Injury Assessment is one of the first stages in designing an effective treatment and injury rehabilitation plan.
Injury Assessment – Birmingham, West Midlands
Based in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham we offer a full injury assessment and injury rehabilitation service before looking at ways to help repair and rehabilitate your injury. This is probably one of the most important stages in designing an effective treatment plan, but more importantly actually understanding the true cause of your injury. Many therapists and companies who offer sports injury rehab will focus on the “pain” and this is not always the best way to start an assessment. The pain is usually the effect of another cause. Yes, we will of course treat the pain and rehab that particular muscle / ligament / tendon; however we need to understand how that injury has been brought on, as it could be down to posture, tight muscles in other areas or some form of deformity in a particular joint / bone. This is where LiveWell Health and our trained Level 5 sports therapists really excel above most other companies in this field.
As mentioned above, before we start on designing a plan to bring you back to sports / fitness, we need to go through a few stages to understand your injury and what caused it. Within our initial assessment we will do a number of things:
- Assessment of the affected area
- This includes range of motion, tenderness and special tests
- Strength tests on the surrounding muscles / ligaments / tendons
- Full body assessment
- Postural assessment
- Proprioception test
Once we have completed the assessment we will then know exactly which musculoskeletal issues surround you and the injury. This will give us a great understanding of how we can incorporate various treatment techniques alongside exercise and stretching, to give us the best outcome in terms of your overall recovery.
Our team of highly qualified therapists backed up by leading personal trainers is in a unique position to be able to offer aid in the recovery of the specific injury but to also provide you with ongoing support. This could be in terms of strengthening the affected and surrounding areas, as they may not be working as they should to prevent further injuries. This gives you the very best opportunity to take your fitness and health to the next level.
