Sports Therapy is primarily focused on the rehabilitation of injuries and the prevention of future injuries. It helps in working with clients to bring them to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability. It uses the principles of sport and exercise science to prepare clients for training, competition and work.
Sports therapy will help you in 3 main areas
- Provide the immediate treatment of injuries
- Provide ongoing care and rehabilitation of injuries through soft tissue treatment and exercise guidance. Exercise therapy will be a combination of 1:2:1 work in the treatment room and also up in the gym.
- Improve sporting performance through exercise guidance and soft tissue treatment.
