Our sports physical therapist uses massage or soft tissue mobilisation to provide hands-on treatment to the injured athlete. This sports rehabilitation treatment is designed to reduce pain, increase circulation, decrease muscle tension, and improve blood flow. You can use many massage techniques to aid athletes in their return to sport, such as trigger point therapeutic and myofascial releases.
Aggressive joints mobilisation (or passively, the patient is relaxed) is a special sports rehabilitation treatment. It involves moving the athletes’ joints in particular directions by the sports physical therapy. This sports rehabilitation treatment’s purpose is to lessen pain and improve and restore mobility as quickly and completely as possible.
To increase strength and motion, sports exercise is a controlled stress that is applied to the body. There are many options for sports exercise. You can use machines or weights that you don’t have to pay. Our sports physical therapy therapists are very skilled in administering the appropriate “dose of sport specific exercise” to athletes to prevent flare-ups and reinjury. In the clinic and in training rooms, it is vital to ensure that each sport rehabilitation program includes proper and complete strengthening.
STRETCHING FOR ATHLETES
Because pain causes motion to stop, stretching is an integral part of nearly every sports rehabilitation program. We must ensure that the athlete has motion again in order to achieve 100% recovery. The sport physical therapist or you can apply constant pressure to a joint to stretch the muscles and tendons. Our progressive sports rehabilitation team can help athletes attain maximum flexibility to improve their performance.
BALANCE TRAINING – ATHLETES
Balance Training is a highly skilled and efficient sport rehabilitation technique. Each position and sport is unique in terms of balance disorders. The key aspect of sports rehabilitation balance training involves determining the reason for the loss of equilibrium and then designing a progressive program of physical therapy to restore full balance so that the player can return to play without any further injury.
NEUROMUSCULAR EDUCATION OF ATHLETES
This type is very common for many injuries and conditions. This is a highly specialised type of therapeutic exercise and movement training that involves retraining movement and balance as well as coordination, strength, and posture. In order to return safely to sport, athletes need to have higher levels of neuromuscular reeducation for their sport.
RUNNING AnalySIS FOR ATHLETES
Some form of gait training will be required for sports rehabilitation. Gait training can be described as removing a limp when an athlete is running, sprinting, cutting or other activities. Running is a complicated process. It involves many body parts and systems to regulate. The running cycle is highly individual for each athlete, so it does not work well for everyone. Our expert running analysis specialists will be able pinpoint the area of an athlete’s gait and restore the correct running and sprinting sequences to help them get back to their sport.
SPORTS POSTURAL TRAINING
In sports, posture training refers to how the body is in its main starting position. Proper posture is essential for athletic performance and injury prevention. Our team of skilled sports physical therapists will examine an athlete’s position and make necessary adjustments to alleviate pain and prevent injury.
WEIGHT TRAINING, LIFTING TECHNIQUES
Weight Training and Lifting techniques are how athletes condition themselves for the sport they love. Our sports physical therapists are qualified to help you identify the best lifting and weight training techniques to avoid injury.
SPORTS COMPRESSION RECOVER
Vaso (blood vessels), pneumatic compression (air pressure) is a technique for sports rehabilitation that employs sequential extremity compression in order to improve an athlete’s ability to recover from a strenuous exercise. A sleeve covering the injured extremity is used to apply pressure to the area pushing blood toxins such lactic acid away from the muscles and toward the gut. This type of therapy is used to reduce the swelling caused by an injury, surgery, or other circumstances.
Traction is used in sports rehabilitation for many body parts. It is most commonly used to reduce neck pain and lower back discomfort. It can either be applied mechanically using a machine, or manually by physical therapists. This type is used to treat lower back and neck pain. It also increases mobility of the spine by separating the disc spaces in the lower and/or neck joints. This relieves pressure on the nerves.
Ultrasound is a deep heating therapy that treats many musculoskeletal conditions, such as tendonitis, strains, sprains and strains. Ultrasound can be administered by a sports physical therapist to reduce inflammation. This sports rehabilitation modality helps to reduce pain and relax soft tissue, in preparation of manual therapy techniques such joint mobilisation and massage.
LASER LIGHT Therapy
Light therapy refers to the use of painless light that is passed through skin at a particular wavelength to aid in the healing process for injured tissues. The energy generated by the light causes the cell to become more energetic, which in turn promotes a healthier and faster healing process. It is important that laser therapy doesn’t need to be performed with a hot Class IV laser in order to work.
TENS or ELECTRICAL STIMULATION
There are many forms of electrical stimulation. They can be used to treat a variety of conditions and produce very different results. TENS, or transcutaneous electrical neuromuscular stimuli, is the most common form of electrical stimulation. It is used in sports rehabilitation to decrease swelling and pain after an injury or surgery. The stimulation of nerves and muscles can also promote tissue healing.
Iontophoresis can be described as an electrical stimulation used to deliver anti-inflammatory medication via the skin to inflame or irritate tissue. The most widely used steroid medication, dexamethasone (which is pushed through the skin via an electrical current), is probably the most well-known. This type is used to reduce inflammation and pain around the ligaments and tendon.
If you have injuries, moist heat or hot packs may be applied. Hot packs may be used for sports rehabilitation to increase circulation, relax muscles, and offer pain relief. Use hot packs safely at home or in the clinic. Skin can get burnt if not properly protected and air circulation is not maintained.
ICE THERMAL THERAPY
Ice or cold packs are required to treat any injury sustained in athletic activities. This is done to help reduce pain, swelling, and manage inflammation. Ice is typically used to reduce local swelling in sports injuries during the acute phase. A cold pack is usually applied after sports rehabilitation for 10-15 minutes. Ice should be applied at home as well as in the clinic to avoid frostbite.
