Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy provides the assessment, treatment and prevention of injuries, with the emphasis on rehabilitation back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age, level of fitness  and ability.

As a graduate Sports Therapist I have the knowledge, skills and ability to:

  • Utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance, preparation and injury prevention programmes

  • Provide the immediate care of injury

  • Assess, treat and, where appropriate, refer on for specialist advice

  • Provide appropriate sport and remedial massage in a sport and exercise context

  • Plan and implement appropriate rehabilitation programmes

 

Sports Therapy is a very hands-on treatment, which also may include the use of electrotherapy equipment such as Ultrasound, and TENS when appropriate.
