About Sports Rehab

Sports Rehab is a safe therapeutic approach focused on helping individuals manage symptoms, return to normal function (or pre-injury state), and enhance sport/activity performance.

No matter if you are a professional athlete, a competitive player, or a recreational athlete, you all have the same goal: to achieve a full return to performance as soon as possible, with a minimal risk of re-injury.

Sports rehab consists of targeted exercises to:

  • return to pre-injury function
  • reduce mobility restrictions
  • prevent re-injury or worsening of the condition 
  • optimize performance
  • education on gait, posture, form of movement

Back in Motion Health Sports Rehab team (Physiotherapist and/or a Kinesiologist) will perform a full physical examination of your biomechanical alignment, joints, ligaments, muscles/tendons, and nerves to determine a precise diagnosis of your injury and measure the extent of any damage.

Our trained clinicians will review your history to identify any potential training errors, as well as prescribe a sport-specific strengthening and stretching plan, necessary to prevent recurrence of injury.

Treatment options may include:

Graston Technique

Exercise Prescription

Shockwave Therapy for chronic recurrent problems

Athletic Taping

Neuromuscular Stimulation for “slow-to-fire” muscles

Before Your Appointment

If there are any specific preparations required for your appointment, you will be advised prior to your appointment day.

Your First Appointment

In your first appointment, your Physiotherapist will do a comprehensive assessment, provide you with a diagnosis and share your treatment plan, which will include pain-management techniques, education, guidance and prevention. As able, your treatment will also include a gradual plan to return to hobbies, physical activities or sport.

Subsequent Appointments

Your Physiotherapist will perform an assessment to verify progress and check how the treatment and exercise plan is working for you. The treatment in each session will be determined by your Physiotherapist based on your treatment plan and goals. Techniques and modalities in your treatment plan will be chosen accordingly to clinical findings and condition progress. Your Physiotherapist may also suggest including a Kinesiologist in your treatment team, if more in-depth strength and conditioning is needed.

At the end of the session, you will be reminded to book your follow-up appointments, when needed. You may do that with your clinician, call one of our locations, or book online.

After Your Appointment

You will receive subsequent exercises and educational materials (if applicable), and exercises to perform at home between appointments.
