Sports therapy is an aspect of healthcare that deals with the rehabilitation and prevention of sporting and non-sporting injuries. Sports therapists use a combination of massage, stretching and exercise to treat your injuries and improve your performance. Sports therapy involves the management, manipulations and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body; these include muscles, tendons and ligaments. Our aim is to not only return you to optimum function and fitness, but to prepare you body so it is ready for the next level up of fitness and performance.
By assessing and recognising vital signs of injury, a sports therapist will then use a variety of physiological and biomechanical techniques to decide the best way to begin the rehabilitation of the patient. Whether this is through immediate treatment or through a referral programme the best course of action will be undertaken.
Treatment can include;
- Mobilisation techniques
- Soft tissue massage
- Muscle energy techniques
- Strengthen exercises
- Homecare advice
All these treatments can easily be performed for everyday aches, pains and injuries. Sports therapy is used on all types of complaints: Falls, Whiplash, Sprains, Strains & Muscle tension of any kind.
Muscle related aches, pains and strains are the most common injury a sports therapist will treat. From the sports arena to the office, sports therapy can be applied to to make the patient more comfortable and eventually pain free to allow work and play enjoyable once again.
