REHABILITATION FOR OPTIMUM RECOVERY
What is Sport Rehabilitation?
Sport Rehabilitation is a process of recovering athletes from any sports injury, pain or illness. It helps decide when an injured athlete can safely be back to sport ensuring there is no risk of re-injury. All athletes at some point of time, professional or not, are inclined to injuries due to the excessive wear and tear. These are associated with the demands of sports training.
Types of Sport Injury:
- Ankle Sprain
- Groin Pull
- Hamstring Strain
- Shin Splints
- Knee injury
- Tennis Elbow
- Swollen Muscles
- Ligament tear
- ACL Tear
- Head Injury
These injuries are very common in sports like football, soccer, basketball, baseball, cricket, rugby, kabaddi etc.
Role of a Sport Rehabilitator:
Sport Rehabilitators are trained to cure these injuries through various techniques. The Rehabilitator decides when an injured athlete can safely be back to sport ensuring there is no risk of further injury. They have a strong focus on biomechanics, exercise rehabilitation, physiotherapy and returning injured sportsmen to a high level of function. Rehabilitators are trained to carefully record and protect all sensitive information relating to the injured athletes condition as part of their treatment session.
How is Rehabilitation done?
The first step towards recovery is getting an accurate diagnosis from the rehabilitator or strength and conditioning coach or physiotherapist. Ideally, the initial stage of treatment involves reducing pain and promoting healing. After pain and swelling reduction, progressive reconditioning treatment begins. Exercises are recommended including physiotherapy sessions and muscle strengthening to target specific goals such as mobility, flexibility training, coordination of balance and joint positioning.
