We have worked with the following organisations:
Injury Prevention & Screening:
Prevention is always better than a cure, and the risk of many injuries can be significantly reduced with the appropriate conditioning, training program, load monitoring and flexibility. Recent research has shown highly significant decreases in injury with specific rehabilitation programs.
In accordance with the latest research, we have developed an assessment and screening program which consists of a number of tests that are used at an elite level to identify:
- Areas that may impede performance or are at risk of injury
- Deficits in muscle power, endurance, flexibility and control
This includes a video analysis of your sport if appropriate (eg running, rowing, cycling).
These tests have been developed in collaboration with our association with:
- West Coast Eagles
- West Australian Institute of Sport
- Rowing Australia
- Cricket Australia
- Curtin University
- Australian Institute of Sport
We then provide a specific program aimed at both reducing the risk of injury, as well as enhancing athletic performance.
Our screens require roughly one hour to complete. Athletes should wear appropriate clothing to allow for full assessment (shorts for men, and shorts and a crop-top/bathers top for women).
Upon completion, you will receive a full report on the findings and conclusions from the screen and we will also liaise with your coach or physician at your request/ if appropriate to discuss the management strategies.
