Many sports injuries are preventable. LifeCare’s Musculoskeletal Screening Assessments are designed to identify potential problems before they occur, and determine how to enhance performance.
Whilst Musculoskeletal Screening is used in to assess athletes in elite sport, it is perhaps even more valuable in the growing athlete. As a child grows, their body shape, strength, coordination and flexibility change as well. Musculoskeletal Screening helps find problem areas, thus allowing correction of imbalances before they become more significant, and lead to injury.
- Medical history
- Posture and alignment
- Soft tissue flexibility and strength
- Active movement analysis
- Strength and endurance
- Sports specific testing
Following Musculoskeletal Screening you are provided with information about any potential problems and how to address them. This could be as simple as a basic stretching or corrective exercise program, or it may include further assistance from the appropriate Physiotherapist, Sports Medicine Doctor, Podiatrist or other health professional.
