The Physioworks Health Group place a strong focus on health and well-being education of our community.

A key initiative for best reach into our communities is our wide ranging support for local sporting leagues and clubs across all age groups. In season 2019, Physioworks Heath Group is the physiotherapy and health care partner for the West Gippsland Football Netball Competition (WGFNC), the Ellinbank Football & Netball League (EDFL), the South East Juniors (SEJ) and South Eastern Women’s Football (SEWF), along with junior clubs, the Ashy Redbacks (YJFL) and the Waverley Park Hawks (SMJFL).

Education of trainers, coaches and parents on the latest sports injury prevention and management is a key ongoing focus for the Physioworks team in supporting these communities.

In the opening weeks of the 2019 football and netball season, Physioworks Heath Group have run multiple Injury Prevention and Management Education Nights, in support of trainers, coaches and parents for leagues, and for the individual clubs, as well as for local community partners, such as Snap Fitness.

Injury Prevention Education Night

These interactive sessions focus on how to prevent and manage footy/netball related injuries, as well as how to achieve optimal performance on game day.  The sessions cover a range of specific topics including concussion, pre and post-game nutrition and hydration, recovery, stretching, strapping and taping.

Physioworks Health Group Director David Francis said “Physioworks Health Group love being part of our local community sport and assisting in the health and well-being of the community. Injury prevention education of trainers, coaches and parents helps optimise participation. And it is really important, that when injuries do occur there is a good level of care and management for the player, no matter what age or level of competition. Physioworks Health Group see education of injury as the key reason for our partnership and involvement in multiple community football and netball leagues and clubs”
