INJURY PREVENTION SCREENING
Throughout my career, working with both military personnel and athletes, I noticed the same over-use injuries kept on presenting in clinic. These overuse injuries are all preventable!! There are several reasons why an athlete or soldier will sustain a preventable injury, these include:
- Lack of mobility & flexibility
- Lack of robustness
- Lack of functional strength
- Lack of mental and physical preparation
- Over-training/poorly structured training patterns
- Reaching the end goal too quickly
- lack of body awareness and single leg control
As you can see above, these can all be targeted to prevent an injury from happening. These overuse injuries occur most commonly at the start of training season or during recruit training. However, without an injury prevention screening assessment how are you to know where you are lacking and at risk of injury?? It is exactly that reason why these screening assessments are a necessity! Every athlete or recruit wants to be at the front, not lagging behind because of an injury you are trying to hide or because you did not prepare enough.
From my extensive experience in this field and the long term effects these injuries can have on body health or career, my passion is to stop these from happening! I offer injury prevention screening assessments to sport athletes and any military recruit prior to starting training. The assessment includes looking at the above areas to search out any deficiencies you might have and based on the findings you will be given a specific exercise programme and treatment plan as required.
Proven results from my injury prevention methods include reducing the injury rate at 40 Cdo by 40% after implementing some simple and cost effective measures.
