Fairfield, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2015 -- Individuals seeking treatment and pain relief will find help for sports injuries at Fairfield Physiotherapy and Sports Centre . Sports injuries require specialised care, treatment and management to avoid dysfunction and future problems. Physiotherapy treatment and management has had a long association at the practice, providing services to recreational, amateur and professional athletes.
The practice treats patients of all ages, from children to seniors. The most serious sports injuries are associated with vigorous contact activities, but even an injury sustained during less dynamic endeavors can result in significant pain and dysfunction if left untreated. The practice's professionals develop an individualized treatment and management plan for each patient to accommodate their injuries, goals and any prior injuries.
The clinic takes a whole person wellness approach to treatment, rehabilitation and management that incorporate the patient's participation in the wellness process. The underlying cause of pain and dysfunction is treated, not just symptoms. Techniques may be used as stand-alone solutions or combined with other therapies depending upon the individual and the nature of the injury.
Joint mobilisation is used to reduce pain and stiffness, or when the patient isn't able to fully participate in the treatment. It may be combined with muscle reeducation to improve control and strength, along with exercise programs to improve mobility and flexibility.
Therapeutic massage and dry needling provide relief from pain and directs circulation where it's needed most. Massage works with the body's own healing abilities to accelerate the process. Core stability training is a technique used by elite athletes to help prevent injuries and the same expertise is available at Fairfield Physiotherapy.
Postural advice and education play an important role in recoveries and preventing injuries. The physiotherapy professionals provide ergonomic and workplace assessments to prevent stress and strain on muscles and joints. Gait assessments are effective in identifying and correcting movement problems that can create or exacerbate injuries.
