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 advantages does sports physiotherapy offer?

Sports physiotherapy is instrumental in your path to recovery and focuses on improving 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.

Which injuries are commonly treated in sports physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy offers comprehensive solutions for various injuries that hinder your performance capabilities. From soft tissue damage, nerve injuries, dislocations, to fractures incurred during your sport, our years of training allow us to effectively address these challenges.

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:

How many sessions does it take until 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 permits functionality, although accompanied by pain. Grade 1 injuries typically take around 2 weeks to recover from.

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.

In general, the number of sessions needed will be determined through a collaborative effort between you and your sports physiotherapist.

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

Physiotherapists and sports therapists both complete university studies to obtain their qualifications. However, the path to becoming a sports therapist involves two options—academic study (two years of full-time Master’s program) or experiential study (five years of full-time clinical or practical experience).

What is the treatment 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
