Our Approach

Our approach to solving your problem follows a simple three (3) step process

1

ASSESSMENT & DIAGNOSIS

We effectively assess, diagnose and accurately identify the CAUSE of a sports injury or condition and the extent of the damage or condition.

We do this by 

  1. Obtain a thorough medical history from the athlete, including information about the current injury or condition and any previous injuries or conditions.

  2. Perform a physical examination of the athlete, including tests to assess your range of motion, strength, and other functional abilities.

  3. Use specialised assessment tools and techniques, such as gait analysis or video analysis, to gather more detailed information about the athlete’s movement and function.

  4. Analyse all the information gathered during the assessment process to identify the injury or condition’s cause and the damage’s extent.

  5. Develop a treatment plan based on the findings of the assessment and diagnosis process, taking into account the athlete’s individual needs and goals.

TREATMENT

We use a variety of treatment styles, such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and stretches, and education, to assist you in recovering from injuries, improving performance, and preventing future problems.

Some common treatments used by sports physiotherapists include:

  1. Manual therapy: This may include techniques such as massage, joint mobilization, and spinal manipulation to help improve movement, reduce pain, and improve function.

  2. Trigger point releases: This technique involves the use of pressure or massage to release tight knots or “trigger points” in the muscles that can cause pain and dysfunction. By releasing these trigger points, sports physiotherapists can help reduce muscle tension, improve range of motion, and reduce pain.

  3. Therapeutic exercises and stretches: Sports physiotherapists may prescribe specific exercises and stretches to help improve strength, flexibility, and mobility, and to aid in recovery from injury.

  4. Electrotherapy: This may include using modalities such as electrical stimulation and laser therapy to help reduce pain and swelling and promote healing.

  5. Education and advice: Sports physiotherapists may educate athletes on how to prevent injuries, optimize performance, and maintain good overall health and wellness.

  6. Other treatments: Other treatments that sports physiotherapists may use include taping, bracing, and the use of assistive devices to help athletes manage their injuries and optimize their performance.

SELF MANAGEMENT

Self-management refers to the actions and behaviours that an athlete takes to manage their health and well-being. This may include following a prescribed treatment plan, performing exercises and stretches as directed, and making lifestyle changes to optimize health and prevent future injuries. 

Some standard Self Management Techniques may include:

  1. Following a prescribed treatment plan may consist of performing specific exercises and stretches, using assistive devices as directed, and taking any prescribed medications.

  2. Doing your exercises: We will provide you with Therapeutic exercises, stretches and trigger point releases as part of your self-management plan.

  3. Making lifestyle changes may include improving nutrition, getting enough sleep, and managing stress to optimise health and prevent future injuries.

  4. Participating in self-care activities may include applying ice or heat to an injury, using foam rollers or other self-massage tools to release muscle tension, and stretching to improve flexibility and mobility.

  5. Seeking additional support: This may include seeking the help of other health professionals, such as a doctor or nutritionist, or joining a support group to help manage injuries and optimise performance.

  6. Staying informed: This may involve reading about injuries, treatments, and self-management techniques or attending seminars or workshops to learn more about managing injuries and optimising health and performance.
