VIS tele-health servicing for Sports Medicine and Physiotherapy

The Victorian Institute of Sport remains committed to servicing our athletes and have started to implement remote service delivery and support.

Athletes are being provided training programs to undertake at home and where possible portable training equipment is being made available to enable them to continue their conditioning and fitness.

In this article you will find information about how the VIS Sports Medicine and Physiotherapy Team will continue to operate under the new circumstances.

VIS Sports Medicine

The VIS Sports Medicine service will continue to be offered as a tele-health service. Any VIS athlete needing to see a doctor for a sport or training related issue can ring the VIS reception (9425 0000) and make an appointment with one of our VIS doctors.

The athlete will be sent an email link for the video-conference which they can then activate at the appointment time and consult with their VIS Sports Medicine doctor.

Session times are available from Monday through to Friday.

VIS Physiotherapy

The general VIS physiotherapy service will be operating in the same way as the Sports Medicine service – a phone call to reception to make an appointment time with a unique video meeting link then emailed to the athlete.

Session times are available from Monday through to Friday.

Sport Programs that engage their own physiotherapist(s) have some different systems in place. These sports are: Athletics, Diving, Golf, Hockey (Men’s and Women’s), Netball, Rowing, Sailing, Swimming and Winter Sport.

All other sports/athletes should access physiotherapy via VIS Reception (9425 0000).
