Sports Therapy FAQs

What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a specialised field within physiotherapy that focuses on treating injuries and illnesses related to sports. These types of injuries are distinct from everyday injuries because athletes, both professional and amateur, often concentrate on and train specific body parts that are crucial for their respective sports, which can increase the likelihood of injury over time. At NDPE, we offer comprehensive treatment for patients with acute sports injuries, recurring issues stemming from sporting activities, and patients in recovery following surgery for sports-related injuries.

What positive outcomes can be expected from sports physiotherapy?

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

At NDPE, our sports physiotherapists prioritise reducing your pain levels as the primary goal. They employ techniques such as massage and stretching to achieve this. As your pain diminishes, additional therapies will be introduced to rebuild any weakened muscle strength and enhance your overall mobility. Your treatment will be tailored to your specific needs, with a focus on the affected area to alleviate pain and restore your ability to participate in activities you love. You will also receive valuable education and resources to minimise the chances of re-injury, enabling you to remain actively engaged in your chosen sport.

What kinds of injuries do sports physiotherapists treat?

In sports physiotherapy, we have the ability to treat a wide array of injuries that can impede your peak performance. Whether it’s soft tissue damage, nerve injuries, dislocations, or fractures caused by your sport, our expertise and training empower us to provide effective treatment.

Which common injuries can sports physiotherapy help with?

Our experience and training enables us to assess, diagnose, and treat an extensive range of sporting-related injuries such as:

How many sessions does it take until recovery?

The recovery time varies based on the type and severity of your injury. For instance, fractures usually require a longer healing period compared to sprains or strains. Soft tissue injuries are divided into 3 grades:

Grade 1: A mild strain that allows you to perform daily activities, albeit with some pain. Grade 1 injuries generally require approximately 2 weeks for recovery.

Grade 2: A moderate strain that may lead to a minor to moderate loss of function. Recovery from these injuries generally takes about 4-6 weeks.

Grade 3: A severe strain, tear, or possible rupture that might require surgical intervention. Recovery from these types of injuries generally takes several months, potentially extending further depending on individual circumstances.

Together with your sports physiotherapist, you will establish the appropriate number of sessions needed to address your specific needs.

What are the distinctions between a physiotherapist and a sports therapist?

Both physiotherapists and sports therapists pursue university studies to obtain their qualifications. Regarding sports therapists, there are two available routes to earn the title—academic study (two years of full-time Master’s program) or experiential study (five years of full-time clinical or practical experience).

How are sports injuries typically treated?

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
