Sport Injury & Performance

We use the Global Postural Re-education method (GPR or RPG) to treat sport injuries.

If you don't have pain or injury, the Global Active Stretching method (SGA) can help you to improve your sport performance and prevent future injuries. 

SGA method is used by many Sport Teams in the world, such as the National Volleyball Team in Brazil or the Real Madrid Soccer Team in Spain.

What is Global Active Stretching method (SGA)?

Global Active Stretching originates from the RPG method and follows the same principles. This method consists of a series of stretching exercises based on specific, controlled and progressive postures with the goal of promoting improved soft tissue flexibility and consequently a better range of movement.

Using the SGA method, you can increase your flexibility on the whole muscle chains related to your specific needs. All the joints involved within the treated muscle chains can move more easily, faster and with less effort.

With a detailed assessment, we will help you identify which muscle chains you need to work on and which to prioritise according to your posture, your way of moving and the specific performance that you would like to achieve. Katia who is RPG/SGA trained physiotherapist, will also teach you how to continue the tailored SGA program independently.
