At Fanti + Associates Physiotherapists, we realize our athletes want the active sport-specific therapy that they need.

They are motivated to follow through with exercise programming to help them get back to their active life more quickly, and they want education to help prevent the risk of injury.

In their downtime, many of our therapists are also personally involved in various sports programs in the Thunder Bay community, including hockey, soccer, basketball, sailing, and volleyball (to name a few).

We have experience in the sporting fields that helps us work with you to set goals and improve rehab programming following an injury specific to the sport you play.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sports Injury Physiotherapy Thunder Bay

During your first sessions, the physiotherapist will do a thorough assessment of the target areas and analyze movements regarding the activity or sports that you play. They will also inquire about your weekly workload, training program, and any competition you might expect soon. All this information goes a long way into providing a detailed insight into your health and body, which is critical in making decisions on the appropriate treatment plan for you.

Your sports physio focuses on individuals looking to improve their quality of life with athletics, exercises, recreation, sports, or any healthy physical activity. Sports and exercise physiotherapists at Fanti + Associates Physiotherapists team work with individuals at all levels and of all ages. They aid in the process of maximizing a patient’s potential through a variety of treatment techniques. Their roles include:

  • Physiotherapists are responsible for assessing the risks of an injury regarding the patient’s participation in physical activities or a specific sport or exercise. They then relay this information to the individual, athlete, or coach and train them for injury prevention.
  • Physiotherapists assess and manage a range of conditions related to sports injuries and then develop a custom treatment plan that will restore you to an optimal level of athletic performance.
  • A physiotherapist is equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately when injuries occur during training or competition.
  • Experienced physiotherapists have a role to play in providing evidence-based advice regarding an individual’s state and how to avoid the risks that come with specific injuries.
  • Physiotherapists improve the mechanics and strength of an individual’s body parts.
  • It is the duty of a physiotherapist to design an appropriate and realistic time frame to determine when an individual will return to sports.

You do not need an X-ray done before seeing a physiotherapist. The first session of your effective treatment plan will include a thorough assessment done by a registered physiotherapist that can fully determine the cause of your pain and what to do at your places of injury.
