Running Assessment

Running is one of the easiest and most common ways to stay fit. Unfortunately, running injuries are common and can affect the hips, knees, ankles, and feet.   A running gait assessment can help to reduce the risk of injury by exploring any biomechanical insufficiency that may predispose you to injury.  Through digitally capturing your running gait frame by frame, we can identify areas that could lead to injury and effect your sporting ability.  Equally as important, we look at your training loads in order to ensure your body’s capabilities match the demanded load.

Cycling Clinic

Cycling is a fantastic low impact form of exercise that can be used at almost any age and any level of fitness.  However, research has found that approximately 85% of cyclists will get injured, with the main areas being knee, neck and shoulders and lower back.  Physiotherapists are uniquely placed to provide a comprehensive ‘bike-fit’ by using their extensive knowledge in anatomy and physiology.

A ‘bike-fit’ extended physiotherapy consultation

involves a thorough assessment of biomechanics both on and off the bike.  Following this, we can identify areas where the cyclist will benefit from specific rehabilitation exercises and areas where adaptations need to be made on the bike.  The result: a complete bike and body fit-out tailored to you, ensuring that your body and bike work seamlessly together to avoid injury.

Whether you are looking for comfort while cycling with the kids or looking to improve your efficiency and race results you can be confident that we can help you reach your goal.

During the 90 minute

session we will digitally assess your cycling technique and biomechanics on and off the bike, along with any injuries you are carrying. Your consultation will include:

  • Cycling specific questioning
  • Musculoskeletal screening
  • Static examination on the bike looking at current bike set-up and measurements
  • Video analysis of your cycling technique
  • Adaptions to bike **
  • Rehabilitation / management plan
  • Advice on exercises and stretches to assist your performance.

** we work closely with the local bike shops should you need a specific bike part to improve your fit**

Pitch-Ready

 

Pitch Ready is an innovative system that tests an athlete’s physical performance capability, with a focus on returning to sport following injury. The use of advanced technology and extensive industry research enables accurate insights into individual injury reduction strategies and rehabilitation analysis, allowing athletes to confidently return back to sport.

Key injuries Pitch Ready is most suitable for are:
• Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
• Knee injuries
• Groin and hip injuries
• Ankle injuries
• Lower limb tendon pathology.

Pitch Ready can be utilised for both the elite and non-elite athlete, including youth and open age players from a multitude of competitive sports. As Pitch Ready is focused on injury reduction and functional ability in sport, this testing can be aimed at athletes pre-injury to prevent the risk of injury and also post-injury to maximise recovery potential with a successful return back to sport.

Pitch Ready involves capturing real-time data from clinical, performance and biomechanical testing which generates a report highlighting key, actionable insights to help guide decision-making and rehabilitation management. This rigorous system provides:
• Research-derived and validated injury reduction strategies
• Cutting edge biomechanical risk analysis
• The ability to maximize rehabilitation efficiency
• Feedback on appropriate safe return to sport

FAQ

Q. I have been doing my rehab elsewhere – can I still do a ‘pitch ready’ test?
A. Yes! We will ensure to get a full handover from your treating physio with regards to your injury. Once the test is completed, you and your physiotherapist will receive an in-depth report of the results along with rehab specific focus areas.

Q. At what stage can I complete a test?
A. This will depend on your specific injury and the stage of rehabilitation you are at. You can discuss this with a member of our team or with your physiotherapist/orthopaedic specialist if you have been receiving rehabilitation elsewhere.
