Physioworks Health Group Director David Francis (FACP) has a long term association with the Collingwood Football Club (CFC) having worked with the AFL club in a physiotherapy and sports science capacity since 1995.

Over the last two decades the importance sports science in AFL team success has been well-documented, given the dynamic pace at which the game is now played the need for management of the players health, well-being and output is paramount.

As a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, David Francis* has advised many aspects of the training and match day preparation of the CFC playing squad to help minimise injury and maximise optimum output; and in the rehabilitation programs of individual players when injury has occurred.

With the Magpies now playing in the 2018 AFL Grand Final, David Francis, alongside other members of the Physioworks Health Group team, including Physiotherapist Ben Shipperd and Soft Tissue Massage Therapist Larissa Cordiano, is focussed on his role to best assist the team to win the 2018 AFL Premiership.

“The injury challenges with the squad this season have been well documented. All at the club have worked extremely hard to ensure we had a squad ready week in, week out to face the challenges of a long hard season; and give ourselves an opportunity to be successful. It is an exciting time for all at the club. And our challenge has 4 long quarters to go!! “

From all the team at Physioworks Health Group we wish David, Ben and Larissa; and all at the Collingwood Football Club, the very best for an injury free and successful AFL Grand Final.
