Benefits of Sports Injury Rehabilitation Physiotherapy

There are many benefits associated with completing an individualised sports injury rehabilitation program under the guidance of our Physiotherapists. The first is that it can help reduce your injury time and speed up your recovery by getting you back to full function quickly. The second is that it can significantly reduce the likelihood of further injuries or re-injury occurring to the same joint or muscle.

You will also experience other benefits such as improvement in strength and mobility, reduction in pain or discomfort and improvement in sports-specific performance. Improvements in movement patterns and posture, balance, coordination and stability can also be gained through active participation in your rehabilitation program.

What to Expect / Visiting a Physiotherapist

Whatever your sport or level of participation, 4 Life Physiotherapy can help. Our physiotherapists have worked with athletes from a range of sporting codes and of varying levels from social and amateur sports people to athletes competing at state, national and international levels.

1. Assessment

Our Physiotherapists will perform a comprehensive assessment of your sports injury to find the cause of your pain or discomfort. This may include asking about yourself and your injury and what activities make your pain worse and what makes it better. We will then examine the injured / painful area using a range of specialised orthopaedic tests.

2. Diagnosis

Next, our experienced Physiotherapists will offer a diagnosis based on their findings from your assessment. If further investigations like X-rays or MRIs or other medical testing are required, we will provide a referral. We will take the time to explain your diagnosis and answer any questions you may have.

3. Treatment

At 4 Life Physiotherapy, we adopt a holistic approach to treatment. We will address not only the symptoms of your condition but also the underlying cause of your problem, ensuring long-term results. We have a fully equipped rehabilitation gym on-site to take you through your rehabilitation program.

4. Ongoing Care

The last thing you want following a sports injury is to suffer a reinjury during your recovery and return to sport. That’s why our focus is on holistic, long-term results, rather than a “quick-fix”. We will explain to you the best course of treatment for your injury to not only get you back on the field quickly but to keep you off the injury list in the future.
