What is it?

Sports injury physiotherapy involves assessment and rehabilitation of an injury sustained during any type of sport. It aims to help athletes and active individuals recover from injuries sustained during physical activity, and to develop techniques to prevent future injuries.

What does it involve?

Sports injury physiotherapy involves a range of techniques to help athletes recover from injuries and improve their performance. This may include exercise programs, manual therapy, and rehabilitation techniques. Physiotherapists work closely with athletes to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs.

The treatment process may involve several stages, including an initial assessment to determine the nature and extent of the injury, the development of a treatment plan, and ongoing monitoring and adjustments as needed. Physiotherapists may also work with other healthcare professionals, such as sports medicine physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, and athletic trainers, to provide comprehensive care.

What happens after assessment:

    After an assessment, our physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan based on the athlete’s specific needs and goals. This may involve a range of techniques, such as stretching and strengthening exercises, manual therapy, and rehabilitation exercises.

    What to wear?

    Athletes should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for easy movement during their physiotherapy sessions. It is also recommended to wear athletic shoes or sneakers with good support and traction. Additionally, athletes may need to bring any braces, wraps, or other supportive equipment that they use during physical activity.
