Playing sport is a great way to stay active and healthy. It can help build strength, improve cardiovascular health, and increase energy levels. Regular exercise can lead to weight loss, improved cognitive performance and mood enhancements, as well as preventing chronic diseases and improving sleep quality. Sport gives us the chance to make new friends and socialise in a fun and healthy environment.

The pain and discomfort that can accompany an injury can be quite severe. It can make it very difficult to move and do daily activities, let alone participate in sports. Sports injuries are particularly problematic because they can limit our ability to perform at our best and even prevent us from playing altogether.

Are you one of those people who enjoys playing sports at both a professional and amateur level but is being prevented from doing so by injury or pain? Have you had a niggly concern that just doesn’t go away? You should get the advice of a Sports Physiotherapist.

What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy refers to a special field of physiotherapy that focuses on the management, prevention, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries among athletes and active people.

It is important to understand that sports injuries can be very different from other injuries. Sportpeople often require active performance. This puts a high demand on their muscles, joints, and bones.

Why is Sports Physiotherapy important?

It is important to be able to return to your sport quickly and safely after undergoing treatment for a sporting injury. Sports physiotherapists have the ability to diagnose and manage musculoskeletal injuries. You will be given a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. This could include manual therapy, exercise prescription and biomechanical assessment.

How can a sports physiotherapist help?

Sports physiotherapists are passionate advocates of sport and physical activity, helping athletes of all levels to reach their potential by taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. They work closely with athletes, coaches, medical practitioners, and other allied health professionals as part of a multidisciplinary team that focuses on achieving the best outcomes for each individual athlete.

Sports physiotherapists may have specific knowledge that addresses injuries suffered in particular sports like football, basketball, cricket, hockey, and cricket. It is for this reason that it is necessary to meet with a sports physiotherapist that knows the complicated nature of your specific sport.

Sports physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of the latest evidence-based practice, are skilled at diagnosing and treating sports injuries, and are proficient in using ‘hands off’ treatment methods to aid injury recovery.
