Sports Physiotherapy Services in Downtown Edmonton
Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation
Physiotherapy for sports injuries enhances recovery and helps you resume sporting activities after an injury. Physiotherapy is suitable for every patient who aims to restore function in everyday life. Sports physiotherapy caters to sports enthusiasts who seek recovery and peak physical performance for regular sports activities.
At Trackside Physical Therapy, your physiotherapist has specific knowledge of sporting injuries, physiology and exercise programs to help recover and strengthen your musculoskeletal system so you can resume intense physical activity. We are also trained to recognize the inherent demands of high-intensity physical activity, and the common injuries that result.
All physiotherapy focuses on rehabilitation from injury, alleviating pain, and returning to normal activities of daily life. Sports physiotherapy helps patients with higher physical demands resume activities that require high-level performance.
The first step in sports physiotherapy treatment is a thorough assessment. Some performance exercises, strength testing, heart rate monitoring, endurance or flexibility assessments provide insight into your situation. Then, you follow from acute physiotherapy treatment into sports rehabilitation, which involves exercises aimed to build your strength and endurance.
Sports rehabilitation treatment stages start as low impact exercises like walking and stretching. Next, you add kinetic chain and higher impact exercises like running. Then, the next stage focuses on exercises specific to the patient’s preferred sport. Finally, a prevention strategy review.
