SPORTS INJURY CLINIC

Fit For Life NI > SPORTS INJURY CLINIC

Injury prevention screenings, acute injury management, and sports performance training.

Fit for Life Sports Injury Clinic is a specialised branch of the clinic dealing with injuries and issues related to sports people and athletes.

Sports injuries are generally caused by direct impact or by overuse of a specific joint or muscle. We have excellent knowledge of diagnosis of injury within a sporting context. With an early accurate diagnosis, the injury can be appropriately managed with the latest evidence-based treatment techniques. Sport-specific movement patterns are broken down to the fundamentals and developed upon to return you back to your sport. We will enhance speed, agility, quickness drills, core stability, flexibility and specific skill demands for the given sport.

Sport physiotherapists are also able to screen athletes to identify any areas of weakness that may lead to an injury and can provide advice on how these areas can be corrected to prevent injury occurring. We understand when rest is not an option and tailor treatment around that. We take into account short and long-term goals.

Sports physiotherapy services are available to athletes of all ages and of all skill levels. Whether you have an acute injury, or one that is more chronic, we will help you to get back on the field as soon as possible.

A musculoskeletal assessment is designed to locate and correct the source of potential injuries. We will look at posture, symmetry, alignment, strength and flexibility. It’s important to remember that pain is a symptom, correcting the biomechanics will treat the cause of pain.

PHYSIOTHERAPY & REHABILITATION

Everyday aches and pains can quickly turn into a debilitating condition. It is always best to get advice and treatment sooner rather than later. This is particularly important if you are training for an event, early treatment usually results in a quick recovery.
