Recover like a Rebel

2 Jun 2016

Recover Sports Medicine has been the official supplier of Soft Tissue Therapies, Pilates, Bio Mechanical Analysis and Clinical Research to the Melbourne Rebels Rugby Union Team since 2011.

Recover Sports Medicine (RSM) is a multidisciplinary sports medicine group founded in November 2005 and operates from an easily accessible, high performance centre in Richmond.

The team at RSM is committed to bringing elite level care to all our patients, from a professional athlete to all members of the general public.

Our practitioners focus on detailed diagnostic assessment, thorough explanations, hands on treatment and comprehensive advice to achieve the best possible results in the shortest time.

Coming from a background of treating professional sportsmen and women, we understand that accurate diagnosis and a fast resolution of injuries is essential. Our team are currently working with elite athletes across all sports, including AFL, NRL, A-League, Athletics Australia, Triathlon Australia, Olympic Winter Institute of Australia, Cricket and Basketball Victoria, providing expertise in preventing and managing injury and illness.

This allows our practitioners to bring their knowledge and experience when treating a wide variety of injuries within the general public. We specialise in treating patients with sporting and everyday life injuries, pre and post operative rehabilitation following surgery to achieving sport and fitness performance outcomes. At RSM we provide expert physiotherapists, sports physicians, myotherapists, dietitians, podiatrists, exercise physiologists and sports psychologists to ensure optimal outcomes of your injury, illness or performance issues.

Our clinic allows our patients access to cutting edge technology previously reserved for the elite to aid rehabilitation and increase performance, including a Bio Mechanical 3D Analysis and ultrasound imaging. We feature a state-of-the-art clinical pilates studio which facilitates both individual and small group sessions run by our highly experienced and qualified physiotherapists.

They utilise their expertise in clinical pilates as a rehabilitation tool for injury management through to performance enhancement and strength conditioning. RSM is also excited to be one of a very few elite rehabilitation facilities that has an anti-gravity, Alter G Treadmill that is accessible to patients of the clinic and members of the community. This revolutionary medical rehabilitation treadmill with its unique differential air pressure technology provides accurate, safe and comfortable partial weight-bearing therapy while promoting normal gait pattern.

The Biomotion Lab, exclusively available in the southern hemisphere at our clinic, is the most advanced method of analysing movement currently available and allows quick and accurate three dimensional (3D) bio mechanical analysis of athletic movement. The Lab is a reliable and repeatable method of identifying movement characteristics which far exceeds that achieved by other methods including the human eye and conventional video analysis. It is the new benchmark for assessing movement in a quick, reliable and exciting fashion.

This technology can assess joint ranges, ground reaction forces, force generated around joints and can deliver these results in a meaningful way. As a result of these tests, you and your treating practitioner have objective data to identify areas of weakness, loss of control or restriction which may be the underlying cause of your injury, for an elite athlete to an active member of the general public. Our Biomotion Lab Services include, Injury Prevention and Treatment, Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation, Running Gait Analysis, ACL Injury Screening, Workplace Lifting Technique Assessment and Sport Specific Technique Analysis.

The team at Recover Sports Medicine are passionate about treating all patients from elite athletes to active individuals, including adults and youths, employers and employees, non-sporting individuals and those with disabilities.

We are into our 5th season working with the Melbourne Rebels, we look forward to another great year and wish the boys all the best for Season 2016! #GoRebels!
