Aims to return an injured player to training or competition with no risk of complications or re-injury. Your recovery time depends on the severity of the injury, effective management and accurate diagnosis. For some injuries, healing will take a couple of days or few weeks.
This occurs through adequate protection of the affected body part from more damage, some strain is applied to the affected area or injury, and this will lead to improving resilience of the repair.
Then after you feel well and all pain is gone, now you need some strength, condition and Muscular power to prevent re-injury.
Finally, you can return again to your training and enjoy your life normally with some precautions and instructions from the specialist.
All athletes over time, professional or not, are prone to injuries due to the excessive wear and tear associated with the demands of competitive sport.
The right exercise program to maintain strength, flexibility and stability can help athletes recover quickly after an injury, empowering them to resume athletic activities.
Recreational physical activities and competitive athletics account for a significant number of injuries. Musculoskeletal injuries are therefore an inevitable result of sport participation. Football has the highest incidence of catastrophic injuries, with gymnastics and ice hockey close behind. Tissue injury from sports can be classified as macro-traumatic and micro-traumatic.
These injuries can be primary (due to direct tissue damage) or secondary (due to transmission of forces or release of inflammatory mediators and other cytokines).
This type of injury is more common in sports such as swimming, cycling and rowing.
The process of rehabilitation should start as early as possible after an injury and form a continuum with other therapeutic interventions. It can also start before or immediately after surgery when an injury requires a surgical intervention.
The rehabilitation plan must take into account the fact that the objective of the patient (the athlete) is to return to the same activity and environment in which the injury occurred. Functional capacity after rehabilitation should be the same, if not better, than before injury.
The ultimate goal of the rehabilitation process is to limit the extent of the injury, reduce or reverse the impairment and functional loss, and prevent, correct or eliminate altogether the disability.
Physical Therapist Part
A physical therapist is a healthcare professional with extensive training in the musculoskeletal system. The therapist can work closely with athletes to assess muscle imbalance, range of motion and functional requirements of that particular sport. For example, a baseball pitcher may need a shoulder stabilization program and a basketball player may need a speed and plyometric (explosive strength) training program. The physical therapist can evaluate, identify, and plan a sport-specific injury rehabilitation program.
The main goal is to return an injured player to training or competition without putting the individual or others at undue risk of injury or re-injury. Physical therapists are the professional capable of using a safe; evidence based and educated approach to this challenge.
This sports rehabilitation process is criteria driven (not time driven). You must achieve certain levels of physical ability, criteria, before you can progress through the stages. You will be treated according to the various Phase of the injury process you are in at the time of coming to clinic and your rehabilitation process will begin there. Contact Us Now.
