SPORTS INJURIES

Physiotherapy for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries cover a wide variety of injuries and can involve any part of the body, from the head to the toes. Sports injuries occur when the body is performing at a higher level than normal everyday life requires. Risk of injury is increased when we are moving faster, performing repetitive movements, exercising to fatigue or performing the extreme movements that sport demands. Injuries under these conditions tend to involve soft tissue trauma which require proactive early management to prevent delays in tissue healing and incomplete recovery.

At Fay Pedler Physiotherapy, we have a wealth of experience in treating sports injuries. We provide clear advice on acute injury management including how to reduce the extent of the injury. Active Physiotherapy treatment targets the tissue of concern promoting quick and complete healing reducing the time away from sport. We provide a structured rehab programme to develop a stronger athlete, reducing the risk of similar injuries in the future. Furthermore, we advise on what exercises are safe to continue with whilst you are side-lined as we know the importance of maintaining athletic conditioning.
