What is Sport Injury Rehab?

redgap

Sports Injury Rehabilitation helps athletes effectively treat pain and return to normal function. We emphasize the importance of early injury recognition and treatment.

In conjunction with receiving a course of treatment, specific strengthening and flexibility exercises will be implemented. Progressive exercises are included in rehabilitation programmes to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state.

Our therapists provide care that is unsurpassed and unique to each individual patient. Our team approach includes close communication with all involved parties (referring physician, etc.) on the progress of each individual.

Sports Injury Rehabilitation treats a range of conditions including acute sports injuries, strains, sprains, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs, tendonitis, hand injuries, shoulder dislocation, foot or ankle dysfunction and surgery rehab.

The Sports Injury Rehabilitation Program will benefit those with:

  • Post-operative injuries.
  • ACL reconstruction.
  • Meniscus tears.
  • Rotator cuff repair.
  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Sprains and strains.
  • Tedonitis and bursitis.

How it Helps

redgap

Sports Injury Rehabilitation is a multi-disciplinary approach to the prevention, evaluation, and treatment of injuries. The first step towards recovery is getting an accurate diagnosis from a certified sports-injury specialist. Typically, the initial stage of treatment involves reducing pain and promoting healing. Once pain and swelling are reduced, progressive reconditioning treatment will begin.

Exercises will be prescribed to target specific goals such as mobility, flexibility training, coordination of balance and joint positioning. As progress is made, the athlete and trainer can work together towards re-establishing strength.

We use state-of-the-art techniques and procedures including:

  • Functional activities.
  • Sports/Activity specific exercises and training.
  • Bracing and taping (athletic and kinesiotaping).
  • Fabrication of protective pads.
  • Modalities.
  • Manual Therapy.
  • Muscle reconditioning.
  • Proprioceptive training.

Common Questions

This depends on the extent and severity of the injury as well as the therapy method used. Compliance of the injured athlete will also affect the length and success of the program.

There are six independent variables which can help determine an athlete’s adherence to the sports injury rehabilitation: social support, self-motivation, perceived exertion, pain tolerance, scheduling, and environment.

Although a famous athlete who sustained a minor injury can make the news, anyone who plays a sport is susceptible to sports injuries. The three groups that are especially vulnerable are children and adolescents, middle-aged athletes, and female athletes.

Athletes who play contact sports are at higher risk than those who engage in non-contact games.


The first step would be to stop whatever you are doing and apply first aid. Inform your coach. Depending on the injury, you may need to see a doctor specializing in sports medicine who can then give you diagnosis and treatment. Injury treatment may range from simple immobilizing of the affected area to sports injury rehabilitation to surgery. A pt Health no-obligation appointment can help to point you in the right direction.

Research

In the Epidemiology of Athletic Injuries released by the College of Human Medicine of Michigan State University stated that: “Accurate and reliable injury rate data would better indicate the types of injuries or situations where injuries occur that could be positively affected by appropriate rule changes, equipment, changes, or suggested changes in coaching technique.”

In another study, the compliance of the injured athletes in the rehabilitation process was investigated and it was revealed that practical guidelines and specific strategies, increase effective communication and active listening, encourage social support and positive outlook as well as pain management can improve the compliance to a sports injury rehabilitation program.
