A sports physiotherapist uses a variety of techniques to help you improve your performance, recover from an injury and prevent re-injury. The process of diagnosis and treatment involves the following steps: 

  1. Evaluation and Development of a Personalized Treatment Plan

Your sports therapist can ask you a series of extensive questions regarding the current sports injury, the previous injuries as well as complete physical examination.

  1. Identifying the Cause of Injury and Areas of Development 

 Your exercise physiologist will identify the causes of the injury as well as the factors that have contributed to the damage. We analyze your biomechanics, and muscular strength to identify areas where you may enhance your game and avoid a sporting injury.

  1. Individualized Treatment Plan

 This will address all weaknesses and imbalances. The physiotherapy treatment plan includes but is not limited to manual therapy, athletic therapy, heat/ice, stretching, electrotherapy, acupuncture, ultrasound, and vestibular therapy. Your exercise physiotherapist customizes your treatment according to your sport or the injury that you might experience.

  1. Strengthen and improve the mechanics of other body parts

 This is especially important if an athlete needs sports rehabilitation to return to her game. 

  1. Using realistic return-to-sport timelines

 This is a skill that can only be learned through practice. Various people heal injuries at different rates.

  1. Collaboration with the Trainer or Coach

We can consult your coach, team management, sports doctor, or parent, to determine a therapy or exercise program for avoiding an injury and improving your performance. 

  1. Education on Prevention of Injuries 

We can educate you on how to prevent injuries in the future. This may include education on posture, and sports technique to avoid re-injuries.
