Sports injuries are different to normal day-to-day injuries. The demands of sport on the body are higher than everyday activities such as walking. This places more pressure on the joints. Also ligaments, muscles and tendons and can make them prone to injury.
The term ‘sports physiotherapist’ is not a protected title in the UK, unlike in Australia for example. This means that any physiotherapist in the UK can call themselves a ‘sports physiotherapist’. It is essential that if someone wants to see a sports physiotherapist that the physiotherapist has the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience.
SPORTS INJURY CLINIC
Sports physiotherapists have a multi-faceted role which includes:
- Assessment of injuries. This requires careful and comprehensive questioning about the current injury. Also, previous injuries will involve a thorough examination of the body.
- Identifying the root cause of the injury. Often the root cause is not where the pain is located. A thorough assessment will identify the factors that have contributed to the injury.
- Development of an individualised treatment plan. This will address all weaknesses and imbalances. We want an athlete to come back stronger from their injury to prevent re-occurrence.
- Improve the strength and mechanics of other parts of the body. This is essential especially if an athlete needs a period of time away from sport during recovery.
- Applying realistic timescales for their return to sport. This is a skill and only comes with experience. Injuries heal at different rates in different people.
- Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. This may be the immediate team e.g. coach, team manager, sports doctor, or parent. It may require a referral to the extended team e.g. sports psychologist or dietitian.
- Injury prevention. Identifying all the risk factors for an injury and implementing a plan to address them.
A physiotherapist helps to restore movement and function when you are affected by injury, pain, illness, also disability.
Neurological disease or injury can affect many aspects of a person’s body and life including:
