Wellnes Medical Center, as a leader in adopting an approach of multidisciplinary practice for sports injuries. Complementing the physical therapy practice is a range of integrated health services including massage therapy, workplace health and ergonomics, and athletic therapy, all in the convenience of a single location.
When an injury occurs an accurate diagnosis & prompt treatment are essential to achieve a good recovery & aid an early return to sport.
An untreated or poorly rehabilitated injury can develop into a chronic injury & be detrimental to the sport.
The main aim is to rehabilitate the injury as quickly and as safely as possible to return the individual to functional sporting activity.
The rehabilitation undertaken to recover from a sports injury will often engage a number of allied professionals. To correct or protect an injured joint or structure, orthotics and other protective devices may be constructed to assist the athlete in achieving optimal physical function.
The physical work required of the athlete to return to their pre-injury fitness often requires the athlete to learn a variety of stretching and flexibility exercises to rebuild or to improve an existing range of motion in a joint.
Here at our clinic you will be assessed for the nature and actual site of the problem and relate it to you as a whole, before we make a skilled diagnosis and provide treatment.
