Why sports therapy?
As a Sports Therapist we can advise how to train and compete safely, as well as treat injuries and assist with rehabilitation. Our aim is to prevent injuries and to help those who are injured to return to full fitness.
Sports therapy and rehabilitation is concerned with musculoskeletal conditions arising from sporting activity and everyday life. It focuses on understanding and preventing injuries and dealing with the effects of physical and emotional trauma due to the injury.
Sports therapists may work in sports injury clinics or may work directly with a sports club or sportsperson, either professional or amateur, or both. Many therapists combine working in this discipline with other sports-related roles.
