If you play a lot of sport, be it one or many, chances are that an injury will keep you away from your much loved game. And that’s where Sports Physiotherapy can help you stay at your peak, free from injury (or recovering fast when an injury occurs).
As the name suggests, Sports Physiotherapy is the specialised branch of physiotherapy that focuses on treating and preventing injuries that occur during sports and physical activity. At The Health Collab, we work with Elite Athletes to beginners, and anyone in between.
The goal of sports physiotherapy is to help athletes recover from injuries, improve performance, and prevent future injuries from occurring.
One of the primary ways that sports physiotherapy helps treat sports injuries is through the use of therapeutic exercise. This may include exercises to improve your strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected area(s). We will also use manual therapy techniques, such as massage and joint mobilization, to help reduce pain and inflammation.
In addition to treating injuries, sports physiotherapy can also help prevent future injuries from occurring. This is done through the use of exercises and techniques that focus on improving overall strength, flexibility, and balance. By addressing any underlying issues that may be contributing to an increased risk of injury, our Sports Physiotherapists can help reduce the risk of future injuries.
Another way sports physiotherapy can help you reach your athletic potential is by working with you to improve your overall fitness and conditioning. By working closely with you, our sports physiotherapists can help identify any areas where you may be lacking in fitness or conditioning, and provide guidance on how to improve these areas.
All of our physiotherapists are qualified, titled Sports Physios, and you can learn more about why’s that’s better for you, here.
