Our sports physio service is tailored towards athletes and those who have sustained an injury during physical activity. Sporting activities of all types, regardless of your level, put additional strain on your ligaments, joints and muscles. For that reason, sports injuries are treated differently than normal injuries. We go over and above to assess and treat your sporting injuries with tailored plans just for you.

What is sports physio?

Sports physio is all about assessing and treating sporting injuries. Regardless of the level of sport you play, you’re likely to experience injuries at one time or another. Whether you’re a professional sportsperson or a weekend jogger, these injuries can be painful and keep you out of action for longer if not treated.

We cater to people participating in sports at any level, and you certainly don’t need to be a professional athlete to get the best care available. If you’ve sustained an injury, our qualified physiotherapists assess you before devising a tailored treatment program. Just like any injury, a proper rehabilitation plan is essential to get you back to your peak level of performance.

Treatment may include muscle mobilisation and manipulation, massage, education, and most importantly targeted exercises to help you through your rehabilitation.

Like all of our rehabilitation services, all sports physio treatment is tailored to your individual needs and recovery plan.

When do you need sports physio?

If you’ve got an active lifestyle, it’s likely you may need sports physio at one point in your life. Whether you’re active in the gym, a keen runner, a weekend social sports fanatic or a professional athlete, nobody is immune to injury.

No matter what level of sport you’re involved in, you want the quickest and most thorough recovery to get you back into the game, but you also want to remain injury free. That’s why our qualified physios will tailor a plan specifically for you.
