SCREENING ATHLETES FOR IMPROVED INJURY MANAGEMENT & PREVENTION

Screening athletes involves gathering information about each individual's injury history and conducting a series of sport specific examinations to determine any deficincies in muscle strength, stability, control and length as well as joint structure, stability alignment and function that may contribute to an increased risk of injury.

Athletes should be screened at the earliest opportunity, prior to starting pre season training and well before joining a high level squad or team. This allows our Podiatrist to gain an in-depth understanding of the athletes musculoskeletal profile and therefore develop an appropriate training and exercise plan.

Sport specific screenings are individualised to ensure that the demands of each particular sport are assessed.
