Sports & exercise related injuries
Sustaining a sports injury is a common downside to playing a sport. However the physical benefits and psychological benefits of participating in sport far outweigh the potential temporary downside of a sports injury.
Physiotherapy following a sports injury involves a detailed examination both subjective and objective in order to arrive at a definitive diagnosis, agree on a treatment plan and commence physiotherapy treatment. This is closely followed by, and occasionally, runs parallel with your rehabilitation programme.
Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury and involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power. It is achieved through various exercises. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries.
Regardless of the type of sports injury, the principles of rehabilitation are frequently the same. We recommend a physiotherapy assessment before beginning a rehabilitation program. It is important to understand that everyone is different and will respond to exercises and treatment routines at varying rates. Therefore it is imperative for the rehabilitation programme to be tailored for the patient.
