Sports Physiotherapy FAQs

What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that specifically addresses injuries and illnesses related to sports. These types of injuries differ from everyday injuries because athletes, whether professional or amateur, repeatedly emphasise and train specific body parts that are vital to their sport, increasing the risk of injury over time. At NDPE, we provide treatment for patients with acute sports injuries, recurring issues caused by sporting activities, and patients recovering from surgery due to sports injuries.

What are the benefits of sports physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy supports you in your healing process and strives to enhance your flexibility, endurance, and strength.

The primary focus of a sports physiotherapist is to effectively reduce your pain levels using techniques like massage and stretching. As your pain decreases, additional therapies may be introduced to restore any diminished muscle strength and improve your overall range of motion. At NDPE, our sports physiotherapists will tailor your treatment to your individual needs, targeting the affected area to alleviate pain and help you regain the ability to engage in activities you love. Additionally, you will receive education and resources to reduce the likelihood of re-injury, enabling you to stay actively involved for longer.

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 for functional movement, albeit with pain. Recovery from Grade 1 injuries usually takes approximately 2 weeks.

Grade 2: A moderate strain that may result in a mild to moderate decrease in functionality. Typically, these injuries require approximately 4-6 weeks of recovery time.

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.

Overall, you and your sports physiotherapist will collaborate to determine the number of sessions required.

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

Both physiotherapists and sports therapists undergo university studies to obtain their qualifications. To become a sports therapist, they can choose between two pathways to achieve their title—either through 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 approach will be tailored according to the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will assess your specific injury and collaborate with you to create a treatment plan, which may incorporate techniques such as:

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