Sports and traumatic injuries

Sports and traumatic injuries

Have you sustained an injury while participating in sport, physical recreation, or in everyday activities? Our team of experts, i.e. osteopaths, physiotherapists and kinesitherapists, who closely cooperate with Croatian eminent physicians, have many years of experience, with a high-performance rate, in both the conservative and post-surgery treatment of sports and traumatic injuries.

Involvement in sport implicitly represents a risk of sports injury. However, injuries are not sustained only during sporting activities; they may occur in everyday life as well, in the form of either accidents (trauma) or overstretch syndromes (soft tissue damage). Although most of sports and traumatic injuries are successfully treated by a non-operative, conservative approach, there are certain injuries to joints, bones and soft tissue that require surgery and then post-surgical rehabilitation.

Our system of functional rehabilitation is specific because it is focused on the full restoration of a patient’s physical fitness and skills before his/her return to sports training programmes or everyday living activities; during the restoration process, we fastidiously regard a biological process of tissue healing. The process of rehabilitation, tailored and individually monitored for every single patient, includes the following:

  • Attenuation of pain and swelling
  • Restoration of joints’ mobility and soft tissue flexibility
  • Restoration of muscle strength, power and endurance
  • Restoration of coordination and balance
  • Restoration of specific physical fitness and skills.

A patient’s progression through the rehabilitation stages is evaluated by scientifically based and clinically verified functional criteria, which reduces the possibility of injury recurrence to a minimum. Further, the same criteria are respected in the decision- making on the approval of the patient’s return to sporting or physical recreation activities.

In order to adapt to the goals and demands of our every client and to consider the specificity of certain injuries at the same time, we have created three individual programs of rehabilitation of sports and traumatic injuries:

MM Sport Reha – Accelerated program of sports rehabilitation

The program is intended for professional sportsmen whose goal is to quickly recover from an injury and to safely return to their trainings and competitions. The program usually includes a daily two-hour treatment with a combination of adequate osteopathic, physiotherapy and kinesitherapy procedures but also a substitute training in order to maintain physical fitness and skills of the sportsman. The progress through all the phases of rehabilitation until returning to sports is being monitored by applying objective functional and radiological criteria.

MM Reha – Standard program of functional rehabilitation

The program is intended for recreational sportsmen and general population whose goal is to efficiently and safely return to everyday life functions or recreational workout after a sports or traumatic injury. The program includes coming to the therapy to our center 2-4 times per week until the end of the rehabilitation process.

MM Video Reha – “Remote” Program of functional rehabilitation

In certain cases functional rehabilitation can also be efficiently executed “remotely”. This program is characterized by a periodical (2-3 times per month) arrival to our center for a manual treatment and introduction to the exercises. Between the arrivals the patient independently administers kinesitherapy based on a designed program. The program, which contains videos of exercises and dosing of loads for every day, is being followed through a special mobile application. This rehabilitation program is specifically adequate for overstrain syndromes, such as tendonitis

For the last two years, I have been successfully working with Professor Marković on regeneration, fitness and recovery from injuries and pain.

Unfortunately, injuries are an integral part of professional sports. That is why it is important to have an expert team on your side, such as Professor Marković's.  The comfortable and beautiful atmosphere of Motus Melior, with its professional and expert staff, is a winning combination for a quick recovery.
