sports rehabilitation

What is
sport rehabilitation?

With any sport comes the risk of an injury. Sports injuries occur daily and range from minor to major injuries that could keep you from your passion.

If you get an injury, it is important to have it checked right away to prevent further damage. This is where sports rehabilitation comes in to help.

Sports rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy that treats people of all ages who have musculoskeletal system pain, injury, or illness. With the use of exercise, movement, and therapeutic interventions, sports rehabilitation helps maintain health and fitness and helps you recover from injury and reduce pain.

At Fitlife Sports Massage our goal is to return patients to their highest level of function tailoring a program to be sports-specific ensures that return to activity is as smooth as possible and reduces the risk of injury recurrence.

After assessing your injury, we create a highly personalised and sport-specific treatment program and exercise plan (where appropriate) to ensure that you can return to doing what you love as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of sports rehabilitation?

  • Prevents recurrence of injury
  • Assists with joint stabilisation
  • Prevents need for unnecessary ongoing adhoc health treatment
  • Common sports injury
  • Patello femoral syndrome
  • Tennis / golf elbow
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Hamstring tears or tendonitis
  • Adductor strain
  • Rotator cuff injury (probably one of the most common).
  • ACL tears occur when there is a tear or sprain in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), one of the major ligaments of the knee. ACL injuries occur during a sudden stop, change of direction, jumping, or landing. This injury is common in sports such as soccer, basketball, football, and skiing.
  • Sprains occur when bands of fibrous tissue connecting two bones called ligaments stretch or tear. The most sprained area is the ankle.
  • Strains are different from sprains. Strains occur when there is an injury to the muscle or tissue that attaches muscles to bones.
  • Shin Splints refer to pain along the tibia, the large bone in front of your lower leg, also known as the shin bone.
  • Tennis Elbow is tendon inflammation in the elbow caused by overusing the forearm muscles.

We can provide soft tissue support for all of these injuries and more.
