The Eastern Football League, in conjunction with five leading medical providers, are excited about bringing EFL players an injury care program unrivalled in community sport.
Through Lifecare, Vermont Urgent Care, Capital Radiology, Sports Med Biologic and Orthopaedic Specialists Melbourne, Complete Injury Care creates a level of expert care for EFL players usually reserved for those at the elite level.
Lifecare is a physiotherapy and sports medicine provider which has had a relationship with the EFL for over 25 years.
Vermont Urgent Care is a walk-in doctors surgery open on Saturday afternoons and Sundays to provide immediate care to injured players without waiting for hours at the public hospital or paying significant money before you walk in the door at a private hospital.
Capital Radiology provides the full range of radiology services such as x-ray, CT scans and MRI, with quality care and communication with patients and other medical professionals.
Sports Med Biologic is a sports medical clinic based in Box Hill of which the doctors all have experience at the elite level of sport, mostly with AFL clubs, and will provide expert concussion care, both pre-screening and post-injury care.
And Orthopaedic Specialists Melbourne will help provide quick access to expert orthopaedic services from internationally-trained and highly-regarded surgeons.
Concussion is understandably, an important topic for our industry. It’s an area research has shown most local GPs aren’t comfortable dealing with, and that as an industry is an area we need to be cognisant of providing the best level of care. Through this program and our access to the level of care available at Sports Med Biologic, this is possible.
