Top Myths on the Sports Injury Clinic

The top myth surrounding the sports injury clinic is it only accepts athletes. A major factor for this is the deluge of news feeds and reports about the Kobe Bryant’s or the Tiger Woods of the world undergoing specialised therapy for a variety of injuries. You don’t exactly hear Tom down the street or Sophie at the office going to a therapy centre after complaining of a swollen ankle or painful knee. More than likely, when ordinary people feel any pain in their body—regardless of whether they are a result of playing sports—they go to the hospital.

The cost of treatment is prohibitive

To say that going to a sports physiotherapy clinic will cost you an arm and leg would be grossly inaccurate. It’s a sweeping statement that is not based on facts. Sure, there are treatments that can be expensive such as orthopaedic surgery, for example, or an MRI but these are just for extreme cases. Most sports injury can be cured using affordable yet time-tested methods perfected by these therapy centres. Some patients are even sent home if the injury only needs a little bit of rest and medicine.

You go to the clinic when injuries are severe

Over the years, these centres have evolved into a holistic health and wellness facilities to cover all aspects of sports science. You don’t even have to have an injury to visit one of these clinics. People who want to lose weight can avail of the exercise physiology service, for example, where experts assess your health, strength and weaknesses to design a specific program to shed off those unwanted pounds. You can also go to these centres to work with a nutritionist or dietician in a Melbourne clinic to come up with a menu of nourishing foods needed to recover quickly in case of injury or just live a strong and healthy life.

You need a doctor’s endorsement

The patient doesn’t need to see his doctor before undergoing sports physiotherapy. Contrary to the common perception, these clinics employ doctors to make the proper evaluation of your condition. For insurance purposes, however, your insurer may need a certification and referral from your own doctor before they will cover the ensuing cost of treatment. This is especially true if the expense is considerable. If you are having a food surgery for example, check with your Australian insurance company first if your policy covers orthopaedic surgery in Melbourne. It’s better safe than be sorry.
