How is Sports Physiotherapy different to everyday Physiotherapy?

Injuries obtained in sport often do differ from everyday issues. There are significant demands placed upon an athlete’s body, injuries can occur around high-use areas or with sport related contact.

The repetitive nature of many sports means that specific structures are stressed on a continual basis.

 

As such, certain injuries become common amongst athletes in the same sport. Examples of these include Throwers Elbow, Tennis Elbow, and ACL ruptures in sports with quick changes of direction.
