Willaston Physio are proud to sponsor Cheshire Phoenix and have supported them in keeping injury free and fit in many ways over the last 10 years. In particular we pride ourselves in keeping them free from injury and keeping them on the court.
Each player is put through a pre-season medical and a sports specific screening programme in our purpose built rehab centre, where highly qualified physiotherapists Paul Rushton and Dan Gabrielson are able to design an individual fitness programme where necessary to optimise fitness levels and enhance performance.
Unfortunately some of the players do suffer injuries and their aim is to accurately assess and diagnose the reason for their pain and quickly relieve symptoms and restore function
Basketball players are susceptible to lower limb injuries, an area that Paul specialises in and with the aid of our 3D Foot Scanner, a full Gait Analysis can provide the players with custom made orthotics (if required) to correct the gait. Many of the players have experienced excellent results from wearing these insoles
They have also found a great benefit from the magic hands of our sports therapist ‘Simon Squires’ after a tough game…He is highly qualified in sports massage and the benefits of a deep tissue massage to relax the muscles and minimise lactic acid build up are endless.
