Putney Physiotherapy’s Role in Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can have a debilitating effect not only on a person’s physical capacity but also on their metal state. Physiotherapy can play a key role in the accurate assessment and management of sports injuries. During the initial inflammatory phase of injury (24-48 hours) physiotherapy treatment modalities will reduce damage caused; the sooner you get treatment the quicker you will recover.
Sports injuries maybe traumatic, for example a fracture to an arm or leg, or non-traumatic- the pain or discomfort reported appeared over time. The former will tend to have a clear mechanism of injury in the history whilst the latter may be as a result of overuse or biomechanical dysfunction. It is critical therefore to establish the cause of the athletes discomfort so that management may be designed to address whole body rehabilitation with the goal of returning to sport at the same level or ideally a degree fitter than previously experienced.
Rehabilitating Injuries with Physiotherapy in Putney
The vital aspect of all rehabilitation from a sporting injury is that it must be sports specific. The Physiotherapist must work together with the patient to establish not only the goals and time frame of treatment and rehabilitation but also the demands placed on the patient’s body through the undertaking of their chosen sport so that late stage rehabilitation can recreate similar demands in a controlled setting.
Physio4Life employs specialist sport injury clinicians who, with the use of the excellent rehabilitation facilities, have successfully worked with thousands of athletes from all ability levels to aid recovery whilst ensuring a high level of conditioning to produce a seamless transition back into their chosen sport. Our therapists implement progressive, sports-specific rehabilitation from injury or surgery, in the shortest possible time, whilst preventing any further injury from occurring.
