Sports Injuries (Sports Therapy)

Sports Therapy is in effect physiotherapy for sport. Specifically, it is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries including its rehabilitation.

Our role is to enable athletes/patients to return to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability. Furthermore to help them prevent a reoccurrence of that injury in the future. This means that we have to know your sport, how injuries occurred and exactly how to treat it.

This involves:

  1. Skilled hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing to determine the best overall plan of care, on an individual basis.
  2. Utilizing a wide range of treatments and techniques, including structured exercise, massage, pain treatment and thorough consultation of their physical and medical history.
  3. Using the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare patients for training, competition and where applicable, work.
  4. Using various psychological approaches such as goal setting, motivation, imagery, empowerment, grief and loss to help you through your treatment and recovery.
