A sports therapy degree practices an in-depth study of human anatomy and physiology. Therapists apply this knowledge to assess and diagnose sporting injuries. A sports therapist, therefore, understands the dynamics of injury and the practicality of injury prevention. They have the skills and expertise to apply pre- and post-exercise massage in order to prevent injury and enhance performance. The training also means that sports therapists are able to utilise exercise principles to optimise preparation and injury prevention programmes.
For athletes at any level, sport therapists are able to utilise the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and, where applicable, work.
In short, our team of sports therapists is able to offer:
• Injury Prevention• Recognition and evaluation of injury management • Treatment and referral • Rehabilitation • Education and counseling
