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.

Our Netball guru and Physio extraordinaire, Stacey, has come up with three exercises for our netball rookie, Jake, to practice to prevent injuries to knees and ankles:

Dynamic pelvis stability using a fit ball against a wall to do a single leg squat.

Match simulation exercises like a safe landing after a quick, unprompted 90 degree turn.

And the most brutal, a jump and a push from a teammate to simulate the mid air bumps that “non-contact” sports like netball are renowned for! Here, we’re aiming for a safe landing without knees falling in.

A great online resource for netballers is knee.netball.com.au but nothing beats a program tailored just for you by our Accredited Exercise Physiologists
