How it Works
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.

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.
