Is back pain getting you benched?
There is no worse feeling than being benched due to injury. We know very well how back pain strikes the sports-inclined and physically active. Some of the professional athletes we work with have reported back pain from diving, golf, gymnastics, weightlifting, golf, hockey, football, andmore. Men and women athletes suffer from back pain. It chooses no gender.
Don’t let your back pain escalate. The more you let it linger, the harder it is for you to bounce back from injury. Let our highly qualified and multi-disciplinary team of experts draw up a game plan so you can hit the courts in no time. Sports physio experts in St. Albert can perform manual therapy strategies, including mobilization and manipulation of joints, soft tissue releases, posture correction, and stretching exercises to help manage your back pain.
How does sports physiotherapy work?
There are three basic steps we can make sports physiotherapy work for you.
First, you need to get evaluated. The initial assessment allows us to pinpoint the problem so we can plan the next steps. We triage you and do an evaluation of your injury. You get your first treatment during this stage, too.
No two sports injuries are alike. At Advantage Sport Medicine, our team of experts create a customized treatment plan for you based on the results of the initial assessment. A host of sports physio techniques and care may be included. If necessary, we can make a referral to a specialist nearby.
Of course, after-treatment care is essential to sustain your rehabilitation and recovery. Depending on your level of injury, a patient’s post-treatment plan may include exercise programs, such as balance exercises, stretching, and strengthening techniques, needling, manual therapy, or soft tissue techniques.
