Sports Screening and Injury Prevention
– Sports Screening & Injury Prevention
Injuries can have a significant impact on your life and sporting performance. Recent research shows that missed training from injury and illness significantly reduces your chance of meeting your performance goals.
In addition, the greatest predictor for injury is having had a previous injury! My Physio’s Sports Screening Assessments can help you to identify areas in which you have:
- Incompletely rehabilitated a previous injury
- Deficits in movement capacity and performance, muscle activation, power, endurance and flexibility
- Risk factors for greater susceptibility to injury
At My Physio we have developed a range of sport specific and general screening tools that can be used to identify these areas, and develop a rehabilitation (or prehabilitation) plan to help you enhance your performance whilst reducing your injury risk.
Our sports physiotherapy specific screening tools can be used for individuals, as well as for teams, and include (but are not limited to) those for:
- Pre-Pointe Dance
All of our screenings come with a report and a rehab program.
We liaise with parents, coaches, schools, trainers and/or doctors where indicated to optimise feedback and focus on actionable areas that follow completion of a My Physio Sports Screening Assessment.
Injury Prevention Warm-Up Programs
In addition there are a range of team Injury Prevention warm-up programs that have been developed to reduce the chance of injury, and improve athletic performance.
When replacing a regular warm-up with a Sports specific neuromuscular injury prevention program, research has shown that injury rates can be reduced by approx. 50% in males and >60% in females.
These are compelling findings that should be a great motivation for implementation at every levelr of sport, from weekend warriors, to elite professional of course. These programs only work when they are done!
Consistent implementation of these program s (2 X week ongoing), with attention to quality in their performance optimises the results.
My Physio are well acquainted with current programs for: AFL, soccer, Netball and Rugby and are able to help you implement these according to established protocols. Let us know how we can help your club reduce its player injury toll.
