Foot-Leg Health and Well Being Solutions
Epidemiology studies indicate the lower limb accounts for 30%-40% of injury. Lower limb health fund claims in 2005, accounted for in-excess of 42% of all claims (Medibank Private). Additionally, the majority of lower limb injuries are overuse (80%) due to poor technique, overuse and poor footwear habits.
The results are not surprising given that most exercise regimes are weight bearing, requiring the lower limb linkage (feet, ankles, knees and legs). South Sydney Sports Medicine Centre has vast experience in the treatment of athletic and exercise related sports injuries applying knowledge from 15 years of professional service to professional sporting teams (Sydney Swans AFL, Sydney Roosters, NRL, NSW Cricket, and International Olympic Committee sanctioned events).
