Sports Therapy in Sudbury
When it comes to injury and injury prevention, athletes have specific needs that may differ from other patients. This is why many physiotherapists have a specialty degree in sports therapy. At Brady Physiotherapy, we address all your sport therapy needs. Whether you are simply looking for wisdom and advice in prevention techniques, are experiencing muscle pain and are in need of exercises, or require intensive rehabilitation from a sports injury our professionals can help. We know that for you, getting back in the race or the game is very important and we will work to get you on your way.
Using a wide combination of techniques such as manual therapy, massage therapy, exercise therapy and acupuncture our therapists will assess your injuries and create a custom plan for you. Rehabilitation from a sports injury can be a long, arduous process which can also take its toll emotionally. We understand that as an athlete, it is difficult to sit out and not be able to fulfill those functions in which you thrive. At Brady Physiotherapy, you will not only find excellence in our skills as therapists but also compassion and patience to help you along the process of recovery.
Proper physical education goes a long way to preventing sport related injuries. From proper warm up and cool down exercises to recognizing strain on certain muscles before they give way to injury, this is critical for serious and even occasional athletes. At Brady Physiotherapy, we feel it is our obligation to teach, learn and share any information and/or tips related to healthy living. For our part, we are constantly seeking new knowledge and techniques to pass along to our patients. The learning process is never done, and we recognize that it is integral to our clinic as well as to the overall health and well-being of everyone who walks through our doors.
Kinesiology taping is a non-pharmaceutical therapy method that has become increasingly popular and is being incorporated as an important component of physiotherapy treatments. It involves the use of specially designed elastic tape with water resistant and breathable properties that enable long wearing and comfort. The elasticity of the tape allows it to stretch and move with your body, like a human muscle. Your muscles are not only responsible for body movement but also help regulate blood circulation, lymph blow, body temperature, etc.
The tape is applied over the muscles in order to reduce pain and inflammation, to reduce muscle tension, and to provide support and stability to your joints and muscles while maintaining your full mobility. The special application technique also raises the skin, creating more space between damaged tissues. This improves the flow of lymph fluid and blood circulation, which stimulates the healing process.
Concussion Management Therapy
What is a concussion?
A concussion is a form of brain injury that causes an alteration in brain function. It is a result from a direct or indirect blow to the head, face, or jaw. Concussions can present a wide range of symptoms and recovery times meaning that it’s unsuitable to employ a single approach to rehabilitation. This variability has created a need for objective baseline testing protocols that can be used to track a person’s recovery time.
Concussion Management Protocols
Cognitive testing is a recommended component of baseline and post-injury concussion management protocols and is designed to assess:
With athletes in particular, pre-season testing is recommended. This includes an assessment of balance, and visual function. Obtaining both baseline and post-injury scores provides valuable information when determining recovery time.
