Sports physiotherapy is one of many specialties aimed at providing amateur and professional athletes with necessary rehabilitation, care and prevention, in addition to providing proper guidelines to those patients who practice a physical activity and want to do it safely.
In order to correctly assess the injuries sustained by an athlete, it is necessary to have extensive knowledge of the specific biomechanics of each sport. Furthermore, once the injury has been healed, specific knowledge of the movements involved in the sport is necessary in order to ensure the patient’s safe return to physical activity, by allowing for a proper rehabilitation and reducing the risk of recurrence.
The application of manual techniques such as massage therapy, kinesiotherapy and manipulative therapies, in addition to analytical, global and proprioceptive kinesic methods of functional recovery – including various types of bandages, specific stretching, hydrotherapy, electrotherapy and thermotherapy – are key disciplines within the field of sports physiotherapy. Feel free to ask about each one of these, and we will be happy to explain their respective benefits, as well as which sports each one is best suited for.
In addition to helping patients recover from injury, the sports physiotherapist also helps with their prevention.
The prevention of injuries is also an essential part of our daily work. We prepare and propose routines – featuring tables, charts and protocols – that make it possible to greatly reduce the risk of injury.
