We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership that will greatly benefit our club members. During the off-season, we’ve joined forces with Ballarat Sports Medicine (BSM), the premier Sports Medicine group in the region.
Senior BSM physiotherapist, Simon Lewis, will be on hand to provide dedicated support to our senior footballers and netballers. BSM’s comprehensive clinic services, including Sports Physicians, Physios, and Exercise Physiologists, boast extensive AFL and VFL experience, making them the exclusive specialist Sports Medicine clinic in the Ballarat area.
As part of our partnership, Ballarat Sports Medicine extends a warm welcome to all players, juniors, seniors, footballers, netballers, and families to attend their Acute Sports Injury Clinic every Monday from 5 pm. If you have a referral letter from your GP or another physio, please bring it along. Don’t worry if you don’t have one – BSM can efficiently arrange x-rays and other scans, usually within a day or two. If you’ve had previous scans, they can likely access them online right away.
Beyond the Monday clinic, BSM operates from Monday to Friday, with alternate Saturday mornings available. Bookings can be made online at https://appointments.
ballaratosm.com.auor by phone at 5332 2969. With rapid access to Ballarat’s largest group of specialist orthopaedic surgeons and ample on-site parking, BSM makes top-notch sports medicine easily accessible.
Additionally, BSM will conduct an injury prevention session just before the season kicks off, focusing on ACL prevention and concussion management for our female participants.
This presents an incredible opportunity for our club members and families to access premier sports medicine right in our own backyard. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks. Should you have any queries in the meantime, please feel free to give me a call.
