Everyone is unique, but our experience of working with athletes, runners and walkers means we can help you recover quickly from and avoid overuse injuries.
We begin by identifying the movement at the root of your problem and the tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones) that are causing discomfort. To do this we will undertake a detailed examination and may sometimes send you for x-ray, MRI or ultrasound imaging. If we do require imaging to support our diagnoses this can normally be arranged through your health insurer or with a local private hospital.
We also identify and secondary or 'sub-symptomatic' problems; this could be an abnormal movement or an inherent weakness. A treatment plan that only deals with the root problem could leave you vulnerable to further injury. By considering everything we aim to get you injury-free and keep you injury-free.
Once we have a treatment plan we manage different injury components individually:
We may invite you to come back to the clinic for occasional check-ups, to ensure you're not at risk of developing new injuries.
