Sports is a big part of an active lifestyle – being active sportsmen and sportswomen ourselves, we understand how important it is to have a sports-specific physiotherapy input within your rehabilitation program. Our sports physios are skilled in assessing, diagnosing and treating different sports injuries including but not limited to:
- Ankle sprain
- Heel spur
- Achilles tendonitis
- Shin splint
- Calf- and hamstring strain
- Knee pain
- ITB pain
- Tennis elbow
- Golfers elbow
- Shoulder pain
- Back pain
Of course, being sportsmen and sportswomen, injuries are common and bound to occur. Does this sound familiar?
- You want to get back to the exercises or sports activities you love but you’re afraid to because you have a specific pain that happens after each game session?
- Or you find yourself holding back and limiting your exercises because you’re not too sure how to start an exercise program after you’ve experienced an injury or illness?
- You’re not sure if exercises will make your _____ (insert painful body part here i.e. elbow, shoulder, knee etc) pain worse?
- Lastly, you’ve wondered where to get professional help to treat the source of your pain and to increase your fitness level to the level you plan to reach?
If that does sound familiar to you, then you can consider connecting with us for a sports physiotherapist to attend to you or your loved ones.
It’s important that your pains and injuries are treated correctly and appropriately, and the specific exercises are prescribed correctly and customized to your particular condition and injuries. The reason is that by taking corrective action to treat the problem at its core will prevent recurrence of a specific injury, increase your ability to participate in a sport/activity you love and more importantly, preserve your body part(s).
Regardless if you’re a recreational athlete or a professional one, good management and physiotherapy of your injury is key to a quick and full recovery. Not only is the cause treated, but we also bring it sports-specific physiotherapy, where we look at the physical, movement and skill requirements of your sport into therapy.
Each sports physiotherapy session will always be one-to-one with our sports physiotherapist, as well as customized exercise therapy. We combine the best evidence based practices in physiotherapy targeted at the core of your pain and injuries, and take you through systematic rehabilitation and strengthening.
Our goal is to guide you from pain and poor fitness to pain-free and full engagement in sports and exercises that you enjoy.
Should I see a sports physiotherapist?
If you’re not too sure if you should see a sports physiotherapist, here are some guiding questions/statements to help to make a decision.
- You want to improve your fitness level but you’re not too sure how to.
- If you have (recurring) injury to your ____ (insert body part here i.e. shoulder, knee, ankle etc) and want to get back to playing your sports at the same or higher level quickly, safely and most importantly, without pain.
- If you have an odd instability or pain in your joints. An example is that your shoulder or knee feels “looser” and you feel pain in a part of your joint.
- If you “often” dislocate or sprain a certain body part or joint.
- Muscle pain that doesn’t seem to go away.
- You’re going to have surgery soon or you’ve just had surgery such as the reconstruction of the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), meniscal repairs of knees and shoulders, wrists etc
Of course, you can always give us a buzz over the phone or mail, and we’ll let you know what we can do for you =)
