Effectively treating sport injuries
Our athletic rehabilitation clinic helps athletes reduce physical pain and regain their physical capabilities after an injury. We bring together the strengths of several complementary medical specialties to help treat sports-related injuries. By combining curative treatments from sports medicine with active rehabilitation techniques, athletes are able to recover quickly and get back on track.
Inovo Medical’s sports medicine clinic stands out because of its active rehabilitation approach. We use modern chiropractic and physiotherapy techniques that focus on restoring function by using the patient’s own physical capabilities.
We define ourselves as an evidence-based institution. Our team has specific intervention protocols for each type of injury. These protocols are assessed and updated regularly according to the latest medical advances. These advances are the basis on which our treatments are delivered, all while being adapted to the needs of each patient. At Inovo Medical, new technologies, like Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill, and 3D optical motion analysis are incorporated into our athletic rehabilitation assessments and treatment plans.
At Inovo Medical, we treat the person as a whole rather than a specific disorder; for example, a knee injury might also affect the foot, hip, and spine. Therapy can help treat a wide range of problems, including:
- Ankle sprain
- Groin pull
- Hamstring strain
- Shin splints
- Knee injury: ACL tear
- Knee injury
- Tennis elbow
After conducting an overall posture analysis of your joint and muscle mechanics, our experts work as a team to determine the optimal combination of treatments. The intervention may include chiropractic adjustments, exercises for back pain relief, sports medicine, a custom foot orthotics, as well as the use of an anti-gravity treadmill. Furthermore, our expertise in sports regenerative medicine enables us to deliver a broad range of innovative curative and aesthetic treatments.
1. POSTURE ANALYSIS
Before receiving treatment, an assessment is made, which includes a 3-d analysis* of your joint and muscle mechanics. A painful, defective mechanical part engenders very complex impacts on the rest of the body. Indeed, pain often results in a cascade of consequences that can lead to other physiological problems. That’s why it is important to have a reliable diagnosis in the case of sports and joint injuries. Our team assesses posture, flexibility, balance, gait, running, and the feet. Our cutting-edge electronic imaging systems yield a complete 3-D examination of the body and each joint segment in motion.
2. SPORTS MEDICINE INTERVENTION PROTOCOL
Once a diagnosis has been made, our team adapts a multidisciplinary intervention protocol involving curative and active rehabilitation treatments to the patient’s specific needs.
