Sports Specific Rehabilitation and Conditioning

core
By Michael Hall

Successful sports injury treatment requires an intimate understanding of all the physical, psychological and social implications of the injury itself as well as a detailed knowledge of the physical demands and biomechanical considerations of the sport. For example, a tennis player with a shoulder problem will need a different conditioning program to a footballer. Likewise, an elite athlete will need to be conditioned to a higher level than a recreational sports person. Consequently, each rehabilitation and conditioning program must be tailored not only to an individual’s needs, but also to the demands of the sport that they play.

Sports specific rehabilitation – going to the next level

The fastest way to recover from injury is to teach you how to stop the things which cause it in the first place. Clues as to the source and cause of your problem are often gained through asking questions such as “What are you doing, or what have you just done, when you feel your problem?” These clues can then be tested by a variety of techniques and tools to determine the cause of your problem. At Bodywise Health some of the examination techniques we use include:

At Bodywise Health, some of the examination techniques we use include:

1.Comprehensive Biomechanical Examination to analyse your body’s alignment;

2.Real Time Ultrasound to determine that correct timing and activation of your core supporting muscles;

3.Electromyography to give feedback as to whether muscles are contracting at the right time and with the right intensity;

4.Video Analysis which involves filming cycling movement so that it can be analysed and any abnormal patterning can be corrected;

5.Gait Scan which measures the amount and timing of foot pressure during walking and running and helps identify and rectify problems to do with the feet and legs.

Combining the results of each of these tests, enables us to identify both the source and cause of your problem which allows a targeted rehabilitation program to be devised and implemented. Person specific, movement specific and sport / function specific, this rehab program is then performed one on one under the instruction of your physiotherapist to make sure that the “injurying” stresses are eliminated and that your movement becomes as effective and efficient as possible.

Running Assessments

core
By Michael Hall

There are few more liberating things in life than going for a run. It requires minimal equipment, minimal time and can virtually be done anywhere. Unfortunately for many people however, running is not a pleasurable experience but a painful one. As running can place up to 3 times your body weight through your feet, legs, pelvis and back, it is no wonder that the joints, muscles and soft tissues can break down under the jarring stresses. To run pain free, you have to be able to run well with good if not ideal body mechanics. Anything less will eventually lead to injury and pain. It is critically important therefore that when assessing and treating running injuries, that the sources and even more importantly the causes of the injuries are identified and remedied. This means that not only must individual muscles, joints and tissues be tested for normal control and mechanics, but the running motion, intensity and amount must be addressed to identify abnormal or excessive stresses which could led to injury. A faulty running action, excessive training, hard or changing surfaces and poor footwear can lead just as much to injury as restricted or overly mobile joints, weak, stiff or short muscles or lack of balance. At Bodywise Health, we leave no stone unturned in assessing all these factors and more so that you experience the best, fastest and most long term recovery possible.

Sport Specific Assessments

core
By Michael Hall

The demands of sports are as individual as the people who play them. Some sports require amazing strength, others amazing agility and others amazing endurance. To be optimally effective therefore, assessments, treatments and conditioning programs must be tailored to both individual capacities as well as the sporting demands. Just as swimming requires a different assessment and treatment system when compared with football, beginners or elderly people need a different program to an elite athletes At Bodywise Health, we cater for both in designing a comprehensive examination and treatment system that is person and sport specific. It is ideal for sports such as:

• aerobics
• swimming
• cycling
• running
• golf
• tennis
• netball
• football / soccer and even;
• yachting.
