Recovery from injury is critical to the successful return to normal physical activities. The scientific research has developed to such an extent that there are very clear messages about which strategies work and which ones don’t. Sports & Exercise Physios are experts at applying the most recent research to a structured recovery program. They understand normal movement patterns in humans and how best to achieve a gradual and safe recovery program. This approach is critical to prevent further re-injury and to address any underlying predisposing factors that might render a client more susceptible to future episodes. Furthermore, Mead’s Sports & Exercise Physios can communicate with other parties such as coaches, team managers, work places, insurers and medical professionals regarding appropriate timing of return to activities in order to successfully coordinate a return to a full active lifestyle.
