Adolescents are going through a lot of changes. Their bodies are changing and their minds are developing in ways they’ve never experienced before. For young athletes, there are extra challenges which other teens won’t experience. Twelve9teen seeks to remove those extra challenges from your worries and get teens back on track. Using a holistic approach to physiotherapy and focusing on the needs of adolescents, we cover a range of services designed to make sure that all our client’s concerns are fixed. Looking at the bigger pictures helps to make sure we’re not just restorative, but preventative too.
Specialist Adolescent Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy
At Twelve9teen we conduct an initial consultation involving a detailed assessment, diagnoses, development of a treatment plan, and a follow-up consultation to begin the treatment process.
The treatment provided are based on the individual findings from the detailed assessment, the current evidence base, and the patient’s long and short health goals.
Importantly we take into consideration the long term impacts on a growing body, tailoring our approach to prevent aches and pains during adulthood.
Second Opinion Service
This involves a longer consultation with Doctor Loretta. We include a detailed treatment plan that you provide to your usual physio. We’ll also carry out reviews over time to see if we need to update your treatment plan.
Sports Specific Screenings
Different sports exist for different passions, and neither do they have the same impact on the body. A cricketer, a football player, and a netballer will all have different needs in their physiotherapy treatments.
We make sure to take the kinds of sports your teen plays into consideration while we set up your plan, maximising healing and preventative care options.
If your teen is thinking of changing sports, we can even reasses what their new needs will be and re-tailor their treatment plan to suit their new movements.
The Competitive Edge ACL Program
An ACL prehab package. Your teen will get back on their feet faster with less pain when they already have an ACL injury. Better yet, your teen can learn preventative techniques and training to avoid ACL injury while in the game.
ACL injuries can take many months to acheive recovery so knowing how to prevent them can save many valuable months of their young lives that would have been lost in intensive recovery.
Leader of the Pack Program
An off-season program that aims to improve your teen’s confidence and leadership skills. Prepare them for becoming a great team captain, a good team player, and set them up with skills for life as they grow older.
Injury Prevention Programs
Prevention is the best medicine. The best healing is never damaging the joint in the first place. As such, not only are we accredited in the Netball Knee Program, but also work with valuable information from other fields like the FIFA 11+ Program, the Footy First Program, and the Rugby Union Activate Program.
Injury Prevention will be a life changer as a teen grows up and becomes an adult. Old injuries that never healed properly can be very damaging to mental and physical health as we grow older. Nip it in the bud with preventative care.
Telehealth/Physio via Video
Going on holiday? Your teen goes to boarding school and can’t come into the office? Live outside of Queensland? Want a second opinion from any treating physiotherapist in the world?
At Twelve9teen we believe that location should never be a barrier to sport, and offer telehealth services to all our clients upon request.
On-Field Sports Coverage
Are you running a sports day at your local school? Organising a sporting event and want onsite support for all players?
Contact us for requests into On-Field Sports Coverage and never have a single teen go at risk of injury on the field again.
In order to be a hollistic practise, we can’t focus solely on physio. That’s why our clinic also hosts a sports physician, an orthopaedic surgeon, a podiatrist, exercise physiologists, sports psychologist, and even more.
Not only that, but our clinic is within a medical precinct that includes radiology, general practise, pharmacy, pathology, and more.
Twelve9teen Sports Physiotherapy is a one-stop sports medicine hub for all your family’s needs.
