Get In Touch

The first step to rehabilitation is understanding the injury. Our physios will take the time to learn how it occurred and what aggravates it. During our initial consultation, we’ll perform manual tests to assess your movement patterns, posture, muscle strength, and imbalances.

Once we’ve correctly diagnosed the root of your injury, our basketball physiotherapists will develop a rehabilitation program tailored specifically for you. And by the end of treatment, you will have regained your range of motion, muscle strength and stability. You’ll also have the tools you need to prevent future injuries.

Julius explained my internally rotated shoulder with clear and easy explanations and provided effective exercises. His guidance not only healed my injury but also improved my strength significantly. I highly recommend Solidus Health and Strength for anyone seeking expert physical therapy.

I can't recommend Solidus enough! As someone who regularly practices jiujitsu, I've had my fair share of injuries.After trying various treatments with little success, I finally found Solidus.Julius worked wonders on my shoulders, and I am now pain-free and back to training at full capacity. His expertise and attention to detail are truly unmatched. If you're dealing with any sports-related injuries, do yourself a favor and visit Julius.

Have seen Daryl for a few physio sessions and he has helped me understand a lot more on areas I've needed improvement on especially since I keep injuring myself. Daryl is very professional and takes a lot of care in drafting up training plans in which he sends you detailed instructions of after your session. He is also very clear and friendly throughout, super easy to communicate with and provides lots of useful information.

After one Myotherapy session with Julius I was actually able to move freely after a back sprain. He was informative and helped me to understand how I'd injured myself, what to do to recover and how to strengthen and use my body again with confidence. Highly recommend!

Cant recommend Solidus enough. Daryl starts with a thorough assessment to pin point the root cause of any issues, before manual therapy and then tailors an individual exercise plan, provides training advice and ergonomic advice that corrects the issue long term. I was able to overcome a long term injury and excel in training because of Daryl's expertise. It is easy to book an appointment and the clinic is very flexible. Daryl and the team at Solidus genuinely care about an individuals well being.

I've had a number of sessions with Daryl at Solidus for a shoulder issue. Daryl is friendly and approachable, has been patient with my inconsistency, and is super-flexible/adaptable, adjusting my activity and our sessions according to the feedback I have given and what suits my lifestyle. I've found him to be very responsive, and efficient in sending a summary of the exercises we've worked through, including YouTube vids, which is super helpful. Massive bonus - his massages as part of therapy are top notch, he knows exactly where to dig in and is great at explaining what he is doing where and why. Always feel great after a session with Daryl - very highly recommended.

I can't recommend enough. I sprained my back to the point walking to the bathroom, bringing tears to my eyes.I saw Daryl today, and it's now a dull ache I can manage. I can't thank him enough. As a working mum, I can't afford to much downtime. The exercise he gave me are very practical to fit in my day.

Always diligent in both treatment and rehab recommendation.I always walk out feeling like I’ve been worked on, but not assaulted like I’ve had with other myotherapists, and as an athlete I’ve never been told not to do an exercise, instead given ways to modify it to work through the injury rather than the typical lazy advice to just stop moving until something heals fully.I also send my own clients here and am kept updated with information on how to conduct sessions around their injuries too.

I have been a competition prep & strength coach for many years with a number of my own issues and I have never found a more knowledgeable and competent team than Solidus. Their ability to not only assess and prescribe corrective exercises but their ability to understand and relate to top end athletes is second to none. I have had hip issues for many years and couldn't sumo deadlift my way out of a paper bag. Today I pulled 80kg for 3 with no hip pain at all. In fact it actually feels better after the doing it. That is a huge accomplishment for me. It can only get better from here. I cannot thank them enough ❤️

These guys are absolutely VITAL to maintaining my health. Super informative, and super supportive. I love that my recovery is not simply based on being treated, it's checking in with me between treatments as well as communicating with my Coach so that my maintenance is ongoing and proactive and not simply when I'm feeling sore.

Julius is always able to fix up any issues I run into from heavy and hard training. Beyond that the knowledge of the guys at Solidus is unmatched. Even small cueing adjustments to the way I lift from recommendations from Julius has helped me engage with the working muscles far more effectively.Could not recommended more highly!

It was my very first time to see a Myotheraphy for my shoulder that was sore almost two months ago. I was amazed how good Julius was and he managed to fix my shoulder. I can now lift my arm up high with not much pain. Also, Julius was great explaining how my muscles and my body works together so that I don’t put so much pressure on my shoulders. He’s also given me exercises to do to strengthen my shoulders, my back and my posture. I highly recommended Solidus Health in Clayton. Thank you Julius

I saw Julius for my golfers and tennis elbow, he was very knowledgeable and helped me recognise the ways I was putting stress on my elbow before I started on any recovery exercises. Both Darryl and Julius are great guys who also provided a very friendly and great learning environment for son during his work experience. I would highly recommend the Solidus team for genuine health care and support. Thank you Julius!

I have been getting treatment from Daryl for almost 2 years now and can say that he is the best physio / allied health professional that I have ever seen.I suffer from chronic pain, and the targeted combination of treatment and strength and conditioning programs provided have enabled me to go from quite limited to daily exercise that is very physical, ranging from gym strength work to running to ninjawarrior!After many other experiences where consultants treat the symptoms not the cause, Daryl is a master at getting to the root cause. He is also very patient and carefully explains everything to ensure a complete understanding.I can't recommend Daryl highly enough!!

I attended my initial assessment with Julius, and have to say it was an inspirational experience. Not only did he greet me at the gym entrance, but he expressed genuine compassion, and empathy towards my situation.Julius was immediately able to identify my issues, and assured me that by implementing the right cues I would be able to minimise pain, and hence injury, rectify my form and improve my overall performance.Above-all, he is incredibly intuitive, and couldn’t believe I met a person who shared the same level of knowledge and passion for philosophy like me.I highly recommend his services to anyone who has been through the monotonous, and exhausting cycle of seeing multiples providers and finding themselves back at square one.Looking forward to my next session.

These guys are the real deal - by far the best health and conditioning team I’ve ever seen in Melbourne. I’m a regular gym goer and runner and these guys always get me moving through any niggles and have me back in the gym and feeling better in no time. The strength program I’ve been following for my knee over the past few months has meant I’m pain free and feeling supreme confidence in my body for the first time in a long time. A must for any strength or conditioning athlete, whether you’re a weekend warrior or something more serious.

Great experience at Solidus. Came to Daryl with an unknown glute/hip issue from powerlifting that I had been nursing. He was able to diagnose and prescribe rehab exercises all within a one hour consult. After implementing these rehab exercises this hip injury went away almost instantly within 1-2 sessions. During this time I had also picked up a shoulder niggle to which Daryl was able to fit me in his schedule almost straight away and prescribe me rehab exercises to which this shoulder niggle went away over 1-2 sessions. His ability to coach exercises and explain to the patient what is happening was great. Definitely recommend.

I have been seeing Julius for a few years now and I have never looked back! He is so knowledgeable, has great attention to detail and is just a lovely person in general.I do bodybuilding and he always fixes any injuries through a dual approach:remedial therapy AND training cues/ adjustments. Everyone in the team is super nice and such great vibes. I recommend Solidus to all my friends and everyone that’s ever been loves them and is now one of their regulars.

FAQs

Is physiotherapy good for athletes?

Physiotherapy is an excellent treatment option for athletes suffering from aches, nagging injuries and general wear and tear. In addition to rehabbing acute and chronic injuries, our treatment will help you maintain optimal physical condition and prevent injuries from occurring. Our therapists are experienced in treating athletes of all levels and can create a rehabilitation program that is tailored specifically for you.

What is the most common injury in basketball?

Ankle sprains are the most common injury, whether you’re a high school player or a seasoned professional. Because basketball involves sudden changes in direction and explosive jumping, it’s not surprising that ankle injuries are so common. However, with the right physiotherapy treatment and adequate rest, you can quickly heal most ankle sprains.

When should I see a basketball physio?

If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort while playing basketball or recently suffered an injury, it’s best to see a physiotherapist as soon as possible. Waiting too long to seek treatment, or continuing to play can prolong the healing process, but it can also lead to further injury.

How do you treat a basketball injury?

After you’ve injured yourself, you can perform RICE: rest, ice, compression and elevation. Once the initial swelling has subsided, our physiotherapists will assess and treat your injury with a combination of hands-on therapy, targeted exercises and advice on injury prevention

Why choose Solidus?

While you could take a break from basketball and let your injury heal, you may be susceptible to reinjury if it’s not adequately rehabilitated. At Solidus, we incorporate techniques that will speed up recovery and help you become injury resilient and a better athlete overall. By correcting muscle weaknesses, posture, and poor technique, you’ll eventually become a more explosive and efficient player on the court.
