Your Sports and Spinal Physiotherapist may use the following techniques:
- ‘hands on’ techniques such as massage, joint mobilisation
- taping to support an area or facilitate normal movement
- rehabilitation exercises and advice, taking into account individual goals and history
Your Sports Physio also has a role in injury prevention. There are several injuries (including ankle sprains, knee injuries and hamstring strains) for which the risk can be significantly reduced if a specific injury prevention program is used. These programs are typically not time intensive and can improve sporting performance as well.
Common sporting injuries:
- joint sprains— knee, ankle, shoulder and finger injuries
- muscle strains—hamstring, calf, quadricep
- tendon injuries—achilles, patella and gluteal tendon pain
- bony overuse injuries—such as ‘shin splints’ or stress fractures
- rehabilitation from surgery —knee, shoulder or ankle arthroscopies or reconstructions
Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy emphasises the importance of evidence-based practice, using findings from clinical and biological research to support assessment, treatment and decision-making. If you are suffering from a sports related injury, it is important to have your condition assessed by a sports physiotherapist.
Lower back pain can occur because of over exertion. Many times, it happens as a result of a sports injury. Unfortunately, there is often no simple cure. At Turramurra Sports Spinal Physiotherapy, we know that it can become more manageable with certain treatments. We take the time to work out what is the correct treatment for your particular condition.
