Bosco FC Injury Prevention Resources

Hi Bosco FC,

2024 marks our 25th year of being involved with Bosco FC! As well as being on your sleeve, we’ve also got your back when you get injured. My team of Physios and Exercise Physiologists are obsessed with getting you back doing what you love the most. We’ve spent the off season revising and updating our injury rehab protocols and we’re confident we’ll help you get back on the pitch as soon as possible. Whether you’re a young player with “growing pains” or not so young with a calf tear, we’ve got you covered. Muscle strains, ankle sprains, knee injuries, we’re ready to help you out.

As a Bosco FC player we’d love to help you out with a discounted initial consultation so you can get the right advice. We also offer online booking via our website, or our Facebook page so you don’t have to wait until Monday morning to get your recovery organised.

St George Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Centre at Kogarah runs a Saturday Sports injury clinic from 1-6pm. Parkside Physios are on duty here every month. If you are concerned enough to seek medical care but want to skip the Emergency department at our local hospitals this could be a good option. For a fee you see a Doctor, have access to imaging and immediate management of your injury, including an on-call surgeon. Phone 8537 3100 for an appointment

Hope you have a great 2024 season and don’t need our services!
