Sports physiotherapy needs to be very specific and detailed and in line with the athletes’ goals to return to his/her sport in order to perform at their optimal level and prevent recurrence. Being from a sporty background I love to promote injury prevention principles, educate and provide detailed rehabilitation to get athletes back to their best as soon as possible.
Treatment approaches include:
Joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage and stretching.
Education in injury specific home exercise to encourage self-management
Instruction in gym programmes and stability training.
Taping, bracing and prescription of foot orthotics to protect injured tissues
Testing of joint function prior to returning to sport
Gait analysis and biomechanical evaluation of sporting techniques.
