Injury Therapy Services

body4life injury therapy services include:

  • Consultation & injury assessment: Your assessment begins with a detailed case history, together with appropriate functional tests to ascertain precisely the nature of your condition. It is not uncommon for the cause of the injury to be separate from the injury site and hence it is imperative to thoroughly evaluate both the injury site and relevant adjacent areas.
     
  • Diagnosis: Following assessment, your Injury Therapist will advise on your specific condition or conditions and discuss appropriate treatments with you.
     
  • Treatment: A range of treatment options including Ultrasound and Massage Therapy for both the injury site and any other affected areas are prescribed.
     
  • Massage: One of the most underrated tools, massage therapy provides numerous benefits including:
    • Removing the waste by-products of exercise and activity
    • Realigning damaged muscle fibres
    • Breaking down scar tissue
    • Improving circulation
    • Improving flexibility
       
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Ultrasound is extremely effective in treating the early stages of an injury or where other treatments are less suitable due to the injury position; eg: tendon injuries that pass close to bone. Quick, painless and totally non-invasive, Ultrasound is a powerful tool to help treat your injury and accelerate your recovery.
     
  • Rehabilitation: To successfully treat an in injury so that normal levels of activity can be resumed without risk of re-injury, the injured area must be stronger than before the injury occurred or else repeat injury is extremely likely. Hence, rehabilitation is key to complete your recovery.

Rehabilitation is a specialist discipline of it’s own and every body4life Injury Therapist is also a fully qualified Personal Trainer with an extensive background in exercise and conditioning. To help you fully recover from your injury, rehabilitation is essential and each body4life Injury Therapy Centre has comprehensive on-site gymnasium facilities enabling your Injury Therapist to provide you with a complete rehabilitation service.

body4life rehabilitation services include:

  • Specific conditioning exercises: Specific exercises will be designed for you that target the exact areas that need strengthening both at the injury site and also at other areas identified during your assessment.
     
  • Graduated training: A carefully structured programme of training, matched to the nature of your injury, your fitness levels and personal goals, will help you return to full activity safely.
     
  • Motivation: To help you maintain your focus as you build your fitness, your body4life Injury Therapist will ensure that you are continually motivated and help you progress towards your goals.
     
  • Developmental flexibility: Many injuries are caused by inflexibility problems, which can be resolved with assisted developmental stretches. With developmental flexibility training incorporated into your rehabilitation, you will find that previously tight muscles are more loose and supple and your body is more relaxed but more importantly, your likelihood of re-injury significantly reduced.
     
  • Ongoing assessment: Throughout your rehabilitation, your Injury Therapist will continually assess, evaluate and monitor your progress as you return to fitness.
