Watsonia Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates
Lower plenty Football Club and our partner Watsonia Physiotherapy have joined together to help Sam with his ACL Reconstruction Rehab. Sam underwent his ACL reconstruction on the 11th of September after injuring his knee against North Heidelberg in round 9 this year. He first attended Watsonia Physiotherapy on October 30 and has attended the clinic twice a week since, working with and his physiotherapist Michael Mazzocato a former Research junior player, who also helped manage our injury list throughout 2017.
At the clinic Michael and Sam have been focusing on his ability to straighten his knee as well as regaining the strength and activation in his right quadriceps. At his recent review Sam’s surgeon is happy with his progress and is supportive of an increase in his rehab. Sam will be performing a home program as well as utilising the Pilates gym at the Watsonia Physiotherapy clinic as he increases his rehab.
Sam is very appreciative of the assistance that the club and Watsonia Physiotherapy have provided to help facilitate his rehab in order to get him back on the track with his Bears team mates.
We will be providing you with updates of Sam’s progress throughout the summer. If you or a family member require physiotherapy assistance, our partners at Watsonia Physiotherapy offer discounts for the Lower Plenty Football Club community which is a bonus on top of the first class care provided by them.
Please call Michael at the clinic on 9434 3088 if you require any physio related care and return the support they offer to us.
