WHAT IS SPORTS THERAPY
Movement is vital to our everyday living activities; socialising, leisure and livelihood, so don’t let an injury affect your lifestyle.
Rehabilitation following any injury no matter how minor or major can play an important role within the recovery process. Not only will it have great benefits physiologically (improving movement, muscle strength and body awareness) but psychologically can help increase confidence, mood and self-belief as you begin to be able to achieve simple tasks pain free again.
A structured rehabilitation programme will see you right through from the start of your journey, to the end of your journey. We construct rehabilitation programmes for all injuries, including every day and occupational, as well as injuries sustained participating in sport.
All of our Sports Therapists have studied for 3 years at University gaining a BscHons Degree.
WHAT'S INVOLVED IN A SPORTS THERAPY PLAN?
The first stage to achieving a full return to pain free and functional movement is an accurate diagnosis from one of our fully qualified and experienced sports injury and rehabilitation specialists. During initial treatment session, we will complete a thorough assessment to establish your current stage of recovery.
We will look at and measure your:
- Available range of motion – are there any restrictions?
Stability – around the joint or full kinetic chain
Strength – any muscular imbalances present?
Flexibility – any muscle length imbalances/restrictions effecting the surrounding area?
Power/Speed – dependent on level of ability on you initial assessment.
Ability to perform functional movement patterns in a stable and unstable environment.
After the investigative phase, we will discuss with you the findings and the rehabilitation plan. This will include setting specific, measurable, achievable targets so we are able to track your progress over a period of time and a specific programme will be established to meet your needs The follow up appointments will allow us to continually measure your progress and adapt the programme to be able to lead you towards your goals and your return to pain free movement.
