Inner West Sports Physiotherapy Services
We are strong musculoskeletal physiotherapists and experienced in the field of getting athletes back on the field safely in the quickest possible manner. We use evidence based protocols to tailor recovery programs to the individual’s load and training pattern.
Apart from traditional physiotherapy services, we offer SFMA and FMS movement screens that let us systematically assess your movement patterns. We will then decide whether there is an underlying weakness we need to investigate further, and create an exercise program to target it. Pre-season screening has proven to be very popular among sports clubs and teams to reduce the rate of injury during training and games.

We will put you through a set of tasks that gives us a picture of how well your body works overall. We will then decide whether there is an underlying weakness we need to investigate further, and create an exercise program to target it.
FMS has been studied among professional soccer, basketball and football teams, special ops soldiers and even firefighters, and is suitable for people of any age or athletic ability.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
If you’re already injured, we use the Selective Functional Movement Assessment as part of our initial physiotherapy assessment. We’ll put you through a series of movement tasks that let us highlight shortcomings in mobility or motor control. We’ll combine the results with our physiotherapy knowledge to decide whether an underlying movement weakness may be contributing to your pain.
This tool helps us plan a more accurate and complete treatment that targets pain at the source.
