Why are we called a Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic?
Beaumont Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic is comprised of an expert staff who have trained in physical rehabilitation medicine, anatomy, physiology, exercise prescription and biomechanics and have many years of experience applying evidence based science to building better athletes across all sports. We offer education, assessment, treatment prescription and consulting services to support and improve performance in athletes whether it is for injury prevention or rehabilitation.
Assessment involves the use scientifically supported techniques to establish an understanding of an athletes’ strengths, weaknesses, and imbalances. Our staff then design a science-based individual prevention or treatment program to limit injury risk, allow safe return to play following injury and optimize the performance of an athlete. This includes the prescription of a very personalized physical therapy and rehabilitation training program to correct biomechanical deficiencies and to optimize relevant sport-specific needs. We also offer off-season performance and injury prevention training.
Physical Therapy combines aspects of manual therapy with biomechanical assessment and then correction via education and sport-specific exercise. Often we hear of athletes being treated with only “passive treatments” such as rest, electrical stimulation, heat/ice and ultrasound without any focus on active correction of movement imbalances. We utilize manual therapy while actively correcting biomechanical dysfunctions and optimizing return to play.
At Beaumont Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic we have physical therapists, kinesiologists and massage therapists to help in the assessment and treatment of an athlete. Our team have worked with many amateur and elite professional level athletes. Amateur athletes during the very important developmental stages of sport such as minor hockey up to Junior levels, require close attention as they physically develop and often sustain injury that can affect their future in the sport. Professional and Olympic level athletes require very sport specific training and rehabilitation to ensure successful return to a season/competition and in a timely but safe manner.
Over many years of experience in treating elite athletes, Beaumont Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic has developed relationships with international brands such as Nitro Snowboards, Sigvaris Compression Socks and Don Joy bracing.
