How can we help

If your injury is serious and if pain or swelling lasts longer then it is recommended you see a physiotherapist or a doctor for an assessment of your injury.

At leap physiotherapy we commonly see athletes ranging from weekend warriors and to those competing at high level sports. We provide expert advice and treatment and aim to safely return you to your previous level of activity. The time frame for rehabilitation varies based on the severity of the injury.

Following a comprehensive assessment, we design a treatment plan, perform mobilization if required, alleviate pain with soft tissue release and provide a tailored exercise program to speed up your recovery and to return you back to shape. The focus is also on addressing the cause of the injury and providing prevention strategies.
