What is Sports Physiotherapy?
Sports injuries do differ to everyday injuries and as such require different management strategies. Athletes normally require high level performance and demand placed upon their body, which stresses their muscles, joints and bones to the limit. Physiotherapists help athletes recover from sporting injuries, and provide education and resources to prevent problems from developing.
Physiotherapists assess the risk of injury associated with specific sports or physical activities. We can work with you, your coach and other members of your team to develop strategies for injury prevention and maximise your performance.
Unfortunately, participating in sports can increase your risk of injury. Following an injury, it is vital to begin Physiotherapy treatment as soon as possible to reduce pain, swelling and muscle atrophy. Our expert Physiotherapists will help you return to sport in the shortest time possible.
To restore and maximise your functional capacity you will need a structured return to sport management plan. Your management plan is designed to reduce tissue overload, injury aggravation and delayed return to sport. It is important to maintain as much function as possible during your recovery and reintroduce loads gradually. Our Physiotherapists will guide you through a safe and sustainable return to sport.
