What does treatment at HQphysio involve for sports injuries?

The treatment of sports injuries consists of assessment, diagnosis and treatment techniques such as muscle release and joint mobilisation.

At HQphysio every session begins with a comprehensive assessment. Our gym facilities allow athletes to highlight the weakness in their techniques. Joints related to the injury are tested and assessed to see if they have problems with tissue integrity, strength, flexibility or control of movement. Once this assessment has taken place a treatment plan is put in place which will involve hands on treatment, exercise prescription and re-assessment of the problematic movement or activity.

After our detailed assessment of your injury we prepare a treatment plan for you involving the most relevant treatments to reduce the likelihood of an injury reoccurring. We have been treating sports related injuries for 13 years . The treatments we use at HQphysio Dublin include massage, dry needling, manipulation and a rehabilitation plan that is specific to your needs.
