Sports Physio is the specialised branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people.
Sports injuries do differ to everyday injuries. Athletes normally 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.
Each of our sports physiotherapist have sport-specific knowledge that addresses acute, chronic and overuse injuries.
Sports Physiotherapists require additional training to provide the best of care for their athletes. To increase their knowledge and skill they undertake additional professional training in the field of sports physiotherapy.
It is important to not only understand sports injuries, but equally important to understand the sport you play and the demands it requires.
Body Smart physios have experience and knowledge of the latest evidence-based practice, skilled assessment and diagnosis of sports injuries, and use effective ‘hands-on’ management techniques and exercise protocols to assist recovery and prevent injury.
We have worked with many sportspersons and sporting teams from the elite to local club level. Regardless of your sport or your level of competition, we have the expertise, knowledge and commitment to help you.
