Sports Physiotherapy for performance optimisation, injury prevention and rehabilitation

A large number of people engage in sport at some level. It may be for recreational and social purposes, or a serious or professional commitment.

It is highly likely that at some point athletes will probably need to see a physiotherapist due to a sports injury, or to prevent injuries arising during training and competition. It is also common for someone to receive sports physiotherapy if they are recovering from surgery and require treatment to get back to their former self and performance.

People will often see a sports physiotherapist if they are experiencing:

  • Drop in physical performance whether it be strength, flexibility and/or cardio
  • Subtle, acute or chronic pain
  • Loss or some loss of physical function or ability
  • New inflammation of ligaments or joints
  • New concern about causing a sports injury and want professional advice
