WHAT TO EXPECT…

At The Injury Clinic Physiotherapy, we will work with you to diagnose, fix & prevent your injury.  We don’t just look to treat the symptoms, we will hunt the cause of your injury as well.

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 designed by Physiotherapists at The Injury Clinic are targeted and specific to you, your injury and your goals. They are more often than not the most important aspect of your injury management.

HOW IT WORKS…

Step #1: Arrange a Functional Strength & Conditioning consult at the clinic. This can be done either online (CLICK HERE) or via phone (03) 5229 3911.

Your consult will go for 40mins and will include:

  • A discussion regarding: goals, aims, injury history, activity levels etc.
  • Assessment of strength, muscle activation & motor patterning
  • Development of an individualised strength & conditioning program

 

Step #2: A consult will be arranged to complete your program with 1:1 supervision. This will ensure that your program is both appropriate and safe.

 

Step #3: A follow up consult will be arranged with your Physiotherapist for 2 weeks. This will ensure you are on track, and provide an opportunity for any changes or progressions to be made to your program. It is important that your program be monitored closely so continued improvements and gains can be made.
