Sports Physiotherapy

Sports physiotherapy is a specialty within physiotherapy which is dedicated to the assessment and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise at all levels and ages.

Sports injuries do differ from day-to-day injuries. Athletes typically require high-level performance and demand placed upon their body, which stresses their muscles, joints and bones to the limit. Sports physiotherapists help athletes recover from sporting injuries and provide education and resources to prevent problems. They have a high level of understanding of your training demands and work with your coaches to ensure rehab is integrated and inclusive of your performance and coaching requirements.

Sports Physiotherapists require additional expertise to provide the best of care for their athletes. To increase their knowledge and skill, they undertake further professional training in the field of sports physiotherapy. At Physio Connex Performance Clinic we are fortunate to have experts in sports physiotherapy in our team who can assist our athlete patients.
