Return to Play Testing


Return-to-play testing is a crucial part of rehab, ensuring that an athlete or individual is ready and properly prepared to return to full activity.

Return to play testing is a critical step in the rehabilitation process for athletes, who are returning to sport or full activity after an injury. It is a series of tests designed to assess an individual's physical function and readiness to return to sport. The tests are designed to evaluate an athlete's strength, power, balance, agility, and overall fitness, and help determine if the athlete is ready to safely return to sport.

Return to play testing is important as it helps to prevent re-injury and ensure that the athlete is ready to perform at their pre-injury level. At our facility, we utilize state-of-the-art technology including force plates and laser timers to determine the safety of an individual returning to play. These tools provide objective data on an athlete's physical function, which can help to identify any areas of weakness or imbalances that may need to be addressed before the athlete returns to sport.

Our return to play testing protocols are tailored to the specific needs of the athlete and their sport, and follow the guidelines set by the relevant sports governing bodies. The results of the tests are used to create a return to play plan that addresses the athlete's specific needs and helps them to safely return to sport.
