Injury Prevention

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In medicine it is often spoken that “Prevention is better than a cure” and when it comes to injuries, we don’t see it any differently. While not all injuries are preventable, many can be predictable.

Research into injuries is something that has been developing over a long period of time and helps direct us towards the likelihood of injuries for a given population. We know females have a higher risk of ACL tears due to the anatomy of the pelvis, throwers and other overhead athletes have more shoulder injuries, gymnasts and fast bowlers in cricket have a greater chance of lumbar stress fractures.

So we can see that certain sports and populations have their own risk factors and even within an individual there are predictors for increased risk. Whether you want to look at strength, mobility, balance, activation or one of a few other factors – asymmetry or differences side-to-side in most populations can help us evaluate the potential for injury.

Injury Rehabilitation

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How many people do you know who always sprain their ankle or tear a hamstring? Or even multiple dislocations of a shoulder or kneecap?

One of the best predictors of future injury is a previous injury to that tissue so an appropriate rehabilitation program is essential if you want to reduce the chances of it happening again.

Too often will someone wait for their pain to pass before returning to a sport or activity thinking that they’re ready to go but the pain can be just a result of inflammation which is the first step in the healing process and the functional deficits will remain unless rehabilitated.

It’s never too late to rehabilitate an old injury so let us take a look for you!
