What is Sports Physiotherapy?
Article by Zoe Russell
Sports Physiotherapy or Sports Physio 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 sportsmen and sportswomen of all ages engaged in sports at any level of competition.
Sports Physiotherapists require additional expertise to provide the best of care for their athletes. To increase their knowledge and skill they undertake additional professional training in the field of sports physiotherapy. PhysioWorks is fortunate to have Sports Physiotherapists in their clinic team to assist our athletic clients - both professional and amateur.
