Sports Physiotherapy is a form of physical therapy that specifically treats sports related illness and injury. As athletes perform vigorous levels of activity that place strain and demand on their bodies regularly, their treatment must be tailored to this high intensity lifestyle. Sports Physiotherapy offers treatment specific to sports men and women so that their recovery is suited to their fitness requirements.
Much like traditional physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy uses a range of techniques which include, but are not limited to joint mobilisation, manipulation, muscular and myofascial release, trigger point release, manual therapy, dry needling, and exercise therapy.
Treatment performed by sports physiotherapists differs from traditional physiotherapy in that sports people tend to develop sports related, specific injuries.
Sports physiotherapists have detailed knowledge of the way an athlete’s body mechanically operates. Their extensive qualifications and experience enables them to tailor treatment to your sport, injury and future needs. Moreover, your sports therapist can assist in helping you to maintain peak condition for your sport by implementing management strategies.
In addition to treating sport related injury, a sport physiotherapist can assist their patient in developing appropriate strength and flexibility which will certainly improve performance.
