Sports physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of all sports injuries.
A good understanding of human anatomy and physiology is essential to being a good sports physiotherapist. On initial assessment we will be able to tell you if a muscle, joint or nerve is involved in your injury, your diagnosis, prognosis and what will be needed to get you back to the sport you love. Treatment often involves hands-on physiotherapy which could include the following treatments for:
- Myofascial release
- Deep tissue massage
- Trigger point release
- Specific soft tissue mobilisation
- Dry needling
- Maitland mobilisation techniques
- Mulligan mobilisation techniques
- Mckenzie mobilisation method
- Strapping techniques
- Releasing neural pathways
- Neural mobilisation
This will be followed by a sports specific rehabilitation programme to address the areas needing attention from your initial assessment. Strength and conditioning for weak muscles, stretching for tight muscles and neural mobilisation for tight nerves.
We will also give you top tips on how to avoid your injury in future.
A sports physiotherapist will help to identify the nature of your injury and how to treat it. That is often half the battle won. The uncertainty around a sports injury often provokes anxiety which in turn provokes more pain and fear of movement. It is essential to identify the sports injury and to move within the limits of pain to preserve good bodily functioning. Sports Injuries are part of sport and exercise. All machines eventually require a mechanic after long-term use. Likewise, if you are going to be exercising and exerting your body, it is good to have a bio-mechanic. Look after your body and let us help you with your sports injury today.
