent football injuries we rehabilitate include:

  • Hamstring strain – Sprinting, kicking and rapid change of direction places huge demand on hamstrings making them prone to strains. Graduated strengthening and high-speed training ensures complete recovery and reduces reinjury risk.
  • Calf strain – Fast acceleration and constant change of pace strains calf muscles. Treatment focuses on restoring flexibility, strength and reactive ability.
  • Ankle sprain – Rolling the ankle when landing awkwardly from a mark or chase is common. Regaining proper ankle joint control, strength and balance is key.
  • ACL rupture – Twisting knee injuries from collisions often affect the ACL. Our goal is to restore optimal leg strength and function before clearance to return.
  • Shoulder dislocation – The high-impact nature of contests risks shoulder dislocations. Physio aims to stabilise the shoulder joint through strength and neuromuscular control.
  • Hip and groin strains – Kicking, changing direction at speed, and side-stepping place substantial load on the hip adductors and internal rotators. Multi-faceted rehab is tailored to the specific demands of your role.
  • Back muscle strains – The constant bending, twisting and rotation involved in contesting the ball takes its toll on back muscles. Treatment aims to improve spinal stability, mobility, body control and core strength.
