SPORTS THERAPY &
WHAT IS THIS?
Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.
Most think it's only for people with sporting related injuries. You couldn't be further away from the truth!
The majority of our patients who attend us have the common related issues such as low back pain, shoulder discomfort, hip problems, posture deviations and many more.
It involves a multifaceted approach to helping a patient. We get hands on (which some Physiotherapists don't believe in) and we prescribe corrective exercises as well to aid the rehabilitation process.
Depending on your condition we have a vast array of treatments that can assist your "niggles". These involve myofascial release, soft tissue mobilisations, trigger point therapy, electrotherapy, and muscle energy techniques to name a few.
Once again, we come from a research background where we strictly follow an evidence based approach rather than simply guessing and hoping for the best.
