For athletes and sports enthusiasts, an injury can break your routine and stall your performance. However, there is no need to be pessimistic.

Pain is not the end of the line. You can break free from pain by receiving appropriate treatment from one of the physiotherapists in St. Albert. We at Advantage Sport Medicine are ready to help. Highly trained and experienced sports physio experts in St. Albert help athletes and physically active individuals perform better by enabling them to be more resilient against pain.

Do you often experience pain? 

An injury shouldn’t be something to second guess on. A sports physiotherapist can assess the nature and extent of the injury and from there, apply methods to alleviate the pain by taping specific part of the body, using cold or hot packs, or even dry needling to lift muscular tension. Compared to an untrained and inexperienced person, physiotherapy experts will let you know where the pain is coming from and how to treat it.

We offer various Physiotherapy services for the all-around athlete, such as:

  • Strength & conditioning

Do you find yourself injured all the time?

It is not enough to have access to immediate pain relief once you succumb to injury. It is more important to be less vulnerable to injury to maintain the rigorous routine you need to keep achieving your fitness and performance goals. At Advantage Sport Medicine, our multi-disciplinary team analyzes how your body reacts to pressure and exertion and determine your weak and injury-prone areas.

After identifying your weak spots, we can provide strength training suitable to your specific sport so that your body will become less susceptible to injury. Staying healthy and injury-prone requires regularly consulting with a physiotherapist. Our excellent physiotherapists can recommend manual therapies like manual resistance training, stretching, and joint manipulation as well as exercise programs to strengthen muscles and retrain your posture.

Avoiding surgery

Surgery isn’t the trump card to save you from a life of pain and restore your full functionality. It should be your last option. Instead, good physical therapy should be the first option when it comes to correcting or minimizing orthopedic injury. Physical therapy should also be preferred to surgery when correcting partial strains or tears.

Enhancing sport performance 

When the body is pain-free, the athlete is more relaxed and pumped up. A pain-free body can move with more variety and perform a broader range of motion to amp performance. If you are in stable physical form, you can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Taking a proactive role in your physical fitness can give you the champion mentality necessary to reach your full potential as an athlete.

Multi-specialty and comprehensive rehab programs

Pain and injury are two of life’s biggest challenges to the human form that are experienced uniquely by individuals. This is why there is no one size fits all approach to the treatment of pain. At Advantage Sport Medicine, you will be working with a diverse team composed of the physiotherapists, kinesiologists, athletic therapists, and physicians, who will develop a focused plan to identify your areas of weakness and from there, structure activities that can enhance strength so you can get better and perform better.
