Musculoskeletal Screening and Pre Rehabilitation Services
Do you play sports or exercise regularly? Your body will reap the benefits of being consistently active. But, the more you're active the more chance you have of injury from something going wrong. Sometimes accidents happen, and these injuries simply can't be helped. But other types of injury are avoidable. With musculoskeletal screening you give yourself the best chance of playing on injury-free.

What is Musculoskeletal Screening?
It's not the easiest thing to say, but 'Musculoskeletal' refers to the muscles and skeleton and how they work together. With Musculoskeletal Screening, we look at how your muscles work to give you advice on better performance.
We use various tests and procedures to analyse your body's performance. Through these assessments we can determine your:
- Joints' range of motion (ROM) - there are standards for normal ROM for all joints. We measure yours against this so we can work out how you can achieve normal ROM
- Flexibility - a lack of flexibility can impact your quality of life, or make your sport or exercise more difficult and potentially dangerous. We'll work out if you need to limber up and advise you on the best way.
- Functional strength - this is strength that can be used in everyday life as well as sporting activities.
