What is sports injury rehabilitation?
Sport injury rehabilitation was developed to get injured sportsmen in pre-injury physical condition within a short span of time. This therapeutic multi-disciplinary approach is responsible for prevention, evaluation and treatment of sport injuries. Sport or exercise therapists create a treatment plan based on target specific goals such as mobility, flexibility, coordination of balance and joint positioning. The initial phases of treatment are concentrated on reducing pain and swelling while promoting healing. Once the pain and swelling are under control, reconditioning treatment begins.
