Sports Therapy

 

Sports Therapy offers treatment for acute or chronic sport related and non-sporting injuries such as ligament or muscle tears, as well as common conditions including back, shoulder, neck and joint pain. Sports therapy techniques can also treat muscle spasms and trigger point disorders along with other specific conditions including shoulder impingement, tennis or golfer’s elbow, knee injuries, ankle problems and arthritis.

 

Sports Therapists are experts in musculoskeletal disorders and treat pain and injury through hands-on treatment and rehabilitation. Depending on the nature of your injury the sports therapy techniques used may include manual massage, therapeutic ultrasound and rehabilitation exercises.

 

The emphasis is on restoring, maintaining and maximising movement to relieve pain and increase quality of life. Sports therapy is designed to ensure the rehabilitation of patients back to optimum levels of sport specific, functional, or occupational fitness in order to prepare for training, competition and work; regardless of age and ability.

 

As Sports Therapists focus solely on musculoskeletal rehabilitation and have a sport focused background, it makes them attractive to patients who are aiming to return to exercise.
