INJURY MANAGEMENT & PREVENTION @ THE INJURY CLINIC PHYSIOTHERAPY
Any tissue, be it bone, ligament, tendon, muscle, joint capsule etc. can become symptomatic when it is loaded adversely. Strength & Conditioning Programs are commonly used as part of injury management plans to ensure that the “driver” or cause of your symptoms is addressed. This assists not only in symptom management, but prevention of injury recurrence.
Adverse or incorrect biomechanics along with strength deficits are the “driver” behind many injuries we see at The Injury Clinic Physiotherapy. Once accurately identified, it is important that the factors contributing to the development of your injury (strength deficits, adverse biomechanics etc.) are addressed. Strength & Conditioning is the best way to achieve this, provided that programs are targeted and specific to the individual.
Strength & Conditioning Programs at The Injury Clinic are designed in consultation with both Physiotherapists and Strength & Conditioning Coaches. They are evidence-based, targeted and specific to you, your injury and your goals. They are more often than not the most important aspect of your injury management.
If your injury has resolved, and you are interested in pursuing Strength & Conditioning to assist in both injury prevention and performance enhancement, Strength & Conditioning Coaches will be able to work with you to design and implement a program that is targeted and specific to your individual goals.
Option #1: Strength & Conditioning 1:1 Session
The Injury Clinic Strength & Conditioning Coaches have times scheduled for the provision of 1:1 sessions. If you are starting a program that has been designed in consultation with one of the Strength & Conditioning Coaches, a 1:1 session will be scheduled at the time of your initial consult. This will be to ensure appropriate program design and execution of exercises etc.
Option #2: Supervised Strength & Conditioning Sessions
If you have had a program designed by your treating Physiotherapist, or have attended an Initial Consult and 1:1 session with a Strength & Conditioning Coach; You may have been advised to attend a Supervised Strength Session. A minimum of 2 Supervised Sessions are advised when starting any Strength & Conditioning Program. This ensures appropriate exercise and dosage prescription, safe and intended execution of programmed exercises and confidence in the goals and aims of your program.
Option #3: Independent Use
The Injury Clinic Gym is also available for independent use outside the times scheduled for Strength & Conditioning 1:1 Consults and Supervised Sessions.
