SPORTS SCREENING and PREhabilitation
While prehabilitation as a term is not commonly used, the concept of using physiotherapy to prepare and condition your body for optimal performance has been used in elite sport for many years.
At North Curl Curl Physiotherapy we can help you get the most out of your sport by finding and fixing any movement dysfunction or weakness that may increase the risk of a future injury.
WHAT IS PREHAB?
Got an event coming up and want to start your training programme off on the best foot possible?
Do you need to ensure that an old injury doesn't threaten your progress as you prepare for the commencement of your sporting season?
Feeling like your body needs a tune-up before you launch back into competition?
Prehabilitation is the preventative physiotherapy treatment that you need to ensure your approach to sports or high activity is made under the best physical condition possible.
As opposed to rehabilitation, a prehab programme aims to identify and correct muscle or mobility weaknesses in your physicality before activity commences.
NCCP employ the latest evidence-based techniques and tools (such as the Zebris and ViMove mobility devices) to develop a prehabilitation programme to help you:
We have a team of physiotherapists that cover a range of commonly affected areas:
NCCP has onsite weights and resistance equipment to guide conditioning for individual sports or activity needs and we pride ourselves on our ability as a team to build a prehab programme for the full range of sporting requirements: attack, defense, team, individual, field, track, water.... we could go on....and on....
Feel free to call the clinic to discuss prehab programming with one of our physios and get a better understanding how prehab can get the most out of your training and sports performance!
By improving an individual's functional capacity through increased physical activity before an anticipated [activity], it seems reasonable to assume that the individual will maintain a higher level of functional ability and rebound more rapidly. Ditmyer, MM, Topp, R., Pifer, M. 2002
