Musculoskeletal/Sport Injuries

At Bell Place Physiotherapy we have extensive experience in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. Sport is an integral part of life in Australia. Injuries do occur and we can help, not only in the treatment of acute injuries, but we can also give advice on injury prevention and rehabilitation programs.
