Research into exercise and physical activity continually reveal new benefits to human health and longevity.
Hi intensity sport is a fantastic way to burn off youthful energy – or perhaps a way to keep that youthful feeling – but it does create injuries.
The first priority after a sports injury is to get an accurate diagnosis.
Physiotherapists are trained to examine injuries using a medical/orthopaedic rationale and give you the right advice.
The Bertram Physiotherapy model for sports injury treatment is simple:
- Examine and advise
- Protect the injury – Taping/bracing/careful exercise
- Treatment – Utilise the full range of physiotherapy interventions: massage/manipulation; electrotherapy and ultrasound; dry needling; exercise prescription.
- Rehabilitation – Strengthen the injured part, the whole body, and prepare for sport.
- Prevention – Correct imbalances, weaknesses and compensations. Reduce future risk. Perhaps even improve performance.
