How Will Sports Injury Rehabilitation Benefit Me?
1. Physiotherapy effectively treats injuries and helps to avoid future injuries.
Our physiotherapists are experienced and compassionate about helping others. They have a vast depth of insight on rehabilitation treatments, including prevention of future injuries. A physiotherapist is an expert in movement, with the ability to identify factors contributing to your injury that you may not have even considered. This may include limitations on your range of motion, motor control impairment, or weakness of the core. When these factors are addressed, your risk of injury significantly decreases.
2. Treatment plans are individualized to each patient.
Physiotherapists understand that no two athletes are the same – so no two treatment plans should be the same, either. Everyone experiences pain and injury differently, and everyone’s body recovers in different ways. After a thorough physical evaluation, your physiotherapist will create a treatment plan based on your type of injury, stage of recovery, personal goals, and any underlying conditions.
Your treatment plan will follow detailed steps all leading to your end goal: return to sport. For example, in the beginning stages of your recovery, your treatments will be focused on pain relief, inflammation reduction, and tissue healing. Once the pain is alleviated and the swelling is no longer present, you’ll move on to the next part of your treatment plan, focusing on restoring your strength, balance, endurance, and range of motion, in addition to activating your central nervous system.
If you were referred by a doctor or surgeon, your physiotherapist will also take into account any special instructions you may have been given regarding physical activity. Your physiotherapist will work closely with anyone else involved in the medical treatment and rehabilitation of your sports injury.
3. Beyond Physiotherapy can help you avoid potentially harmful drugs or invasive surgeries.
Your physiotherapist will create a treatment plan for you, based on your individual needs. Physiotherapy is a natural and holistic approach to healing, including services such as:
- Therapeutic exercises
- This may include specialized treatments that your physiotherapist has been certified to perform, such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation.
- Manual therapy
- This may include massage or joint mobilizations.
Physiotherapy has been proven to be successful in treating both acute and chronic injuries, such as ligament sprains, muscle strains, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendinitis, and more. Your physiotherapist will teach you about what your body is experiencing and the recovery process it will go through. You and your physiotherapist will work together to help you reach your physical goals, allowing you to be engaged and active in your rehabilitation.
