Sports Physiotherapy TelopeaSports Physio Telopea

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.

How Can Sports Physiotherapy Help You?

Sports physiotherapists possess detailed understanding of an athlete’s body mechanics. Their extensive qualifications and experience allow them to customise treatment to accommodate your specific sport, injury, and future requirements. Rely on our sports therapists to help you maintain peak condition for your sport by implementing effective management strategies.

Alongside treating sports-related injuries, a sports physiotherapist plays a vital role in assisting their patients with developing the necessary strength and flexibility, resulting in enhanced performance.

Your Sports Therapy Questions Answered

What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a specialised field within physiotherapy that focuses on treating injuries and illnesses related to sports. These types of injuries are distinct from everyday injuries because athletes, both professional and amateur, often concentrate on and train specific body parts that are crucial for their respective sports, which can increase the likelihood of injury over time. At NDPE, we offer comprehensive treatment for patients with acute sports injuries, recurring issues stemming from sporting activities, and patients in recovery following surgery for sports-related injuries.

How can Sports Physiotherapy benefit you?

Sports physiotherapy is instrumental in your path to recovery and focuses on improving 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 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 have the capability to assess, diagnose, and treat a diverse range of sports-related injuries including:

On average, how many sessions are needed for a full recovery?

Your recovery time will largely depend on the type and severity of your injury. For example, fractures typically require more time to heal compared to sprains or strains. Soft tissue injuries are classified 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 can cause a slight to moderate reduction in function. On average, these injuries necessitate around 4-6 weeks for recovery.

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 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).

How are sports injuries typically treated?

The treatment will vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. Your sports physiotherapist will evaluate your injury and collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan, which may involve techniques such as:

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

What are the top 10 sports injuries?

The 10 most frequently occurring sports injuries include:

  • Strains
  • Groin pull
  • Sprains
  • Knee injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Back injuries
  • Concussions

Which sport has the highest rate of injuries?

The answer to this question varies across countries and genders. In Australia, for men, cycling has the highest injury rate among all sports, with AFL, rugby, and soccer following closely. Conversely, equestrian activities display the highest injury rate for Australian women, as well as netball, cycling, and soccer.
