When you book an appointment with JOB Physical & Sports Therapy, you are normally booked in on the hour. As your injury is important to us, you will be treated as a stand alone treatment – this way, potential delays are avoided and your time with us is spent entirely in treatment.
The treatment process begins with a questionnaire on your injury history/circumstances and certain medical conditions relevant to your record. Doctor’s referral is studied and explained.
Following the initial screening of the injury, you are assessed by way of visual examination, then through passive, active and resistive movements, establishing strength and range of movement.
Based on the results of your assessment, a treatment plan is outlined for you. Your injury will be explained to way of a 3D image, chart and diagram.
Depending on the nature, time and area of your injury, a program of combined therapy treatment will be designed, including all or some of the following: Heat; Ultrasonics; Euro-therapy; Interferential; Friction; Neurotech and G5 Mechanical Massage. Taping or Strapping may be applied.
A program of advanced stretching to attain improved range of movement, proprioception to increase balance, strength and exercise relevant to your activity, is designed following the treatment process. All exercises and drills are demonstrated and supervised and can take place in a suitable location of your choosing, should that be your preference.
