Sports Screening

What Is Sports Screening?

The Sports Screening Program is useful for all athletes from the elite to the weekend warrior. Our Sports Screening Program is designed to identify an athlete’s risk of injury. It can be used to:

  • Screen athletes to minimise the risk of injury
  • Ensure injured athletes return to their sport with confidence

 

The type of risks may include:

  • Muscle imbalance
  • Poor core stability activation
  • Poor flexibility
  • Muscle weakness
  • Poor balance and co-ordination
  • Postural abnormalities
For the Injured Athlete

The tests in the Sports Screening Program can be used to focus on these risk factors when the physiotherapist is prescribing an exercise program. We will assess the injured athlete’s rehabilitation progress and ensure they are ready to return to sport.

 

Here at Everton Park Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre, we believe in treating the underlying cause of the problem. This ensures that we resolve the athlete’s symptoms satisfactorily and reduce the risk of re-injury. Get your teammates involved for an even better chance to win this season!

Who Else Is Our Sports Screening Program For?

The program is ideal for any athlete with previous injuries who wants to return to their sport with confidence as well as any athlete who wants to improve their performance on the field, on the court or in the gym. Our Sports Screening Program involves a functional movement assessment of:

Strength

Mobility

Flexibility

Stability

Co-ordination and balance

Real-Time Ultrasound

What Is Real-Time Ultrasound?

Real-time ultrasound is a device that allows your physiotherapist to view the core stability muscles as they contract. This provides an accurate assessment of the quality, timing and endurance of the stabilising muscle contraction.

 

Real-time ultrasound can also play a vital role in the retraining of these specific muscles. Patients are provided with visual feedback on whether they are correctly activating these deeper muscles. We provide the patient with different techniques for activating these muscles and then make sure they are using these muscles correctly. The real-time ultrasound can be applied while the patient is in different positions. For example, sitting for office workers and standing for check-out operators.

 

Our physiotherapists are able to assess the activation of the deeper muscle system of the hip joint and in the shoulder. Real-time ultrasound can also assess the dynamic stability of the rotator cuff muscle group.

Who Will Benefit from Real-Time Ultrasound?

Anyone who has lower back or pelvic pain will benefit from real-time ultrasound. At Everton Park Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre we use real-time ultrasound as part of our treatment regime for all patients who have either an acute episode of lower back pain or a chronic condition.

Role of Core Stability Muscles

The word core refers to the deep stabilising muscles of the trunk and pelvis. When these muscles activate in the correct manner they act like a corset, helping to stabilise and protect your lower back and pelvis.

 

Research has shown that dysfunction in the core stability muscles occurs in people with lower back pain and increases the likelihood of recurring lower back pain.

Digital Running Analysis

Running Assessment

Studies have found that up 70% of recreational competitive runners sustain injuries every year. The injuries associated with running are often produced or exacerbated due to poor technique, poor biomechanics during loading, training errors or the weakness of specific key muscle groups. Our Running Analysis is a digital slow-motion assessment of your running, combined with specific musculoskeletal screening tests to assess:

 

  • Running technique
  • Biomechanics during running
  • Key muscle group strength
  • Training load
  • Gait pattern
  • Shoe wear pattern and foot type

Consultation

The consultation also includes the solutions to reduce your symptoms during running and improve performance. These solutions are based on:

 

  • A comprehensive report of the analysis
  • Specific exercise programs designed to address key muscle groups for running
  • Technique correction
  • Running drills and patterning training
  • Training load modification

So whether you’re running on the treadmill, jogging for the love of it or competing in marathons or triathlons we can help you to reach your goals.

Pilates and Balance

Tailored Classes

Pilates was developed in the early 20th century as a system to strengthen the body and the mind. It is now one of the most popular forms of exercise in the world. The Everton Park Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy Centre provides intensive Pilates and balance classes that can increase your core strength, improve your posture and balance as well as enhancing your fitness. Pilates can also aid recovery from injuries and decrease your probability of future injuries.
