Sports screening 

We believe that prevention is better than cure, which is why we offer a specific screening package to highlight potential problems before they affect performance and increase injury risk.

Sports screening involves a number of specific tests that are used to highlight areas of imbalance in mobility and strength. The best way to assess the whole body for injury risks is to look at ‘functional movements.’ This may include a biomechanical assessment of your squat technique, or your ability to balance following a jump or hop. After identifying any imbalances, we can provide a bespoke training programme and specific therapeutic techniques to improve function, with the aim of enhancing performance and reducing the risk of injury.

Different sports demand different abilities from our bodies, which is why The Physio Lounge uses a specific sports screening programme for individual sports. Our sports physiotherapists have extensive experience in sports screening through their work in elite sports.

When would I need a sports screening session?

The majority of professional sports clubs screen their players for injury risks at the start of pre-season each year, in an attempt to minimise injury risk throughout the year. This can be an ideal time for you to have an ‘MOT’ to make sure you are ready for increasing the intensity of training, as well as competition.

However, you can have a sports screening assessment at any time; the point is to have an assessment before you get an injury, to help to reduce the risk.

What the treatment involves

The screening assessment will involve specific tests, depending on your chosen sport or needs. We start the screening session with a static Posture Screening application , taking images from the front, sides and rear. A more dynamic assessment will then include video analysis of certain movements such as a squat or overhead press, depending on the area of concern.

The use of Functional Movement Screening (FMS) equipment may be used during the assessment if your sports physiotherapist thinks that it will help.

Following the assessment your sports physiotherapist will then be able to provide you with a detailed report and bespoke rehabilitation programme, which may include exercises and advice for self-management. Occasionally, the screening assessment highlights areas that may benefit from further hands-on treatment, such as Sports Massage or joint manipulations.

Don’t wait for your next injury, act now to reduce the risks and improve your performance!

Our reviews

When I was booking an appointment on the phone, the person was very friendly and made sure I was booked in as soon as was possible. Subsequent alterations of booked appointments have been dealt with quickly and queries answered straight away. The initial assessment by Craig felt thorough and he made sure that all possibilities were explored for the cause of my knee pain, not just going on my my description of the symptoms. Also he took his time in explaining why I was getting knee pain and the importance of how all the muscles work together in your leg, it was an education. Also my exercise programme was very quickly put together which is easily accessible from the handy app. Overall I am very satisfied with my initial assessment.
The entire team at Physio Lounge provided a Very professional service through out from the very first contact with the administrative staff for booking the session (Kirsty and Izzy) and then a very professional clinical consultation with Craig who was really interested to get to understand my symptoms followed by a thorough clinical examination and thereafter the hands on therapy . He demonstrated and then asked me to demonstrate that I am following the therapeutic exercises appropriately which was then followed by a video of demonstration of the exercises that he emailed over to me to reinforce the exercise technique is correctly followed. I felt that Craig and his team provided me with a truly professional, non rushed ,dedicated service with patient care at the centre of the practice which has become a rarity these days .
"I only had 3 visits and I was impressed with the booking system and the app rather than paper exercises I’ve had on previous physio visits. When it was evident I wasn’t getting any better Tom arranged for further tests with an orthopaedic consultant and I was diagnosed and x-rayed within the week.
Thomas was an excellent, professional and friendly physio and I enjoyed the sessions and I have been left with some good exercises to carry on with.
Great first session with Craig today. You can't believe how one session can change your life with 2 years pain . Highly recommend.
Excellent, professional service, treatment plan for home on the app is excellent would highly recommend.
