Sports Physiotherapy

Sports injuries should be assessed immediately by a Chartered Physiotherapist so the diagnosis and the correct treatment plan can be started quickly. Immediate treatment with ice (always protect skin with a damp cloth before applying ice) every 2 hours for the first 72 hours is advised. Physiotherapy at early stages may consist of providing optimal loading strategies of the injured area and Sports taping to protect the area from further damage.  

As the injury starts to heal the Physiotherapy treatment plan will change and will be closely matched to the stages of healing of the injury. This plan may include: Stretching, Strengthening, Deep friction massage, soft tissue mobilisation and massage, myofascial release, and Kinesio taping may all be used. Shockwave Therapy may also be advised to be included in your treatment by your Physiotherapist.

Strength and conditioning exercises and rehabilitation strategies will be shown to you and are critical to regain power, endurance and capacity in the soft tissue to enable it to be loaded successfully reducing the risk of reinjury.

Our Physiotherapists will tailor exercises to your sport and this is known as Sports specific rehabilitation. It is normally provided towards the end of treatment programme with Revive Physiotherapy to ensure that the injury will hold up to training and return to play.

The Physiotherapist will be able to give you an indication of when you can return to training and your sport.

If the injury has been a result of biomechanical error, training error or muscle imbalance this should be addressed by your Physiotherapist and treated to prevent injury recurring.

The cost of treating Sports Injuries with the Sports Physio is charged from £50 for a 45minute session.
