Specialist Sports & Exercise Physiotherapy service now available
Kay Copeland, one of our most experienced practitioners here at Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic, is now a Specialist Sports & Exercise Physiotherapist* (as awarded by the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2018).
In this role she will act as a consultant to current treating practitioners to progress complex conditions.
Complex conditions are those that:
- could have multiple injuries or components, or
- have an extended history that is not improving or resolving, or
- have an unusual condition or presentation.
Kay will see the patient for 1-2 extended consults to develop a comprehensive management plan that includes ongoing objectives along with rehabilitation and strengthening exercises that are focused towards achieving the patient's goal.
She will work with the current treating practitioner(s) to implement the management plan and transition the patient back to the ongoing treating practitioner.
If you have any questions about this service or need to book a consult with Kay, please phone us on 9481 5744.
*To achieve this Specialist title Kay completed an extensive two-year training program along with clinical examinations. She is one of only 10 Physiotherapists in Victoria with this clinical speciality!
