Sports Physiotherapy is the specialised branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people.
Sports injuries do differ to everyday injuries. Athletes normally require high level performance and demand placed upon their body, which stresses their muscles, joints and bones to the limit. Sports physiotherapists help athletes recover from sporting injuries, and provide education and resources to prevent problems.
Our Physiotherapy have experience and knowledge of the latest evidence-based practice, skilled assessment and diagnosis of sports injuries, and use effective ‘hands-on’ management techniques and exercise protocols to assist recovery and prevent injury.
Like all Physiotherapy our primary aim in sports physiotherapy is to treat and provide you, our patients and athletes, with complete rehabilitation after an injury, post surgery or to prevent further injury as well as regaining or maintaining your strength, flexibility and endurance. The goals are to return you to your sport in the shortest possible time. Your treatment will involve protecting the injured area to promote healing, reducing inflammation in the early stages of your injury and guidance to improve flexibility, strength, endurance, proprioception and to correct muscle-imbalances to keep you safe as you return to your exercise or sport.
