Physiotherapy

Why physiotherapy is important?

The management of sports injuries often requires a team approach to help you reach your goals. Once a diagnosis of your injury is made it is likely that you will require a period of rehabilitation which can be guided and supervised by a physiotherapist. It is also often advised to consult with a physiotherapist after injection therapy treatments as a combined approach of injection plus physio may lead to better outcomes.

What may physiotherapy consist of?

• Manual therapy
• Mobilisation & manipulation of joints
• Biomechanical assessments
• Taping
• Dry needling & acupuncture
• Exercise prescription

Where should you go for physiotherapy?

If you have been referred to the sports medicine clinic from your physiotherapist I would advise that you continue your care with them and a report will be provided to share with your physiotherapist.
