What is Sports Physiotherapy
Sports Physiotherapy is the practice of assessing, diagnosing and treating the human body to restore function, reduce stress and relieve pain commonly associated with sporting activities.
Why Sports Physiotherapy is so important
Sport of any kind whether it’s professional or amateur can potentially lead to tremendous strain on the body and if you regularly push yourself to the edge of what is physically possible, you are putting stress on muscles, joints, ligaments and bones. The stress is greater on the body than on people who don’t participate in sport, with athletes placing harsher demands on themselves in training and competition.
