WHAT IS AN ATHLETIC SCREENING?

Athletic Screenings involves targeted tests of muscle lengths, strengths and assessment of sporting technique that are relevant to the sport the person is participating in.

They allow factors predisposing an athlete to injury or a performance hindrance to be highlighted and corrected.

Screenings can also involve the use of sport specific fitness testing to ascertain the athletes’ preparation for their sport.

Comparing the data from these tests to “normal” values and those that have been shown to pre-dispose to injury allows us to quickly identify areas of concern.

This is fed back to the patient and/or coach is an easy to digest format that allows all parties to realise the areas that need to be worked on, with corrective exercises provided.

WHAT SORT OF INFORMATION CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE?

CAN WE CATER FOR LARGE GROUPS AND SPORTS TEAMS?

This is exactly what we specialise in. We take school groups and sporting teams through this process and all parties find it an invaluable experience.

It is an ideal thing to do during a pre-season period for your sport, when you are most likely to be able to find the time to do the testing, but also implement the corrective exercise routine.

This becomes a very cost-effective way of getting high quality assessments, maximising the time we put into it.

We are capable of accommodating large groups at either of our practices, but can also go off-site to your club or school location to make it more convenient for your athletes.

If you want to undertake an individual screening, or discuss the option of having your school team or club team undergo an Athletic Screening, then call our friendly reception at West Active to organize an appointment with our Sport Physiotherapists.
