Tailored to your specific need

Each sport has its common injuries that are related to the bio-mechanical and physical needs of the sport and many times we as individuals do not and cannot adapt effectively to these bio-mechanical and physical needs and this will then lead to injury.

Getting LJ back on track

As Sport physiotherapists we specialise in assessing and treating these injuries taking into consideration the bio-mechanics of your body and the bio-mechanical needs of the sport of choice and then also the physical aspects of the individual and the physical requirements of the sport.

The physiotherapist will then design a rehabilitation programme specific to the individual and their bio-mechanical needs and the specific needs of the sport.

Such a treatment programme may include:

  • Manual techniques
  • Dry needling
  • Soft tissue treatment
  • Electrotherapeutic modalities

Sport physiotherapy involves highly skilled methods to evaluate the level of injury, various assessment scales to diagnose neuromuscular injuries and functional assessment methods to evaluate the cardiovascular capability and post-injury improvement.

Neuromuscular injuries are a chief concern of sport physiotherapy. The treatment and rehabilitation process includes a well-programmed therapeutic procedure to treat and completely rehabilitate the patient. The program, usually developed by a team of physicians and sports physical therapists, includes various physical training, functional activities or rehabilitation programs along with psychological counselling.

The complete program helps to treat the injury, restore optimal function and contribute to the enhancement of sports performance.

Sports physical therapy practice involves specially designed therapeutic measures to help the athletically-active individual to prevent injuries or continue their activity with minimal disruption with an existing injury.

This area of treatment includes pre-participation training, screening, equipment recommendations or cardiovascular fitness programs to prevent associated injuries and improve the client’s physical endurance.

Performance enhancement is another important area of sport physiotherapy. The special training for performance based rehabilitation helps the athletically-active individual to improve their quality of performance in a variety of ways. The basic foundation of performance enhancement is evaluation of neuromuscular and cardiovascular-pulmonary systems.

The evaluation procedure includes assessing strengths and weaknesses of an individual’s physical profile and assessment of deficiency in flexibility and muscular strength or endurance. A follow-up program may also be included to monitor the need for changes in the training program.
