Sports Physiotherapy or Sports Physio is the branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people/athletes.
Sports injuries can differ to everyday injuries.
Athletes normally require high levels of performance and this may place increased demands and stresses to their muscles, joints and bones during training and when competing. Sports physiotherapists help athletes recover from sporting injuries, and provide education and resources to prevent problems.
Our physiotherapists utilise their sport-specific knowledge that addresses acute, chronic and overuse injuries. Our services are generally available to sports men and women of all ages engaged in sports at any level of competition.
We 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.
You’ll be pleased to know that all our physiotherapy staff have a special interest in sports injury management.
