Sports Injury

Management & Prevention

Sports Injuries are a part of Sport. When an athlete will push himself to achieve peak performance, there is always a risk of Injury. But many injuries can be prevented and managed effectively to prevent its recurrence. At PrimePhysio we believe in addressing the root cause of the injury …not just the area that hurts. Analyze why you are injured and give you treatment that not only address the causes of the injury but will also help you achieve a long-term permanent solution. There can be multiple reasons for your injury such as chronic issue elsewhere in the body, faulty movement pattern, muscle imbalance, and improper body alignment. All these factors need to be assessed for planning the ideal treatment plan.

We don’t want you coming to the physiotherapist forever. At PrimePhysio we are passionate about injury prevention and we do our best to ensure that the injury you have suffered does not recur again. We also run injury prevention programs and musculoskeletal screening programs so that we can identify an injury early and make sure you don’t have to stay away from work or sport for a long time.

Sports person will be given a priority appointment at the clinic. Kindly mention to the receptionist that you are a sports person for early appointments.

Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic

Joint Problems

Our bodies are designed to move. But due to changing lifestyle, obesity and sedentary nature of work we are experiencing a lot of pain. This is mainly due to reduced joint mobility and muscle flexibility. Pain can significantly affect your quality of life. You may be an IT professional, housewife, a recreational sportsperson. If you are injured or if you are in pain, it will significantly affect your productivity and performance. We at PrimePhysio will help you to get back to your previous activity levels and also assist you to perform better at your task without any pain.

Foot Assessment &

JPrescription Orthotics

Our feet are our foundation. Normal feet help to attain a good alignment of the entire body. Due to today’s hard walking surfaces and lack of shock absorption in the ground, our feet have to adjust to the ground. This leads to foot deformities and excess pronation (flat feet) in the feet, which further affects our entire kinetic chain of the body. Common symptoms of faulty foot alignment are heel pain, shin pain, knee pain and lower back pain. One of the main reasons for Knee arthritis in our country is prolonged use faulty footwear, which leads to excess foot pronation and early degeneration. Use of customized prescription orthotics will help a person to keep the body aligned and reduce the stress on the joints.

These programs may be gym based, home based or on field depending on the nature of your injury and your functional requirements.

At PrimePhysio , we believe in reducing your dependence on medication.

Exercise Therapy can help to reduce your reliance on medication, reduce pain and assure a functionally independent life.

We also specialize in designing exercise program for patients suffering from Diabetes, Hypertension, Cancer, Heart Diseases and other systemic illness.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling treatment involves insertion of small filament needles (acupuncture needles) in Trigger points. Trigger points are irritable, hard “knots” within a muscle that may cause pain over a large area, leading to difficulty performing daily tasks. In Dry needling, a very thin needle being pushed through the skin to stimulate a trigger point. Dry needling may release the tight muscle bands associated with trigger points and lead to decreased pain and improved function. Dry needling has various mechanical, chemical and neurophysiological benefits. Careful selection of patients and identification of the trigger points is important for this therapy to work. Normally 3-4 sessions in succession of dry needling may be necessary for relief of symptoms.
