At Galway Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre we have years of experience providing pitch side physiotherapy services.
Not only to many different teams in diverse sports such as soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, camogie, rugby and AFL but also in many different countries such as England, Australia, North America and Ireland.
We are very experienced and up to date in pre-match fitness testing, injury screening, mobility / soft tissue work, strapping and kinesiotaping; in-game First Aid, CPR, concussion and acute injury control.
We also provide post-match injury assessment and management, ongoing rehabilitation, return to play and re-injury prevention plans.
We regularly attend specialised training in First Aid, CPR and concussion protocols to ensure we are up to date and can provide the best care to your players.
At Galway Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre we have the advantage of a large rehabilitation area to implement the aforementioned rehabilitation, and return to play injury prevention plans.
Sporting bodies in Ireland including the GAA, IRFU and FAI advise the use of a Chartered Physiotherapist pitch side because research has shown pre match management such as strapping prevents injury and the safety of players in the case of concussion and other serious injuries is much improved.
In addition, Chartered Physiotherapists promote early and accurate diagnosis of the type and extent of injury and how to best manage the situation in the days and weeks ahead to ensure the quickest possible and permanent return.
