Sports physiotherapy is a specialised segment of physiotherapy that deals with the physical issues and injuries sustained by sports people and athletes.
Due to the high levels of stress that sports people and athletes place on their bodies during their physical activities, muscles and joints are pushed to their limits and can result in injuries more severe than those which typically happen in day-to-day life.
We specialise in these injuries and usually have sport-specific knowledge which allows us to the address the acute, chronic and overuse injuries associated with the athlete’s sport. We can develop individualised plans for the treatment and prevention of sports injuries.
We may be able to help you by:
- Examining and diagnosing injuries
- Planning treatment and prevention programs
- Using methods such as manipulation, massage, heat treatment, electrotherapy and hydrotherapy
We work with children, adolescents, men and women of all ages who are engaged in sports of any level, from amateur competitions to professional levels.
