Sports Therapy FAQs

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 advantages does sports physiotherapy offer?

Sports physiotherapy assists in your journey towards healing and aims to enhance 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.

What types of injuries are addressed in sports physiotherapy?

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 benefit from sports physiotherapy?

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

What is the usual number of sessions required for complete recovery?

The duration of your recovery will be influenced by the type and severity of your injury. Fractures, for instance, generally take longer to heal compared to sprains or strains. Soft tissue injuries are categorised into 3 grades:

Grade 1: A minor strain that still allows you to function, although experiencing some pain. It typically takes around 2 weeks for Grade 1 injuries to heal.

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.

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

What sets apart a physiotherapist from 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).

What are the common treatment approaches for sports injuries?

The specific treatment will be determined based on the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will carefully evaluate your injury and collaborate with you to devise a treatment plan, which may include techniques such as:

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

  • Dislocations
