When you go to see a physio, most likely you’re going because you’re injured and in pain. Initial pain relief is the priority. But for Precision Physios, this is just the start.
At Precision Athletica we have musculoskeletal pyhsios and sports physios on hand to give you a clear diagnosis of the condition, in order for you to understand exactly what is going on. From there, the priority is to address each of the causative factors contributing to the injury in the first place. This will help ensure that same injury doesn’t keep coming back, and doesn’t cause any other issues.
The aim is to help you get the most out of your training and perform better in your chosen sport.
1. Local assessment
We assess the local area of the injury initially to give you a clear diagnosis. We help you understand your condition so you know the best way to manage it.
2. Regional examination
Injuries don’t just happen out of the blue. We understand the reasons why your injury has happened and assess the other segments around your injury (e.g. if you have a knee injury, we’ll look at your feet, ankles and hips) to identify why this happened in the first place.
3. Selective Functional Movement Assessment
The SFMA is from the US, and is used to assess the whole body’s capacity for and quality of movement. This is the zoomed-out picture, to capture what other underlying issues are present, even if they haven’t caused pain for you yet.
We use the SFMA to give you a score for the MOBILITY tier of the PRECISION PERFORMANCE PYRAMID.
Every athlete experiences a little bit of denial when it comes to pain. No one wants to accept that they might be injured or to have to admit that they may need to a take some time to rest and recover. Unfortunately, ignoring the signals your body is giving you can result in more severe injury, greater levels of pain, longer injury and a more difficult road to recovery. Instead of letting denial dictate the next chapter of your athletic development, call Precision Athletica and visit our Sydney physiotherapy and sports injury clinic.
Our team includes numerous highly qualified and experienced physiotherapists. Our physios have worked with Olympians and other high-level professional athletes. They also work with local amateur athletes or hobbyists in the Sydney area. No matter your skill level or competitive goals, we can provide the physiotherapy guidance you need to recover from an injury and get back in the game as soon as possible.
Our process is focused on determining precisely what is going on in your body. Where is your pain localised? What is causing your pain? Moreover, what causative factors led to the injury in the first place? By answering these questions, we can not only reduce your pain and chart a course towards injury recovery, but we can also help you make sure that the injury will not recur in the future.
At best, pain takes the fun out of workouts and competition. At worst, it can take you out of play for months at a time. With our Sydney physiotherapy and sports injury clinic, you can plan for recovery today. Call Precision Athletica to get started.
