Sports injury physiotherapy is a specialised form of physiotherapy which is designed to heal injuries or conditions occurred during sports activities.
Being active is good and healthy, but it may also increase the chances of getting injured. Injuries can always be avoided and prevented. Our sports physiotherapists are experienced and confident in treating a wide variety of sports injuries, from the legs up to the spine problems. These include sprains, muscle strains, dislocations, and recovery from surgery. The initial management focuses on resolving pain, reducing swelling, facilitating healing, minimise scar tissue, regain mobility, strength, and stability. We customise treatment that will get you back in the sport as quickly as possible.
Our 5-steps approach to sports injury management includes the following stages:
- Identify and understand the biomechanics relating to the injury
- Identify movement demands for specific sport
- Holistic treatment for body alignment and imbalances
- Improve movement strategy to optimise sport performance
- Educate on injury prevention and recurrence
