How is sports physiotherapy different?

Depending on your area of injury, it can be useful for you to be able to move without the restriction of tight clothes. Sporting and exercise attire can make assessment and treatment much easier.

Don’t worry, though, your therapist will have a range of towels and shorts to lend you if you get stuck. We want you to feel completely comfortable during your appointment.

In your first treatment session, you will be greeted at reception and asked to fill out an intake form.

Your physiotherapist will then take you into a consultation room and start with taking your relevant history, establishing what you hope to achieve out of your session and viewing any scans you might have available. They will then take you through a thorough physical assessment and help to establish a clear diagnosis, as well help to identify any contributing factors.

Following this, you will often receive hands-on treatment in the first session (provided it is likely to help you) as well as be provided with an idea of a management plan. Typically, you will be given some preliminary exercises in your first session, although sometimes this is better off left to later sessions, depending on your injury.

We always aim to meet and exceed your expectations!

It’s always difficult to say as it is very dependent on your injury. The initial sessions will typically be about reducing your symptoms, with follow-up sessions being more about helping you to reduce the risk of ongoing pain and dysfunction.

We always aim to keep the number of sessions to the minimum effective amount and pack each session with as much treatment, exercise and valuable education and advice as possible.

We often say that hands-on treatment is your short term answer and that exercise rehabilitation is your long-term solution. So once we have worked with you over a period of time to reduce your symptoms, we will do a few things to reduce the risk of recurrence:

  • Education about when you can and can’t do while exercising
  • Exercise-based rehabilitation with tailored rehab programs
  • Customised return to sport and exercise programs
  • Advice around lifestyle, ergonomics, sleep, and posture
