APMA now has two highly trained and vastly experienced Sports Medicine Practitioners.
We are able to provide both an acute sports injury service and a diagnostic service for musculoskeletal problems.
The Centre gives a priority service to acute musculoskeletal injuries including sporting and WorkCover injuries. In most cases a same day appointment can be offered.
Both doctors have worked with National and International sporting teams, managing elite and amateur athletes of all disciplines, from world champions to social sports persons, whether the issues are acute or chronic in nature. Both are extensively involved with the Sports Medicine Community.
We will see all sports and musculoskeletal problems involving any joint or any soft tissue injury. We are happy to see all patients, including athletes, with tendon problems as well as those who are proving to be a diagnostic challenge.
Dr Elizabeth Clisby holds a specialist qualification in Sports and Musculoskeletal medicine from The Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Medicine (a recognised Specialist college in Australia and New Zealand.) Dr Clisby is one of only a handful of specialist Sports Physicians in Adelaide.
Dr Bridget Sawyer has extensive experience as a clinical Sports Doctor and was the President of Sports Medicine South Australia in 2011 and 2012.
