Injury Prevention: We work to identify and address potential risk factors for injuries. We design and implement preventative exercise programs, provide education on proper techniques, and offer advice on injury avoidance.

Our physiotherapists have had experience working with professional sports teams and been involved with screening programs for injury prevention. They also have experience in dealing with acute injuries as well as ongoing chronic problems.

Rehabilitation: In the event of an injury, Health on Grange Physiotherapy will develop a rehabilitation program tailored to the specific needs of the athlete. These programs focus on restoring mobility, strength, flexibility, and function, helping individuals regain their optimal physical condition.

Pain Management: Health on Grange Physiotherapy employs various techniques to manage pain associated with sports injuries. This may include manual treatment, dry-needling, therapeutic exercises, and other beneficial treatment such as heat or cold therapy.

Performance Enhancement: Beyond injury management, sports physiotherapy also aims to enhance athletic performance. Health on Grange Physiotherapy works with athletes to improve their strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, and overall biomechanics, contributing to better sports performance.

Education and Awareness: Health on Grange Physiotherapy educates athletes about the importance of proper warm-up, cool-down and body mechanics. Where appropriate, we may also provide guidance on nutrition, hydration, and lifestyle choices that can impact an athlete’s well-being.
