What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a specialised branch that focuses on preventing, diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating injuries related to sports and exercise. It caters to athletes of all levels, from amateurs to elite professionals, aiming to help them improve their performance, recover from injuries, and prevent future injuries.

Sports physiotherapists provide exercises, manual therapy, and advice on activity modification to address sports-related injuries and conditions.

Key aspects of sports physiotherapy include

  1. Injury Assessment and Diagnosis: Sports physiotherapists are skilled in assessing and diagnosing the pathology and extent of an injury, understanding its impact on performance, and determining the best course of action for treatment.
  2. Personalised Treatment Plans: They develop tailored treatment plans that may include a combination of techniques such as manual therapy (e.g., massage, mobilisation, dry needling) and targeted exercise and rehabilitation programs to enhance strength, flexibility, coordination and performance.
  3. Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation focuses on safely returning the athlete to their sport. This involves specific exercises that mimic sports activities, gradually increasing in intensity and complexity until the athlete is ready to resume full participation.
  4. Injury Prevention: Sports physiotherapists provide guidance on proper warm-up techniques, strength training, conditioning, and equipment use to minimise the risk of injuries. They also educate athletes on recognising and minimising early signs of potential injuries.
  5. Performance Enhancement: Beyond injury management, sports physiotherapy also aims to enhance an athlete’s performance by identifying biomechanical issues, improving technique, and optimising strength and flexibility.
  6. Education and Advice: Educating athletes on performance enhancement strategies is also a crucial part of sports physiotherapy to ensure their overall well-being and peak performance.

At Unbreakable Physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy is integral to the recovery of our patients, working closely with you to ensure the best outcomes for a quick recovery.

We can assist with a wide range of sports in addressing common injuries like sprains, strains, tendinopathy, and fractures, and also deals with post-surgery rehabilitation.

Sports Physio Moorabbin FAQs

The primary distinction between sports and general physiotherapy is their focus and specialisation. General physiotherapy offers comprehensive care for various physical issues for the entire population, whereas sports physiotherapy provides specialised care for athletes and physically active individuals, focusing on their unique needs. The choice between the two depends on the individual’s health needs, lifestyle, and objectives.

For a Physiotherapist to be titled as a Sports Physiotherapist, they are required to have completed extensive additional training and experience and be given this title by the Australian Physiotherapy Association. Our very own Jono Sandler has received this title after his successful completing of the Masters of Sports Medicine from The University of Melbourne and his extensive work in professional sport.
