Sports Medicine

Thankfully, most sports injuries don’t require going under the knife! For this highly-treatable majority, there’s Sports Medicine.

Sports Medicine is a crucial part of our Sports Performance philosophy here at SoCo, and is utilised by us for diagnosis of both complex acute and more long-term injuries, including suspected or confirmed concussion through our affiliation with Dr. Will Duggan in our Concussion Clinic, as well as any of those issues which haven’t responded to other methods of treatment.

Additionally, you’re in the right spot if you’re just looking for advice on improving general health and performance levels.

Sports Medicine Treatments

Here at SoCo we work with a close network of trusted Sports Medicine Physicians when needed to provide a wide variety of treatments ranging from assessment, diagnosis and treatment plans, to corticosteroid injections, to concussion management, to onward referral for appropriate scans and more invasive interventions as needed.
