Chronic ongoing injuries
These usually occur because of one or more factors like technique, training schedule, and muscle imbalance, tight muscles, weak muscles or faulty biomechanics.
We endeavour to target the underlying cause of your injury rather than just patching up the pain and not really getting to the root cause of the problem. We will endeavour to identify contributing issues with a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment and/ or review of your training schedules and devise a treatment and management plan to resolve your issues.
This involves far more than just getting treatment and getting over the pain. It is imperative that strength, flexibility, muscle endurance and joint/muscle proprioception is restored so you can safely return to sport. We will give you guidance as to how much training you can do as your injury improves, what strengthening and stretching exercises you should be doing on a daily basis and liaise with your coach regarding a return to sport progression.
