Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.
The initial examination starts with a short introduction to patient’s current injury/issues/concerns etc. If patient have injury causing pain we will use special tests to diagnose the damaged structure or assure about previously stated diagnoses. Every consultation will also include postural analysis (limitation in posture) and FMS testing (Functional Movement Screening). This testing will help us to recognise vested moving patterns which might lead to the current injury or in prehab phase could help to limit possible injuries caused by repeating of these patterns.
Based on these informations the therapist will recommend further steps to achieve client’s goal.
Rehabilitation itself will be based on the previous examination and will be planned individually for each client. These sessions are taking into account stage of injury, and current state of the client. Rehabilitation session can also include electrotherapy equipment such as NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation), EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation), K-taping, soft tissue techniques, mobilization techniques, etc.
