Weight Loss

Weight loss is a complicated topic that's filled with many opinions, fad diets and at times, misinformation. There's often an assumption that "one-size-fits-all", and the methods that were effective for one person will work for everyone else. If only it was that easy...

You should be aiming to achieve an "energy in / energy out" balance. This means balancing the food we consume to give us energy, to power us appropriately for all the activities that we do during the day. Ideally, if we took an average across several weeks, the input from our diet will match the output from our activities without a significant deficit or excess present.

Osteoporosis Prevention

What is it?
Osteoporosis is the term used to describe when a person’s bone mineral density is lower than normal. It occurs when the body loses bone faster than it can rebuild, resulting in the weakening of the bones themselves. Weaker or brittle bones have a significantly increased risk of fracture from what may seem like an inconsequential bump or fall.

High Performance

Allsports Physio now offers High Performance Testing within our Parkwood clinic, servicing customers throughout the south-east Queensland regions.

This includes:

ACL rehabilitation and return to play testingShoulder rehabilitation and return to play testingFoot and ankle rehabilitation and return to play testingSpinal rehabilitation and return to play testingGroin rehabilitation and return to play testingRunning gait kinematic video analysis

Offering comprehensive testing batteries for the above injuries to help inform exercise prescription for rehabilitation, our aim is to achieve ultimate suitability to return to play.

Each testing protocol has been designed using the best available evidence and utilises cutting-edge technology. This includes (but is not limited to) load cell isometric testing, VALD ForceDecks (force platform), VALD ForceFrame and slow-motion kinematic video analysis.

The data collected is referenced to normative data for the individual’s sport, or known standards based on our internal data collection. This allows us to objectively prioritise the requirements for a successful rehabilitation and forms the basis for the decision as to when an athlete is appropriate to return to their sport.

Testing batteries are recommended at different time-points, depending on the injury being rehabilitated. Testing can be performed in isolation, with the results being sent to the referring clinician or healthcare professional (as well as the athlete themselves).

Rehabilitation Programming

For athletes being rehabilitated in-house, testing results can be interpreted by one of our team members who has expertise in strength and conditioning to design / update the athlete’s rehabilitation program. This ensures that the detailed information that is collected is accurately translated to the most appropriate exercise interventions, to accelerate the rehabilitation process and minimising the risk of future injury.

In addition to maximising the opportunity for a successful return to play, the programs are designed to concurrently improve athletic performance. This gives athlete’s the chance to return to their sport in better condition than they were pre-injury, giving them confidence to perform at their best.

Supervised Rehabilitation

We are now offering clinical rehabilitation classes which extends the opportunity for athletes to complete their rehabilitation under the supervision of an experienced physiotherapist or exercise physiologist. These classes have limited availability to ensure a low clinician-athlete ratio. These classes are eligible for private-health rebates, ensure a high level of accountability and athlete competency in performing the rehabilitation exercises and negates the need to join the gym.

Equipment used

With the ForceFrame Strength Testing System, we are able to measure and assess your strength and imbalances. Previously limited to elite sporting teams including many of those in the NBA, NFL and EPL and a number of performance and research centres. Our clinic has invested in this technology to make it available to you.

Once your assessment is complete, the system will generate a result of how your body moves and we will use this information to work with you to track progress and key milestones to reach your goals whether that be pain-free, return to sport or your daily activities. It can also identify changes in strength before you get injured.

How does the ForceFrame work?

The ForceFrame is more accurate than how we have measured strength with you previously and can measure multiple muscle groups at once. Data captured from the force measurement shows your strength in real-time, and the maximum strength for each repetition and average strength across all repetitions is highlighted for quick review.

Gather a complete assessment of your strength and identify imbalances and areas to work on.This instantaneous capture and analysis allow your practitioner to make faster and better decisions for your performance or rehab program.

Who can benefit from ForceFrame analysis?

People with enquiries, pre-op and post-op. Athletes looking to improve their strength and prevent injuries.

Is this only for assessments?

No, this can also be very useful for rehabilitation and training. We can build a tailored program for you to build strength.

With ForceDecks Dual Plate System we are able to measure and assess your strength, side-to-side differences and movement through a range of exercises and jumps.

Once your assessment is complete, the system will generate a report of how your body moves and we will use this information to work with you to track progress and key milestones to reach your goals whether that be pain-free, performance, return-to- sport or your daily activities.

How does ForceDecks work?

ForceDecks gather a complete assessment of strength and power as well as the movements you need to perform in daily activities or sport, including squats, lunges, deadlifts, jumps, hops, push-ups, and more.

See your results instantly captured and analysed to allow your practitioner to gather objective data to make decisions for your performance or rehab program.

Who can benefit from ForceDecks analysis?

People with injuries pre-op and post-op. Athletes looking to improve their strength and prevent injuries. Exercise plan for older individuals to improve balance and strength and prevent falls.

Is this only for assessments?

No, this can also be very useful for rehabilitation and training.
