When should I see a sports physio?
Whether you’ve had surgery and need rehab or have an acute or chronic injury, it’s essential to consult a physiotherapist as soon as possible. Remember that even the smallest injuries can significantly impact your performance if left untreated.
Do sports physios treat injuries caused in the gym?
Weight training is a form of physical activity since it requires you to use and overload your muscles. Therefore, if you have an injury caused by weight training, our sports physio can help you recover and avoid these same issues. We’ll assess your movement patterns and help you develop safer techniques to avoid future problems.
What will be discussed in our first consultation?
Once we’re working together, the first step is to undergo an initial assessment of your injury. Your consultation will generally include the following:
- Questions about your age, physical activity and current treatment methods
- An evaluation of the area causing you trouble
- A discussion on your current training regime
- Your symptoms and their impact on performance
- What you hope to get out of the treatment
Our therapists will then conduct a thorough examination of your injury, considering the history you provide us with along with your current training routine. We then explain our findings in simple terms so you can understand the nature of your injury and treat them with various types of physiotherapy.
How long does it take for sports physio exercises to work?
It depends on the severity of your damage, but it generally takes 6-8 weeks to finish treatment for soft tissue injuries. Chronic injuries, however, usually take over eight weeks. Our dedicated sports physio will track your progress week by week to ensure you get the best results.
How long does a sports physio session last?
Treatment sessions usually last 30-60 minutes. This also gives you the time to ask your questions and get answers to understand your injury and treatment plan better.
Can a sports physio improve performance?
Yes, our physiotherapists can recognise biomechanical issues that could be affecting your performance. Whether your training technique requires a few tweaks or an old injury is causing you trouble, we will guide you to the best outcome.
Should I go to a physio over a doctor?
If you’ve been injured, the proper treatment will speed up your recovery and enable you to get back to training asap. In many cases, a physiotherapist will treat you as soon as you present your symptoms, targeting the route of the problem. A doctor, meanwhile, may prescribe medication or recommend you to a specialist.
What is the difference between a Sports Physio and an Osteopath?
Sports physiotherapy works to improve the way your muscles, bones and joints work in unison for your chosen sport. It also treats acute and chronic injuries related to your sport. Osteopathy, meanwhile, helps to detect, treat and avoid health problems by looking at your entire body and how its structure affects movement and general health.
