For a successful return to your sport our rehabilitation regime will address the specific skills and physical demands of your sport whilst under the guidance of a Chartered Physiotherapist. Injury specific rehabilitation is a fundamental part of the rehabilitation process for all athletes, at all levels.
These 1 hour sports specific exercise sessions are held at The Bridgewater School’s purpose built sports facility in Worsley on a Tuesday evening between 7-8pm.
What is the aim of Sports Specific Rehabilitation?
Our aim is to return individuals to sport in the optimum physical condition following injury or surgical intervention.
The injured area and repaired tissues must be sport specifically “stress adapted” to prevent re-injury.
The benefits of Sport Specific Rehabilitation are achieved by the individual participating in specially designed sport specific rehabilitation drills.
These drills are controlled and progressed to mimic the movement patterns and recreate the stresses applied in an individual’s sport.
Sports Specific Rehabilitation will endeavour to:
- Improve sports specific flexibility
- Increase muscle strength, endurance and speed
- Develop Sports Specific skill demands
- Improve proprioception and balance
- Prevent re-injury
