What is Sports Physiotherapy?

sports physio brisbane

Sports Physiotherapy is the specialised branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people.

Sports injuries do differ to everyday injuries. Athletes normally require high level performance and demand placed upon their body, which stresses their muscles, joints and bones to the limit.  Sports physiotherapists help athletes recover from sporting injuries, and provide education and resources to prevent problems. 

Each sports physiotherapist usually has sport-specific knowledge that addresses acute, chronic and overuse injuries. Their services are generally available to sports men and women of all ages engaged in sports at any level of competition. 

Members of Sports Physiotherapy Australia (SPA) have experience and knowledge of the latest evidence-based practice, skilled assessment and diagnosis of sports injuries, and use effective 'hands-on' management techniques and exercise protocols to assist recovery and prevent injury. SPA members have access to the most recent advances in sports physiotherapy. You'll be pleased to know that most of PhysioWorks physiotherapists and massage therapists have a special interest in sports injury management.

Acute Sports Injury Clinic

PhysioWorks has established an Acute Sports Injury Clinic at some of practices to assist with the early assessment and management of acute sports injuries.
