After a suspected ACL injury & being on crutches for a few weeks, I decided to bite the bullet and see the team at Freedom Sport Medicine. Best decision ever! Ross was able to get me walking after the first session, I got my independence and freedom back while awaiting surgery. From the first visit the Team have been so supportive through the ups and downs both physically and mentally that come with injuries and have been able to get me on a path back to playing sport. Highly recommended the entire Team at Freedom
Not your standard partice.Arrived skeptical from a history of physios hooking me up to electrodes and just being provided stretches while they see three patients at once.Enter Freedom sports, who sat me down, listened to my problems and why I wanted to be there not why I needed to be there. From that moment a program was designed for my body with levels to achieve. 10 weeks later my original issues are improved, posture is better and energy is lifted with noticeable improvments in strength and mobility.A program designed for you to follow, a new facility that is welcoming from the front desk to staff to the owner himself. Staff seem to take their clients accountability at the for front and make sure for the 30-45 minutes, you are the priority.Keep it up and keep coming back.
An excellent service provided by the Freedom Sports team. The support & encouragement given along with a great program have enabled me to get back on track. I have gone from having daily pain in my knee to only now and again. I expect improvement to continue with the exercise tools I have been given. Thank you, Brendan & Ross! Very happy with the results!Highly recommended.
Awesome professional experience that never gives up and always seeks to support and improve with a very positive outlook . Thankyou Ross for all your help along this journey to freedom from pain to a new beggining and my life’s dream
Ross and the crew are great. No matter who is manning the front desk, you'll always get a warm welcome. The team are great, prepared and knowledgeable they explain things clearly and keep you motivated to achieve your goals. I trust them l, they've helped me rehab from 3 surgeries and have had great results getting back to sport. I've been a client for years and recommend them to anyone.
I cant recommend Freedom Sports Medicine enought. I have never had a physio as good as Daniel, he is knowledgeable, kind and caring. Daniel has provided me with excellent therapies and exercises while I recover from my injury and while supporting my life style and my love for gym work and fitness. Under Daniel's care I have noticed massive improvements not only with my shoulder, arm and hand but my performance at the gym where Im lifting heavier than I did before I was injured. Daniel has a real commitment to ensure I understand my treatment and the steps that are required to achieve a totall recovery.
The whole team here is incredible. Ross and Brendan helped explain what was wrong and had such a positive outlook on my options from the get go. The detail in the plan moving forward was amazing and helped me stay focused throughout. Brendan has been awesome with our regular check ups, guiding and changing things as they needed to be. I went from a specialist telling me I’d need spinal fusion in order to fix my issue to Brendan and the team rebuilding me to the point of being able to run again. No surgery needed!
Grateful for the team at FSM for supporting my ankle injury. The plan provided was clear, achievable and meaningful. I’m feeling confident and ready for the next chapter. Thanks Daniel for your amazing support!
I came to Freedom sports because they helped my partner recover strongly from her ACL years ago. I ruptured my patella during a footy season and knew Ross was the man to see. Today its been 9 months and I’ve made a full recovery and back to playing footy.Appreciate everything they have done!!
It has been a wonderful experience at Freedom sports medicine. I could barely move my shoulder. Ross massaged and designed a program that has made my arm mobile and it doesn’t hurt anymore.Fantastic job Ross!!
I had partial tear to my acl freedom sports has been amazing with the progression in getting me walking and being able to do things like normal again I'm extremely satisfied with the help I have received thankyou so very much for your help very much appreciated
I've been coming to see Ross for the best part of a decade. When I first saw him, he was able to identify a mystery injury that I had, that others couldn't and I haven't looked back since. Ross and the team at Freedom sports are extremely dedicated to helping their clients. Everyone is extremely professional and friendly, from Ross, to other physio's and their receptionist staff. The culture is amazing and the staff never make you feel like you're asking a silly question.The new location in Mooroolbark, particularly at the front desk, will make you feel like you're walking into a day spa. It's a relaxing, calm and warm environment, which are the characteristics that you need when you're depending on gaining treatment. There has never been an occasion where I walked out feeling worse than I did when I walked in.I highly recommend!
I came in during lockdown with pain in my neck and upper back due to too much Zoom and online fitness classes.I worked with Ross on firstly reducing pain and then increasing strength.My program was well described with steps for me to achieve pain free neck.I heartily recommend Freedom Sports Medicine in helping me become pain free with the strength to go through my daily life.
I highly recommend Ross at Freedom sports medicine. I have seen many specialists in the past to achieve a pain free day. After seeing Ross for 12 months he was the key that unlocked my pain. With rehabilitation, commitment and Ross as my Physiotherapist it was all due to Freedom. A perfect name to call their business because that's exactly how I feel right now. Freedom! no more nagging pain.Thanks Ross and Staff!
After attending many different practitioners I went to Freedom where Ross did a full analysis of all of my scans. A treatment program was designed and followed and I feel 100% compared to the worn out 40 yr old with crippling hip pain. Even after the first treatment I felt relief. Highly highly recommend but hope I won’t be back as the program has given me the tools to keep strong. Thanks Freedom
I have had the benefit of Ross and his expert approach to two running related injuries that were resolved without surgery. Ross was holistic in his approach, was realistic in his appraisal and time for recovery and supported me with achievable progression. Thanks team!
Highly recommended! I had severe lower back pain that affected my everyday life, but it's so much better now thanks to Ross and his thorough treatment plan. Thank you Ross and the team, good luck at your new location :)
Freedom Sports Medicine is definitely a place to visit. I’ve being seeing Ross for many years now with a variety of different injuries. He has always been able to figure out the issue, create a plan to get me back on the court and then given me exercises to strengthen and prevent it from happening again. Freedoms staff have the same energy as Ross they are super friendly, encouraging and positive. You will always leave feeling good and informed about the road ahead!
Severe tension headache for over a week prompted me to see physio Ross Kinsella. He was able to confidently diagnose the issue and provide a treatment plan - in addition to relief of my symptoms within 24 hours. I highly recommend this practice and Ross.
A very high quality place of practice. The physio was very thorough with his treatment plan and transparent with the intended outcome. The therapy provided not only resolved my presenting issue of lower back pain but also equipped me with valuable knowledge on what to do should an injury reoccur. Highly recommend this clinic to anyone searching for a caring practitioner that is capable of preparing a recovery plan that is holistic and empowering in nature.
Thanks Freedom and especially Ross for leading me through the process to recovery. I feel so much better and more confident now to continue an active lifestyle free from discomfort and pain.Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Freedom Sports Medicine to anyone in need.😄👍
Always know that I am going to get great service and the help that I really need for my body. I don't think that I would be able to keep doing the physical work that I do without Ross and his team. Many thanks. Santo.
Ross & the team at Freedom Sports Medicine are fantastic! I've unfortunately had two hip operations for torn cartilage and bone shaving (left and right hips) and both times Freedom Sports Medicine has helped on the road to full recovery. Ross is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, professional and without his support rehab wouldn't have been as easy. Thanks!
Highly recommend Freedom Sports Medicine. I have personally been seeing Ross for years now and cannot speak highly enough of his expertise and knowledge in his field. Such a positive attitude as well! He has really helped me with my back, neck, and shoulder issues I’ve had.
Ross and the team at freedom have been such an amazing support for our family with everyone of us seeing the team for various needs. They have been particularly great during a difficult time following back surgery and I have had such confidence and comfort in them assisting me in the ups and downs of ongoing rehab and recovery. Very flexible, understanding and encouraging.
Ross and Jess were awesome in initial diagnosis and confirmed upon MRI. An unusual and rare injury diagnosed promptly and proficiently. Follow up sessions were planned out so my goals were explored and accommodated through appropriate stretching and recovery, moderating into a suitable fitness program to promote best recovery. Five weeks later, I have made progress and achieving ranges of movement which were not previously possible. The pain has been eliminated and set me up to restore my pre injury fitness routine. I can now lift without discomfort and look forward to the next appointment in a month.
Ross is fantastic. He is the first physio to actually eliminate my hip pain and he knew exactly the cause and treats fast and effectively. I had begun to lose hope in relieving my chronic pain and he was able to diagnose me and take it away. Can’t rave about him enough. He is such a positive, happy influence and you leave feeling more energised and motivated to live a happy healthy life. Thanks to the team and their great work at Freedom Sports Medicine!
Been seeing Ross on and off for years for a variety of injuries/issues. He has helped me to overcome my injuries every time. He is always my first call when I have an injury, even before my doctor. I can’t thank him or recommend him enough.
I play a fair bit of sport and in my mid 60's. Have attended the clinic for several different injuries / issues the most severe being a torn plantar facia. Ross developed a rehab program that has resulted in a full recovery for this injury - in fact it's stronger now. Have full confidence in the team
I Would highly recommend this clinic, as Ross,lovely staff,and practitioners were kind, courteous, and dealt with all my inquiries in a professional manner.Received treatment by Ross for my neck injury. Ross amazing skills and advised exercises that i could do from home Bring me back the normal activities and Gym routine . Clinic staff handled all the necessary paperwork and documentation and informed me well in advanced of anything I needed.Would definitely be coming back here.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️For you Ross and Amazing TeamRamin
I honestly couldn’t recommend Freedom Sports Medicine enough! Ross has helped me through my journey and all of the ups and downs! Ross and Sophia have really made me feel like I am part of a family and I will be forever grateful of Ross’s continued belief in me and being about the turn my negative mindset about my osteopenia diagnosis into a positive mindset! Two years since my diagnosis and I have been actively working with Ross to ensure my bones don’t get worse and today I got an updated scan and somehow Ross’s hard work has increased my bone density by 4.4% with strength and conditioning!! With Ross’s mindset, I was able to achieve something I never thought was possible and cannot wait for what the next two years brings! Thank you so much Ross and Sophia!
I have known Ross Kinsella for many years now and followed him from his early days starting out as a physiotherapist to the opening of his own practice, Freedom Sports Medicine.His extensive knowledge, thorough systematic approach, and comforting nature have always been so reassuring in my injury and surgery rehabilitation.In life it is essential to surround yourself with genuine natures, highly skilled people to look after you and your family. Ross and his team at Freedom Sports Medicine are to be commended for the holistic approach to health services and the care that they provide; to not just high-level athletes but to all in the community.For anyone wanting to go to the next level with their mind and body health or find an answer to a long term pain issue, I thoroughly recommend Freedom Sports Medicine to have as part of your life team.Anthony
Ross from Freedom Sports Medicine has helped me recover from an injury that had been plaguing me for over a year. I have now completely recovered from this and able to fully get back to my Crossfit training. Ross is very knowledgable and professional and I highly recommend him for treatment of sports injuries.
i have just completed my six week glad program with Freedom sports, under Ross, i can not begin to tell you the difference in my problem, i had a doubletear in my Meniscus and after an arthroscope by recovery was very slow and painful, until i was referred to Ross, i now have very little pain in my knee and hip, i am sleeping better and not taking as much medication his program is one i can highly recommend
Thank you to the team at Freedom Sports Medicine! I was amazed by your professionalism and skill. My knee had been hurting for five months when I first met Ross and Jess. It had happened before, but the pain had usually gone away after a week or two. Not this time, and it turned out I had a minuscular tear. After the diagnosis, I’ve been treated by Jess over the last 12-13 weeks to progressively improve the mobility and strength needed to support my knee. Today was my last appointment. Jess experience and knowing when to progress in my program have helped me get back into running and hopefully back into Obstacle Course Racing again soon. I can strongly recommend Jess, Ross and the team at Freedom Sports Medicine!
I have been having treatment from the awesome Jess Black at the Freedom Sports Medicine Centre in Ringwood for the past 4 months for an old elbow injury. Four months later and I am back out surfing better than ever and I have received a great strengthening and conditioning program which I am continuing to use to build core strength and flexibility. Thanks to Ross, Jess, Sophia and the amazing team at Freedom Sports Medicine.
Couldn’t recommend Jess enough ! She has help me be pain free and back to playing netball and enjoying life more and Always love how supportive she is and tailors strength work and exercise to my needs.Thank you Jess x
We came across Freedom Sports Medicine 5 years ago when our son's Conditioning/Physio through his Elite Development Basketball program was leaving the program and referred Ross to continue our son's Strength and Conditioning to his active sport schedule. Since then the whole team at Freedom Sports Medicine has also attended to our son's podiatry (both orthotics and sport podiatry), myotherapy for muscular stiffness and physiotherapy for injury needs and haven't looked back. They attend our 12yr daughter's dysplasia of the hips and help strengthening and monitoring her hips with her visits and operations RCH over the last 5 years with positive and simple instructions that she feels involved in her recovery and understanding every step. My own experience with the team I cannot fault. Their structured care plan identified MY process up front and enabled MY treatment to be attended to by any team member to help suit MY schedule and educated ME about my injury and how the required rehabilitation is going to benefit ME. This format is absolutely brilliant to make ME accountable for my recovery. Following the plan and doing the rehab work avoided injections. They are the best detectives working out why and resolving! Thank you Freedom Sports Medicine!!!!!!!
Ross, Sophia and the team are amazing. We can't thank them enough for getting our family through some really tough times with some serious injuries. Ross's patience, tenacity, skill and professionalism always shine through.
Myself, my husband and teenage son have been attending Freedom Sports Medicine on a regular basis for a few years now. Ross and his team are outstanding. Our soreness and or injuries are always pin pointed, well explained causes and very detailed management strategies for improvement. Also our teenage son who plays a lot of soccer is currently seeing Ross for strength and conditioning training to improve his fitness and strength for game performance.
Could not reccomend FSM more highly!I had almost 9 months of seeing doctors and other specialists trying to get a diagnosis from an injury I sustained. First visit to FSM we had a suspected diagnosis and second visit we had a confirmed diagnosis and treatment plan - all because they heard what was being said and did further investigations.The staff are supportive, knowledgeable and friendly.
The team at freedom sports Medicine have been excellent in guiding me through recovery and getting me back into the sport I love. I have had nothing but an excellent experience at Freedom, as they put in lots of care and hard work into providing the best service!!
I highly recommended Jess Black at Freedom Sports Medicine. After being hit by a car on my bicycle doing ~50 km/h, I sustained injuries and experienced pain and discomfort in my hip, lower back and glute. After first seeking treatment elsewhere, with limited success, I found Freedom Sports Medicine and was lucky enough to have been treated by Jess on a ~6-8 week program. Jess is extremely professional, knowledgeable, patient and took time to explain and answers questions regarding the treatment. I am extremely grateful to Jess and the team :)
I came into Freedom a few months ago with some hip and shoulder issues, and over that time the guys there have been so great in helping me get back on track. Everyone there is friendly and professional. Would highly recommend.
I saw Ross for the last 6 month of my ACL rehab as i found myself to be mentally and physically trapped along my journey. As a high level athlete playing in the Victorian Netball Bupa League i have had many experiences with different physiotherapists. Ross is amazing at what he does and he is extremely passionate and motivating! The customer rappeur the Ross includes is second to none as i found myself leaving with a smile on my face feeling every time. I HIGHLY recommenced FSM and Ross for helping and guiding me through a very trying time in sporting career!
I’m recovering from a third reconstruction on my shoulder and also a torn ACL and meniscus, I have been to 4 different clinics and finally tried freedom out, and they are by far the best out of them all.James janez has taken on my issues and after seeing him for 4 weeks, my body is finally starting to feel great again after 6 years of constant pain and annoying niggles in my joints, James takes pride in his profession and really cares about what you want to achieve in your future.I want nothing more then to play football next year and James is helping me every step of the way, getting me strong and ready for me to return, I recommend anyone with any sort of injury to go see this guy, he’s the best
Had a coupla issues with my back and was struggling to work went in and saw James and he was able to get me back to work quick and also taught me a plethora of knowledge about my back and rest of my body cheers guys!
Have had a great experience at Freedom Sports Medicine for my back pain with physio James Jansz!James has an incredibly holistic and patient-centred approach to physiotherapy and wellness which has significantly helped me manage my back pain. Couldn’t recommend enough!
3 years ago I had an ongoing knee tendon injury that another physio clinic had given up on, so a friend recommended I see Ross at Freedom Sports. Ross's expertise provided positivity, persistence and a plan for recovery. Since then my body has needed Ross's guidance to overcome a torn meniscus and a hip bursitis. Ross understands my personal need to keep on running and equips and empowers my body to be strong so I can smile while I run.
I cannot speak highly enough about James Jansz. After 12 months of daily pain, chiro and regular osteo visits I had almost lost faith that anything could be done to help my condition. James asked lots of questions, conducted a thorough analysis of all my scans and body and used all available information to find the source of the problem. James restored my confidence and has drastically improved my quality of life. I can now run around with my kids again pain free. He has a very friendly demeanour, meticulous investigation skills and an optimistic mindset.
Over the years I have sustained several different injuries and each time Ross has worked with me in a very professional, proactive and encouraging manner. Consults involve very clear communication in layperson's terms as to cause of injury and treatment plan with the view of preventing ongoing injury. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend freedom sports medicine as one of the leaders in physio. I recently had the pleasure of being accessed by James Jansz for a hamstring issue and he conducts himself in the most professional manor I have ever witnessed. The facilities here are world class as are the staff.
I have been visiting FSM for hip and back pain and I couldn't be more happier with the support and guidance I have been given.Highly recommend James as he is very knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. He described in great detail the issues with my hip and gave me advice on how to achieve my goals. Throughout treatment, there have been significant improvements as I'm already on my way back to running again.All the staff are genuinely friendly and professional. It's always a welcoming experience everytime.
Highly recommend James, he was EXTREMELY knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and energetic. Told me what was wrong with my knee problems in great detail and how to fix them, and after listening to his advice I am completely healed :)
I first visited Freedom Sports Medicine in 2019 to seek treatment from a sports podiatrist for a foot injury. I was really impressed by the welcoming nature and the expertise and the professionalism of everybody, from the podiatrist to the administration staff. In early 2020 when I was experiencing some hip pain, I had no hesitation in going back to FSM, this time for Sports Physiotherapy. I have now been seeing Ross Kinsella for a number of months and I could not be happier with his approach. With a combination of hands-on therapy and a comprehensive home program of strengthening and mobility, I am no longer experiencing any pain (after 10+ years of on-and-off pain).Ross' approach targets the cause, not just the symptom, and I am confident that I will benefit from this long-term, both in my sport and in life in general.Further to Ross' obvious expertise, he and his team are friendly, welcoming and warm and you are made to feel part of the FSM family as soon as you walk through the doors.I would not hesitate at all recommending Ross and Freedom Sports Medicine to anybody seeking assistance with pain or injury.
The guys at Freedom Sports Medicine have helped me recover through 2 knee surgeries in the past 6 months. Ross Kinsella has been very thorough in his work to get be back performing at my best! He has been constantly increasing the workload I can put out every time I have an appointment with him. I definitely couldn’t have recovered as fast as I have without the team at Freedom Sports Medicine!!
I started visiting Freedom Sports Medicine to deal with knee issues from running. Throughout the entire recovery and rehabilitation process, the entire team at FSM were extremely friendly, professional, and supportive. It makes a huge difference to not only get advice and treatment that makes a noticeable impact, but also to work with a team that genuinely wants their clients to succeed. I'm now at the stage where I'm stronger, and running longer distances than I ever did before I came here. I'd recommend them to anyone.
What a great team at Freedom Sports Medicine. From Ross with his care and attention, to Shauni and her great Myo treatments, they have looked after me well and continue to do so with my many on-going issues.Keep up the good work.
I've experienced a very personalised care at Freedom Sports Medicine. The staff know what they are talking about and they are thorough with their assessment, treatment and follow up. Appreciate that they are focused on getting me back to doing what I love!!
I can highly recommend all the guys at freedom sports medicine...especially Ross. Everyone has been so accommodating, helpful and friendly everytime I'm in. Have been seeing them since I injured my ankle and he has really helped me get right back on track.
The team at Freedom Sports have helped me get back to running after a stubborn achilles injury. The right treatment plan, orthotics, massages and graduated loading of my achilles have seen me get active again (after many months of not being able to run). Would highly recommend!
Ross and the team provide an excellent service. I first went to see Ross as I’d had a reoccurring issue for over 12 months that no other physio had been able to resolve or diagnose correctly. Ross knew what it was immediately and within a month it was resolved. Highly recommend Freedom Sports Medicine.
It is not until you are injured at work or play that you realise how important Ross and his team at FSM truly are! I have visited FSM a few times with different injuries over the last couple of years and each time I have been able to walk away confident in the treatment and advise I have been given. The care and knowledge shown from the minute you walk in, throughout your treatment and then into Rehab is outstanding. Well done everyone.
I have been visiting FSM for over 5 years now & the staff have been super friendly, very professional & they ensure we are looked after well.My main consultation has been with sports physio, Ross & he has literally fixed me every time I had an injury with running. The results have been quick & guaranteed.Love this place & people 🤗
A special thanks to Jess Pardo for your knowledge, compassion and understanding during my Physio appointment with you today. I went in with a few ailments and came out feeling much better thanks to your great work!
Ross and the team were excellent. Super professional and friendly. I had several different injuries and each time they helped me to understand my body and what was happening. Teaching me to manage things better in the future. Highly recommended, A+++.
I have been going to Freedom for many years, from my competitive days through to general health and wellbeing as I have gotten older. I take my children to them now. Freedom has and still remains primarily focused on prevention. I have always appreciated this philosophy as it had always reduced my down time from injury. Now as a parent of children competing in sports I love it. No parent wants to see their child hurt. All of Freedoms physiotherapists / podiatrist work together in not only to help healing process but to educate my children with the tools to prevent further injury or a reoccurrence. I was prompted to write this review after I google Freedom to give their number to a friend. I was shock to see a bad review. I understand that a staff member left but it's still has the same owner and culture. I did see that Freedom had responded to the person's review stating that they had never been there. It's sad and dishonest when people use google review or Facebook to deceitfully obtain or divert business. I highly recommend Freedom Sport.
The staff, environment, patient experience and convenience of FSM are top notch. The therapists are so professional and extremely well informed about the latest protocols and best practices. They consult with each other continually; and they are great about educating patients on the recovery process. Especially for a runner or other athlete who wants to get back to competing or training, it seemed like the therapists really "got it" and offered lots of ideas for patients to maintain fitness, maximize recovery, and otherwise do everything possible to safely resume activity. I would recommend this practice to anyone of any age or treatment scenario - really excellent."
I haven't been for a few years. Why am i writing a review? Because they did such a good job that i haven't needed to go back for a few years.I had troublesome ankles which were always hurting, and dramatically flinging themselves into the ground causing severe sprains on a regular basisNot only was I nursed through an extreme ankle sprain but was shown how to strengthen the ankles plus learnt how my other pains (foot cramp, grumpy knees and his) were all connected and ways to rectify and strengthen for the long term.Today as did a 10km run around the hills feeling like a champion I realised what an incredible improvement I have made since then. No soreness anywhere.I thought it was well past time I told the world what a brilliant job they have done to keep themselves from getting ongoingwork from me. (unless i get an injury, I'll be back with bells on)
Fantastic clinicAll the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. Everyone works together to help and fix any issues on the bodyRoss and all other staff listen and ensure they understand what you are there for and always fully discuss how they will help and where to from here
Have been going to Freedom for all the time it has been open, and before (Ross and Caleb). Made great connections that I can fall back on at any time I need a little help in my physical world. Practitioners with high levels of integrity who walk the walk - always looking to find ways to help you not need to go and see them!!! They assist and educate you how to look after yourself on your health and wellness journey through life. I will always recommend!
I have referred many people to Freedom Sports Medicine, because I am always confident they will get the treatment they need, to the highest of standards, not only fixing their problem but also educating them on how to continue their activities in a healthy, strong way.
Have been seeing the team at FSM for many years and cannot recommend them highly enough. From their personal approach, knowledge and success in diagnosing any sports injury I’ve had to their ongoing support. Their passion within the running community is a bonus as they understand how we patients feel at times. They get a ✔️ from me.
Ross is easily one of the best clinicians around. He is intelligent, intuitive and very experienced. He always takes a little extra time to make sure he understands exactly what is going on for you and helps you get back to being able to do whatever it is you love.
