What is Sports Therapy?

Sports therapy is a aspect of healthcare that focuses on the prevention or injury, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. This approach uses principles such as biomechanical assessment for injury prevention and exercise prescription so that an individual can perform and continue to perform to the best of their ability.

A sports therapist uses an array of skills to assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries.Their knowledge enables them to make an accurate diagnosis of the problematic area and devise a treatment plan that is tailored to the needs of the patient. Although sport is used in the title, these practitioners are not solely qualified to treat sport related injures. Our practitioners utilise the principles of sport and exercise science in order to treat a range of disorders and conditions.

Common Conditions

A sports therapist commonly treat musculoskeletal injuries. The musculoskeletal system is made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and joints. Our team of therapist can treat everything from a muscle tear to lower back pain. The most common injuries that we see are ankles, knees, shoulders and lower backs in both sporting and non sporting patients

How can sports therapy help me?

At your initial consultation your therapist will take a detailed initial assessment and look at your presenting problem. Following this appropriate treatment will be provided with the aim of reducing pain, improving mobility, reducing muscle tension or addressing muscle imbalances. A tailored exercise program may be prescribed to facilitate your optimal recovery.
