Returning back onto the pitch after injury

At Hoppers Physio, located in Melbourne’s west, we believe that a person’s wellbeing is a primary concern and we’re driven to get you back into what you love doing most after experiencing events such as injuries and surgeries.

Recently, our physiotherapist Jason supervised one of Werribee City Football Club’s matches and recounts an inspiring story of how a player recovered from such an experience and got back onto the field doing what he loves most!

“It was great to be back down working with the Werribee City Football Club their round 8 clash against Moreland City. The boys have started the season on fire with a 7 game undefeated streak, which comes after the addition of our new remedial massage therapist Daniel ‘magic hands’ Krsticevic, who has taken over training and game day management with the club.

I was pleasantly surprised to bump into an old patient/friend, Dimi Veljanovski, while he was preparing for his game.

Dimi ruptured is ACL in March 2017 whilst playing for the Bees. Dimi had his ACL repaired using a hamstring graft in May 2017 and over the following 12 months, we worked closely together to get him back on the field. Dimi was an exceptional patient and completed his rehabilitation diligently.

It was a really nice moment to sit back and watch him doing his thing on the field, knowing all the hard work that has gone into it”.
