What is Sports Therapy?
Sports Therapy is a part of healthcare that is specific to preventing injury and the rehabilitation of a patient back to health.
How is it different to Physiotherapy?
In private practice, there is very little difference between the two professions.
We will assess the area of symptoms, the joints surrounding the area, the nerves, the ligaments, cartilage and all muscles; this is to ensure a comprehensive diagnosis can be given. Treatment can involve a range of things from mobilisations, sports massage, strengthening exercises, nerve techniques and more. This of course will be specific to you.
"When helping me recover from a tendon injury, Rachel went above and beyond her professional duties. Not only did she take great care in both treating the symptoms and figuring out the underlying cause (in my case, improper exercise technique), she has also been making sure that my form is now correct and safe by evaluating lifting videos that I have sent her."
