Physio4athletes have been the physiotherapy providers for the Racing Victoria Apprentice Jockey program for over 7 years. This is an exciting new field for Sports Physiotherapy. We have developed a musculo-skeletal assessment protocol specific to the demands of race riding. We educate apprentice jockeys regarding management of their bodies and any injuries that they may sustain throughout their careers. We work closely with the apprentice jockey coaches to assist Apprentice jockeys to 'hold' their ideal race riding position.
Through this unique industry experience, our staff have developed an in depth understanding of the demands of this rigorous sport and we aim to use this knowledge in the rehabilitation of all jockey and track work riding injuries.
