Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at SMC Sports Therapy is based on a holistic approach where we see our patients as individuals and view the person as a whole. Whatever your needs, our detailed assessment process will ensure that we identify the cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms.

For example, when we assess someone with a knee problem, we know that a knee is not just one structure that operates on its own; it is a knee that functions as part of the whole individual. A problem with your knee can affect your back, hip and ankle, and could also be preventing you from doing many different things that you otherwise would like to be doing – everything from daily activities to more strenuous sporting endeavours.

At SMC Sports Therapy, we look outside the box to try and find the root cause of the problem. Assessing a knee may involve looking at structures above and below like the hip, back and ankle, as well as assessing the way you move such as walking, running and other movement patterns. To fully understand your knee problem, it is important to understand your posture, your fitness and activity levels, your training patterns, your motivation, your footwear and any unique requirements of your sport.

We believe that education about your problem enables a better understanding of the problem and will ultimately ensure your recovery is better and more complete. We aim to empower you to manage your own condition and to ensure that you do not become reliant on therapy.
