Your Sports Physio Questions Answered

What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a specific branch of physiotherapy that targets injuries and illnesses associated with sports. These types of injuries differ from everyday injuries because athletes, whether they are professional or amateur, continually focus on and train specific body parts that are essential for their sport, increasing the risk of injury over time. At NDPE, we provide comprehensive treatment for patients with acute sports injuries, recurring issues caused by sports activities, and patients recovering from surgery following sports-related injuries.

What are the benefits of sports physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy plays a crucial role in facilitating your healing journey and aims to optimise your flexibility, endurance, and strength.

The foremost objective of a sports physiotherapist is to address and alleviate your pain levels through various techniques, including massage and stretching. As your pain subsides, additional therapies may be incorporated to restore lost muscle strength and enhance overall mobility. At NDPE, our sports physiotherapists provide personalised treatment, specifically targeting the affected area to reduce pain and facilitate your return to your favourite activities. You’ll receive valuable education and resources to minimise the risk of re-injury, allowing you to enjoy your sport ongoing.

Sports physiotherapy encompasses the treatment of a diverse range of injuries that hinder your optimal performance. From soft tissue damage and nerve injuries to dislocations and fractures, our years of training enable us to effectively address the obstacles imposed by your sport.

How many sessions does it take until recovery?

The type and severity of your injury will heavily influence your recovery time. For instance, healing a fracture generally takes longer compared to a sprain or strain. Soft tissue injuries are categorised into 3 grades:

Grade 1: A mild strain that allows for functional movement, albeit with pain. Recovery from Grade 1 injuries usually takes approximately 2 weeks.

Grade 2: A moderate strain that can result in a mild to moderate impairment in function. Typically, these injuries require a recovery period of approximately 4-6 weeks.

Grade 3: A severe strain, tear, or potential rupture that may necessitate surgical intervention. Recovery from these types of injuries typically spans several months, potentially longer based on individual circumstances.

The exact number of sessions required will be determined through discussion between you and your sports physiotherapist.

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

Physiotherapists and sports therapists both undergo university studies to acquire their qualifications. In the case of sports therapists, there are two pathways to obtain the title—academic study (two years of full-time Master’s program) or experiential study (five years of full-time clinical or practical experience).

What are the common treatment approaches for sports injuries?

The treatment will vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will evaluate your injury and collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan, which may involve techniques such as:

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