Our sports physiotherapists utilise their years of experience and skill to specifically address sports-related injuries and illnesses. While anyone engaged in physical activity can derive advantages from sports physiotherapy, it is particularly advantageous for athletes who engage in repeated strenuous activities, which place significant strain and demand on their bodies. Sports physiotherapy provides tailored treatment to each individual, ensuring that their fitness needs and recovery are closely intertwined.

In addition to treating sport-related injuries, a sports physiotherapist can assist their patients in developing appropriate strength and flexibility, which will undoubtedly enhance performance.

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 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.

First and foremost, a sports physiotherapist will focus on alleviating your pain levels using techniques like massage and stretching. As your pain decreases, additional therapies may be incorporated to regain any lost muscle strength and enhance overall mobility. With one of our sports physiotherapists at NDPE, your treatment will be personalised, specifically targeting the affected area to reduce pain and enable you to resume activities you enjoy. Additionally, you’ll receive education and resources to minimise the risk of re-injury, allowing you to stay active for an extended period.

What kinds of injuries do sports physiotherapists treat?

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?

With our knowledge and skills, we are equipped to assess, diagnose, and treat various 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 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 potential rupture that may require surgical intervention. The recovery period for these types of injuries typically extends over several months, and the duration can vary based on individual circumstances.

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

What sets apart a physiotherapist from 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 is the treatment for sports injuries?

The treatment strategy will be customised based on the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will assess your injury and work together with you to design a treatment plan, which may incorporate techniques such as:

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