At Integral, we are athletes ourselves, so we know how frustrating it can be to have a sports injury that prevents you from performing your best. Sports physiotherapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy, which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people. Sports injuries do differ from everyday injuries. Athletes require a high level of performance, which stresses their bodies to the limit. At our sports injury clinic located in downtown Edmonton, Integral physiotherapist’s help athletes recover from sporting injuries and provide education and resources to prevent future problems.
Sports physiotherapy at Integral
With sports physiotherapy, we’re focused on helping clients prevent and manage injuries caused by sports and exercise so they keep doing what they love. What are some other benefits of sport physiotherapy? Edmonton clients receive advice on how to safely exercise and participate in sports so as to avoid further injury, and enhance sports performance. We also offer sports massage here at Integral, to help relieve pain, improve range of motion, increase muscle tone and length, improve posture, and re-energize the body.
As an athlete, I have had my share of injuries over the years. I have always found Physio to be somewhat of a waste of time as they hook you up to a muscle stimulator machine and then have you do basic exercises that could easily be done at home myself. After my last hip surgery in September of this year, I went and saw Adam and it was a game changer for me! He knows exactly what he is talking about and actually worked on getting everything back to even better than I was pre-surgery. He doesn’t just operate from a Physio textbook, he has immense knowledge of the body and used it to make sure other parts of my body weren’t adding to the pain. The recovery was 10 times faster this time around thanks to Adam.
We understand that the nature of sport and daily life requires coordinated movement and full body strength, balance and enhanced mechanics to reduce the chances of injury and improve sports performance. Sports conditioning draws upon the characteristics of fitness and helps athletes move with greater efficiency and effectiveness. The goal is to improve an athlete’s ability to develop agile yet powerful movement patterns that will provide the tools for improved performance.
At our sports injury clinic, Edmonton athletes can benefit from a session with one of our physiotherapists, a sports massage therapist, and/or rehabilitation professional. Our team members are experienced and equipped with the knowledge needed to help address athletes’ deficiencies and improve their performance.
