This involves the assessment of joint mobility and muscle strength to ensure that there are no specific weaknesses present that can lead to acute or chronic sports injuries or physical complaint.
Typically the musculoskeletal screenings performed at Rob Leather Physiotherapy consist of a range of joint mobility and muscle flexibility tests followed by muscle strength and endurance testing.
These screening tests allow the therapist to identify any abnormal patterns of joint movement or weakness within specific muscle groups. Results from the screening will be presented back to the participant in the form of an injury risk profile with the appropriate injury prevention exercise programme being prescribed.
The Musculoskeletal screening offered at the clinic are tailored for the sport and the level of performer.
