Sports Therapy is a type of health care that specifically focuses on the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness. Sports therapy treatments should be tailored to meet the needs of each individual.
So what are the Benefits?
- Functional Testing
This is where we get the client to mimic the skills and movements necessary for their specific sport. While completing the various routines and exercises, the therapist will watch closely, looking for anything that indicates areas of weakness or pain. From these results we will use it to build their client’s unique treatment plan.
2. Unique Treatment Plan
By implementing sports-specific exercises (as well as position-specific) into their client’s routine, the therapist can better monitor the client’s progress and determine when he/she can resume the sport as soon as possible. We know that each client will be eager to return to their sport as quick as they can.
3. Massage Therapy
Massages after intense training or game prevent the delayed soreness of muscles by encouraging proper blood flow throughout the body and preventing muscle fatigue. Not only can a proper and regularly scheduled massage reduce pain, but it can also provide athletes with physiological and psychological benefits, such as stress management.
4. Prevention Is Key
Prevention is almost as important as the cure. As well as helping our clients recover from their injury, but we also want to provide you with a set of tools and exercises that focus on maintaining muscle strength and endurance to prevent any future problems.
