How It Works
For sports patients we hope to provide improvement of performance, more rapid exercise recovery, stress resistance, prevention of injury, coordination improvement and retraining of poor form. To achieve this, we will use goniometry to assess passive range of motion (PROM), the joint motion and limitation of muscles/tendons, flexibility, intra-articular issues (meniscus or bone), joint capsule, pain, swelling. Gulick tape to assess muscle girth (used initially and to assess progress) and physical assessment to assess strength.
We may use some of the treatment options listed below well as manual therapy to help patients go into movement on their own and within their comfort level. With therapeutic exercise we will use physio balls, therabands, rocker boards and cavalletti poles and the land treadmill for front to back balance, endurance and strengthening. Once we have found a permanent location we will also have an underwater treadmill for strengthening, aerobic fitness and stimulation of neurological pathways
