Manual therapy can be practiced on all regions of the body.
Athletic Screening Pre-Season
The purpose of a musculoskeletal athlete screen is to develop a clinical picture of an athlete’s capability regarding their sport.
Athletes require strength, range of motion and co-ordination, not only to maximise their performance, but reduce the risk of injury.
During the screening process the athlete is asked to perform a battery of tests and the results of these tests are compared to normative values to identify areas which may place the athlete at risk of injury.
Injury prevention should be the top priority for all athletes to maximise their performance, and longevity of their sporting careers.
