What is Sports Physiotherapy
Sports Physiotherapy is a form of Physiotherapy with a therapist who has specialist knowledge within your sporting environment and with experience in managing injuries with performance goals. As a result, they have a greater knowledge of the movements, tasks and pressures required for a given sport. This aids in understanding the cause of your injury, resulting in a more accurate diagnosis and therefore a faster recovery. Your rehabilitation will be specifically tailored to your given sport rather than generic exercises. Your therapist will also guided you with appropriate return to train and play protocols enabling you to have a structured return to sport. This helps to reduce your risk of re-injury or injuring another part of your body due to compensation patterns.
