Sports Treatment Techniques

Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy refers to the use of skilled hand techniques to mobilize either the joints, soft tissues, muscles or fascia and skin to facilitates repair and tissue modelling. These manual techniques can stimulate the pain gates system within our neuro-musculoskeletal system; reduce nociceptive activity within the injured musculoskeletal environment or reduce intra-articular or peri-articular pressure to relief pain and improve pain-free range of motion.

Exercise Programmes For Injury Rehabilitation And Injury Risk Reduction

Our physiotherapists utilize various types of exercise prescription and techniques (including yoga, Pilates, functional movement training) or various types of exercise equipment such as resistance band, weights, straps etc, to target at improve mobility, Strength, balance or movement control to get you back to your full functional capacity.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation For Full Return To Sport

Anyone who has undergone surgery knows that the road to recovery can be long and difficult. The good news is that physiotherapy can play a vital role in helping patients to recover from surgery and return to their previous level of activity.

Through a combination of exercises, stretching, and massage, physiotherapy can help to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and promote healing. What’s more, physiotherapy can also help to prevent the formation of scar tissue. As a result, patients who undergo physiotherapy after surgery are often able to return to their previous level of activity more quickly and with less pain.

Non-Surgical Management And Injury Rehabilitation

Injuries can occur anywhere at any time. It is important to get the right kind of rehabilitation to ensure a full and speedy recovery. Physiotherapy is a type of non-surgical management that helps patients regain movement and function following an injury. At BMJ, our physiotherapists help you to reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation while promoting recovery.


Functional & Injury-Specific Tests And Assessment

This professional assessment is purposed for determining a safe return to training, sports participation, and competitions. A sports injury assessment is a process used to determine if an athlete is physically capable of returning to their sport after sustaining an injury. This may include tests such as range of motion testing, strength testing, and flexibility testing. Only when the athlete has fully recovered from their injury and has met all medical clearance criteria should they be allowed to return to training and competition.

Sports Taping and Bracing

We are trained in various taping techniques ranging from rigid taping, kinesiology taping, and functional and dynamic taping.

Gait Analysis Or Functional Movement Assessment And Corrective Strategy

Gait analysis is the study of human movement during walking. It is also known as functional movement assessment. The main purpose of gait analysis is to identify movement abnormalities so that corrective strategies can be implemented. Gait analysis can be used to assess a person’s risk of developing injuries, and for improving rehabilitation outcomes.

Injury Prevention

Our physiotherapists also have a role in injury prevention. There are several injuries (including ankle sprains, anterior cruciate ligament tear and muscle injuries) for which the risk can be significantly reduced if a specific injury prevention program is used. These programs are typically not time intensive and can actually improve sporting performance as well.

Specific Sport Musculoskeletal Screening for sport performance enhancement

We conduct musculoskeletal screening and physical enhancement programs to prevent injuries and maximize sports performance.

A musculoskeletal screen is an assessment process aiming to identify potential problems that may predispose an individual to the risk of injury.

Our screening assessments are designed accordingly to the particular sport or individual. A customized detailed report with recommended exercises and advices will be provided after the screening has been conducted.

Dry Needling

Dry needling for sports injuries may help reduce pain and inflammation, improve blood circulation, reduce anxiety and relieve tight muscles.

Dry needling can be used for tendinopathies, muscles strains and chronic pain. Though each treatment is custom tailored to your specific needs and it may be used alongside with other treatment techniques to deliver best results.

Electrophysical Agent Therapy

Our electrotherapy in sport, are the radial Shockwave therapy (ESWT) and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).

Real Time Ultrasound Assessment and retraining

Real time ultrasound physiotherapy utilizes an ultrasound machine to assist with the assessment and treatment of certain conditions. It provides real time imaging by transmitting sound waves through the body. These sound waves are then reflected by tissues in the body to create images on the screen for us to interpret.

The benefit of real time ultrasound physiotherapy is that it allows you to see how your muscles contract whilst performing certain exercises to give you an instant feedback on how your muscles move and can be an extremely useful tool for retraining correct motor patterns.
