Competitive fitness sports such as Crossfit, Powerlifting, Strongman and Bodybuilding have become very popular in recent years particularly in the Cheltenham, Moorabbin, Mentone, Highett, Hampton, Black Rock, Beaumaris and Heatherton suburbs. Whilst the training side can be better than other sports regarding injury due to the controlled environment that it is performed in there are still many injuries that can occur because the sport pushes the body to the threshold of what it is capable of. This is when you need to consult with a Physiotherapist or Osteopath to get the best possible advice on how to keep your training on track.
As mentioned previously these injuries occur usually because of an acute event or repetitive stress of working the body and lifting heavy weight at a threshold of what it is capable of.
What this means is that to effectively assess and analyse patients who require this demand of their body in their chosen activity you must be able to examine them in this environment.
At the Injury Rehab Centre We specialise in assessment and collecting actionable data using the latest technology previously only found in elite sporting institutions. This includes:
Next our treatment process achieves pain relief in the shortest amount of time by using hands on Physiotherapy and Osteopathy techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, articulation and stretching techniques. This may include the use of the True Stretch system as well as Dry Needling and Taping techniques.
Finally your management plan will involve an individualised training plan to build your strength and capacity (muscle and tendon strength, stamina, specific flexibility) often to improve discrepancies from side to side that could be predisposing to injury and decreasing performance.
If you suffer from Crossfit or Weightlifting related injuries such as low back pain, shoulder or rotator cuff injury, hip impingement pain, knee tendon pain, lack of ankle mobility etc contact the Injury Rehab Centre – Physiotherapy and Osteopathy in Cheltenham to join our Crossfit and Weight Lifting specific injury assessment and rehabilitation program.
