WHAT IS SPORTS THERAPY?
Sports Therapy is an area of healthcare which specifically deals with the prevention, the treatment and the rehabilitation of injuries to professional and amateur athletes, people who keep fit for fun and accident victims, regardless of age, sport or ability. This is achieved via treatment plans which include various manual therapy techniques, electrotherapy, and progressive exercise rehabilitation.
Although some physiotherapists focus on sports-related cases, sports therapy and rehabilitation is a separate profession and is concerned with musculo-skeletal conditions arising from sporting activity and/or occupational duties.
