Pre Season Screening
Jill** has no pre-existing issues to her knowledge and wanted to get a pre-season screening to address any areas that could help her physical preparation for the upcoming netball season.
An Athletic Performance Profile was conducted using
HumanTrak Testing demonstrated poor single leg balance and single leg squat ability.
ForceFrame Testing identified neck strength and hip strength as areas needing improvement.
ForceDecks Testing identified reduced reactive strength on Counter Movement Jump and the Hop and Return Test.
A specific program was prescribed for Jill to address the areas identified in her assessment.
** Not her actual name. This example is an illustration of how an Athletic Performance Profile can help and does not relate to a real person.
Unfortunately during the season Jill had a concussion, the baseline data collected from her pre-season testing was able to be used in her rehabilitation.
In particular, Jill's neck strength, single leg balance, single leg squat and hop and return test were key measures used to guide her recovery from her concussion.
It is important to also note that treatment of concussion covers other areas of assessment in addition to the above that needs to be provided by a medical practitioner or physiotherapist.
