INJURY MANAGEMENT & PREVENTION @ THE INJURY CLINIC PHYSIOTHERAPY
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.
During later stage injury management and return to sport phases, you may be recommended to consult with The Injury Clinic Strength & Conditioning Coaches. They have the specific skills, experience and expertise to progress you to the functional level required.
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. If you have previously consulted with one of The Injury Clinic’s Physiotherapists, your program will be designed by Strength & Conditioning Coaches in consultation with your Physiotherapist.
