How do we treat Sports Injuries?
Our first goal is to do the right treatment at the right moment to help you to recover as fast as possible from your injury.
We know how much is important for you to go back quickly to your sport or physical activities, but this requires a very professional and precise assessment.
This will be done during the initial session starting with a thorough case history assessment, and followed by a very precise physical examination.
The main goal of this assessment is to understand the degree and the underlying causes of your injury in order to propose you the best possible treatment plan.
Generally, our first sessions stay focused on the symptoms and on the location of the injury. Nevertheless, if the assessment reveals that other regions of the body are involved in the process of the injury, the follow-up sessions may investigate and treat those ones, much further than the original location.
We offer a wide range of therapeutic procedures to treat and rehabilitate the patient but we emphasize a lot on:
Education and technical advices for each specific sport and injury, self-management strategies
The importance of increasing very progressively the load and intensity on the spot of the injury as well as the importance of going back step by step to your usual sport's volume
Massage, Manual therapy, hands-on approach
Muscle exercise prescription to increase control and strength and balance
Stretching program to enhance your flexibility
Taping, strapping, and bracing advice
Please note that in order to improve your condition and maximize your return to the best performances, we are able to use all the facilities offered by RETROFIT LONDON GYM facilities.
