Treatment & management of your sporting injury
The Physiotherapists at Hindmarsh and Fitzroy Physiotherapy have vast experience in the treatment and management of sports injuries and the ongoing or contributing musculoskeletal dysfunction.
We know how frustrating it is to be out of action for your chosen sport. We also know how important it is to manage those injuries correctly and safely in order facilitate a full recovery and reduced risk of re injury.
Our Physios are dedicated and focused on prevention, diagnosis, treatment and the rehabilitation of your sporting injury with our ultimate goal being to restore your full function for return to sport, recreation and work.
Just like other injuries, early and accurate assessment and treatment is the key to a quick resolution of the problem and a speedy return to your activity or sport.
Types of Injuries
Sports injuries can be broadly classified as either traumatic or overuse injuries, and are differentiated from other types of injuries due to the dynamic nature in which they occur and that some individuals with sports related injuries need to perform at a higher level than others for their return to sport.
This differentiation is taken into consideration in the assessment and treatment plan. Each sport and person has individual demands and rehabilitation must be adapted to those needs. The level and the function required is carefully taken into consideration. We also understand that returning to your 10k run is as important to you as the person who needs to get back to yoga or the school athlete who's desperate to get ready for Sports day.
A successful return to sport depends on :
- Accurate diagnosis with an emphasis on the underlying causes of your pain.
- Evidence based management
- Correct treatment of either acute injuries such as ligament sprains, muscle or tendon tears or treatment of a problem that has arisen due to poor biomechanics and movement patterns
- Home programs and treatment regimes to facilitate your faster recovery
- Graduated rehabilitation and a return to full activity
- Education in injury prevention
Our skilled Physiotherapists at the Hindmarsh and Fitzroy Physiotherapy Clinics will use a combination of therapies, movement training, physical and electro physical modalities to decrease your pain and restore function.
