Sports injury screening
Whether you enjoy a game of tennis on the weekend, are a professional athlete, or are a frequent visitor to the gym, no doubt you’ll know that a sports injury can put you out of action for an extended period of time. Here at LycaHealth Physiotherapy, we offer sports injury screening at our clinics in Canary Wharf, East London, and Orpington, Kent.
Sports injury screening at LycaHealth Physiotherapy is comprehensive, and quite unique. Sports injury screening and testing involves taking a full history of your training and injury history, and current physical state. Posture, flexibility, biomechanics and strength are observed and assessed.
The physiotherapist will examine your injury and use the most appropriate diagnostic screening – an ultrasound scan and/or an MRI scan – to establish the extent of the injury.
Our 3.0T MRI scanner is twice as powerful as standard machines, making it more meticulous and more likely to spot problems.
Once the injury has been diagnosed, your physiotherapist will create a bespoke treatment plan designed to get you back to full health as quickly as possible. Whether treatment involves chiropractic care, podiatry, osteopathy, or physiotherapy, your sports injury will be assessed, diagnosed and treated all at the same clinic by our expert registered therapists. Whilst we offer a full service from assessment, and diagnosis to treatment, we are also happy to work with your existing pain consultant if desired.
