A custom Bike Fit is the key to better performance

Riders often compromise their position on the bike to reduce risk of injury and improve comfort. This can affect both power production and aerodynamics. If you want to be comfortable, injury free, and as fast as possible, a BaiMed custom Bike Fit can help you take your cycling to the next level.

Our physiotherapists combine a detailed understanding of cycling biomechanics and human physiology with a passion for the sport, and take the time to identify any areas that may be limiting your performance. Then make the right modifications to you, the bike (or a combination of both) to ensure you achieve your performance goals.

Improve times and reduce injury

Swimming is a unique sport that takes place against the resistance of fluid instead of air. The ability of an athlete to maintain a hydrodynamic position in the water has a significant impact on performance.

A BaiMed Swim Screening can identify any underlying physical issues, restrictions or weaknesses that could be contributing to particular technique issues, and flag potential for injury. Our experienced physiotherapists will develop a customised plan that improves your strength, power, mobility and durability, ultimately resulting in better performance.

Injury/Condition Specific Programs

At the BaiMed Performance Centre we have designed a range of programs to treat specific conditions. From a thorough assessment to hands-on therapies and strengthening programs, we use our expertise to get you back to peak performance as fast as possible.

Return to performance after ACL Injury

Injury to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (aka the ACL) is one of the most common knee injuries we see at BaiMed Performance Centre. Usually caused by a non-contact pivoting injury in sports like football, netball, basketball, tennis, and gymnastics, ACL injury can happen easily, with women around six times more likely to experience it than men.

More serious ACL injuries result in surgery, with around 400,000 ACL reconstructions conducted each year globally. Unfortunately, reinjury rates are still very high for people returning to competitive sport

We have strong evidence that shows ACL reinjury can be prevented through a specific exercise program by a quailified practitioner. And adherence to a rehabilitation program gives a massive 82% success rate for athletes returning to sport.

At BaiMed we manage our ACL patients from injury back to the level of performance that they were before injury. Our philosophy is not just “return to play”, but “return to perform”. We monitor you the whole way from Physio table back to sporting field, to ensure you have the best chance of a full recovery.

BaiMed ACL Research Project: We are in the early stages of an exciting research project looking at risk factors for first time and recurrent ACL injuries. More news to come.

Does your child suffer knee or heel pain?

Growth-related pain, often called ‘growing pains’ is relatively common in young people, but a child limping with heel or knee pain is definitely not normal. This type of pain can often be associated with Osgood-Schlatter Disease at the knee and Sever’s Disease at the heel, and correct management can avoid any long-term issues associated with leaving it untreated.

The team at BaiMed has the experience to thoroughly assess and determine the stage of your child’s injury, and achieve the best possible outcome through both treatment and education. If possible, we aim to keep the child playing their chosen sport throughout. The important thing is not to delay treatment.

Hamstring Program

Hamstring injuries account for up to 25% of all injuries in contact sports like soccer, netball and rugby league, and are responsible for the most lost game time in the AFL. With AIS-developed cutting-edge equipment to assess and monitor hamstring strength, the BaiMed Performance Centre is THE hamstring centre in the Illawarra.

With a 31% injury reoccurrence rate, latest evidence supports the early intervention of strength training to limit the likelihood of re-injury. The comprehensive hamstring assessment conducted by the BaiMed Performance team encompasses specific hamstring strength parameters while considering running mechanics, ground contact time and force production qualities across both limbs.

Ensure optimal recovery and return to your sport quicker

Tendons can be easily injured through repetitive use or overstretching. They can also be stubborn to heal. That’s why at BaiMed Performance Centre we combine high level experience with evidence-based treatment to deliver a complete treatment package.

Previously referred to as tendonitis, but now known as a tendinopathy, tendon pain is often associated with areas such as the Achilles, patella, elbow, shoulder and hamstring. Current research supports the need for early physiotherapy treatment to ensure optimal recovery and return to your chosen sport/activity and avoid long term problems.

It’s a common misconception that tendon pain requires rest. To the contrary, this de-loads the tendon and increases the length of recovery time. The trick

is finding the correct level of activity for you. Let the experienced physiotherapists at BaiMed provide you with an individualised approach to your tendon recovery and successful return to sport or activity.
