Sports Fitness Programmes
Playing sport has always been an important part of life in New Zealand. The Ministry of Health physical activity guidelines recommend adults should do at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity at least five days a week, increasing for children and young people to 60 minutes. Participating in sport is a great way to meet those recommendations but there are some risks.
Physiotherapists are ideally placed to provide injury prevention strategies and rehabilitation programs to allow you to return to your sport.
A physiotherapy assessment can identify musculoskeletal issues that might make it difficult for you to participate in sport or might make you susceptible to injury.
Together, with the Physiotherapist, you can design a training program that suits you, to address those issues. Targeted training programs have been shown to make a substantial difference to the number of sports injuries that occur.
A Physiotherapist can also identify if poor breathing patterns are limiting performance and coach patients on how to improve their breathing control and sports performance.
If you have an existing injury, a physiotherapy assessment and rehabilitation plan can help your return to sport, sometimes stronger than you were before.
(Don’t forget, the cost of rehabilitation from a sporting injury can be covered by ACC or other health insurers)
If you would like more information please contact us to discuss your personal requirements.
Many Ways To
To see a Physiotherapist, you can call us, email us or just pop-in to the clinic. (You don’t always need a GP’s referral but, if you do have one already, that’s OK. Just bring it with you or have it handy when you call.) We will book you in with your preferred Physiotherapist (if you have one) for an initial appointment (usually 30-min).
