One unfortunate downside of playing sports is sport injury. According to a recent research published in 2017,
“The time lost from sport averages 16.6 months, with inadequate rehabilitation protocols being documented.”
There are mainly 2 types of sports injuries which an athlete can suffer from-
Accumulative Injury- In reality, injury prevention starts much before the game by recognizing the weak link in a biomechanical chain and strengthening it. The weak links are muscle imbalances with one set of muscles weak, and the other compensating for it, getting overused; which builds up undue accumulative stress on certain structures over a period of time which later get injured. These structures can be identified through pre-participation screening.
As a specialized sports physiotherapy clinic we provide:
- Fitness assessment-strength, flexibility, endurance and agility
- Biomechanical assessment to identify the weak link in a body
- Strengthening of the weak link identified in pre-participation screening
- Sports specific training
- Sports specific individualized nutrition guidance
Traumatic Injury – Usually happens during the game. Such injuries require immediate treatment and the athlete often requires to be off-fielduntil he is fit to return to play. These injuries at times require to be operated upon along with post-operative rehabilitation.

Pelvis and Hip
- Hip Labral tear

To be not able to play can be very frustrating and demotivating for a sports person. Along with optimal and timely weight bearing on the injured area to minimize the side effects of immobilization, rehabilitation of an athlete requires more care, repeated encouragement and motivation by treating physiotherapist.
At PhysioActive, we are a team of compassionate sports physiotherapists, having comprehensive knowledge and experience in getting both professional and recreational athletes back to the game.We enhance your playing patterns bycombining hands on techniques like, mobilizations/manipulations, IASTM, sports taping and strapping, dry needling,electrotherapy, functional exercises; with the latest software and technology to improve your game. We ensure you have that correct movement pattern, functional control and improved sport specificplaying technique before you leave our clinic.
How are we different?
Our advanced rehab technologies ensure smooth transition from healing to rehabilitative stage allowing for an early rehabilitation and take you a step closer towards getting the strength back.
- Alter G- By reducing the effect of gravity, Alter G reduces the stress and loads on weak structures of legs while walking and uses the effect of treadmill.
- Sports Functional Training Device/Muscle Intelligencia- Allows activations of specific muscles during functional training.
- Manual therapy- mobilizations, manipulations
- Soft tissue release and balancing- IASTM
- Kinesiotaping/Rigid Taping
- Dry needling
- Bare-foot Training
- Functional Training
- Strength, Endurance and Agility training
Good training requires good nutrition and an individualized diet plan tailored towards specific sporting demand. Our nutritionist is an accredited sports dietician, Australia who can supplement your diet whether it is for faster healingor better performance at sports.
