sports Injury professional management
Sports MediCall is a business that was launched last year by the AFL.
The business is designed to provide community sports participants with priority access to elite level sports physicians without the need for a GP referral. The sports physician practices are Epworth Sports & Exercise Medicine Group (Richmond), Lifecare Prahran), Newtown Medical Clinic (Geelong), and Dr Karen Holzer (Richmond).
Please note Sports MediCall is not in competition with your existing physiotherapy/training services. The specific purpose of Sports MediCall is injury diagnosis and medical treatment (more serious injuries), rather than physiotherapy services.
Please find attached a flyer and would appreciate if this information could be printed out and retained in your Club Rooms – and a copy provided to any injured player.
Over 100 community participants use this service during 2013, and enjoyed the same services and specialist care that is available to AFL Players..
