Sports Physiotherapy North SydneySports Physio North Sydney

With a wealth of experience and skill, our sports physiotherapists at NDPE have a strong focus on treating sports-related injuries and illnesses. While anyone who leads an active lifestyle can benefit from sports physiotherapy, it is particularly advantageous for athletes who engage in demanding and repetitive physical activities. These activities exert strain and put increased demand on their bodies. By offering personalised treatment, we ensure that the fitness requirements of each individual are met, and their recovery progresses effectively.

How Can Sports Physiotherapy Benefit You?

Sports physiotherapists have detailed knowledge of the way an athlete’s body mechanically operates. Their extensive qualifications and experience enable them to customise treatment to your sport, injury, and future needs. Your sports therapist can help you maintain peak condition for your sport by implementing management strategies.

Apart from treating injuries related to sports, a sports physiotherapist can aid their patients in building the right strength and flexibility, leading to notable performance improvements.

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 positive outcomes can be expected from sports physiotherapy?

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

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.

What common injuries can be addressed and managed through sports physiotherapy?

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

How many sessions are typically required for a complete 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 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 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 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.

How does a physiotherapist differ 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 is the treatment 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
