Communication with Coaches, Trainers and Parents
At Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinics, we understand the importance of communication and working as a team. We value the collaborative partnership with coaches and trainers, recognizing that together we can optimize the performance and recovery of every player. Our team of therapists will communicate with coaches and trainers, to discuss athletes conditions, progress, treatment plans, and any modifications to the athletes training program.

Return to Play Clearance
Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic plays an important role in facilitating clearance for return to sport, when it comes to concussions, ACL injuries and other musculoskeletal injuries.
In the case of concussions, we understand the importance of proper management and clearance protocols to ensure that the athlete is ready for return to sport. We use evidence-based concussion assessment tools and follow established guidelines. Our priority is to guide athletes through a step-by-step return-to-sport process, prioritizing their safety and minimizing the risk of re-injury.
In addition, Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic takes a comprehensive approach to musculoskeletal injuries, including ACL injuries, ankle sprains, and fractures. Once an athlete reaches the stage where they are ready to return to sport, the therapists at Sheddon will implement evidence-based return-to-sport testing. These specialized tests are designed to assess an athlete’s readiness and determine if they have met the necessary criteria to safely resume their sport. Our testing protocols consider various factors, including strength, functional movements, and sport-specific skills. By following these evidence-based guidelines, we ensure that athletes have fully recovered and have the required physical capabilities to prevent re-injury and perform at their best.
