Pre-Exercise Screening

Pre-Exercise Screening

The multidisciplinary team at South Coast Sports Medicine is trained in Musculoskeletal Screening, posture assessment, biomechanics and pre-exercise screening.

We provide expert assessment, efficient referral for tests, accurate diagnosis and an evidence-based multidisciplinary treatment plan. Our Sports Doctors, Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologists will work closely to examine the way your upper and lower limbs work, checking for abnormalities and possible causes of pain.



Why would I need a assessment?

  • Very few people are symmetrical, affecting the way they stand and move
  • Advise on exercise to improve strength and flexibility
  • Do you have pain associated with occupational or sporting activity that is repetitive and constant?
  • Do you have new or longstanding pain in the back, hip, legs, knee or feet?
  • Does a particular sporting or occupational activity contribute to joint/muscle overload?
  • Want to return to exercise but afraid of re-injuring yourself?

We recommend you seeing a Sports Doctor first to get a diagnosis, and they will work alongside the other members of the team (physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, personal trainers) to develop a individual treatment plan for you.

Couldn’t of done it without Ingrid! Hardest most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life and I recommend it to anyone to do. I’m certainly not a overly fit person but with the right training and direction you can set and achieve goals like I did! Thanks so much to the team at SCSM.

Awesome Maxine. Congratulations.

Dedication to achieve the end goal!! Nailed it mate! 😍 Now for the next adventure 😃

The shoulder is an amazing joint that is able to reach in ANY direction. To allow this we sacrifice stability and often the shoulder can be a common area to injure

Dave took us through the complexities of the shoulder and how to diagnose and treat more effectively. We also discussed surgery vs exercise management

For many non-surgical management should be the first step.
