Your Sports Therapy Questions Answered


What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that specifically treats sporting-related injuries and illnesses. These differ from everyday injuries as athletes— both professional and amateur— repeatedly focus on and train specific body parts crucial to their sport, which can lead to an increased chance of injury over time. At NDPE we treat patients with acute sports injuries, recurring issues caused by sporting activities, and patients recovering from surgery following sports injuries.

What are the benefits of sports physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy assists in your journey towards healing and aims to improve your flexibility, endurance, and strength.

First and foremost, a sports physiotherapist will concentrate on reducing your pain levels through techniques such as massage and stretching. As your pain decreases, additional therapies may be included to rebuild any lost muscle strength and improve overall movement. With one of our sports physiotherapists at NDPE your treatment will be tailored to you individually, targeting the affected area with the aim to reduce pain and get you back to doing what you love. You’ll also receive education and resources to reduce your chance of re-injury, keeping you in the game for longer.

What types of injuries does sports physiotherapy cover?

Sports physiotherapy can treat a wide range of injuries that impede your ability to perform at your best. Whether your injury relates to soft tissue damage, nerve injuries, dislocations, or broken bones, we utilise our years of training to treat whatever your sport has thrown at you.

Which common injuries can sports physiotherapy help with?

We are able to assess, diagnose and treat a wide variety of sporting related injuries such as:

How many sessions does it take until recovery?

The type and severity of your injury will factor heavily into your recovery time. For example, a fracture will typically take longer to heal than a sprain or strain. Soft tissue injuries are divided into 3 grades:

Grade 1: A mild strain that allows you to function, but with pain. Grade 1 injuries typically take ~2 weeks to recover from.
Grade 2: A moderate strain that can involve a small to moderate loss of function. Generally these injuries require ~4-6 weeks of recovery time.
Grade 3: A severe strain, tear, or even a rupture that may require surgical intervention. Recovery from these types of injuries typically takes several months, possibly longer depending on your individual circumstances.

Overall, you and your sports physiotherapist will work together to determine how many sessions you will need.

What is the difference between a physiotherapist and a sports therapist?

Both physiotherapists and sports therapists undertake university studies to earn their qualifications. To become a sports therapist, they will take one of two routes to attain their title— either through academic (two years’ full time Masters study) or experiential (five years’ full time clinical or practical experience) study.

What is the treatment for sports injuries?

The treatment will differ based on the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will assess your injury and work with you to establish a treatment plan, which could involve techniques such as:

  • Massage
  • Stretching
  • Ultrasound
  • TENS
  • Hot or cold therapies

What are the top 10 sports injuries?

  • Strains
  • Groin pull
  • Sprains
  • Knee injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Back injuries
