What is Sports Physiotherapy?

Sports physiotherapy is a specialised branch of physiotherapy that focuses on sporting injuries. While our bodies are all the same, sports injuries often need to be managed differently. This is because athletes tend to put a higher demand on their body, which causes added stress to joints, muscles and bones.

Whether you’ve hurt yourself lifting weights in the gym, or you’ve torn a muscle playing high-level sport, our sports physiotherapists are here to help. We understand the strain placed on the human body when pursuing peak performance, and we can tailor plans to help get you back up and running quickly.

In addition to helping athletes recover from injuries, a sports physiotherapist also provides education. This may involve changing certain movements to prevent further injury, or recommending a different approach to physical activity. Patient education is all part of the service we provide at Burleigh Central Physio, because we want everybody to live their best life.

Who Needs Sports Physiotherapy on the Gold Coast?

Essentially anybody who enjoys high intensity physical activity may need sports physiotherapy on the Gold Coast. The injuries you suffer as an athlete are often more severe than a day-to-day muscle strain, and they need to be treated differently.

Sports physiotherapy is effective in dealing with any sports related injury, such as muscle strains, torn muscles, joint issues, overuse injuries and many more. You don’t need to be a top-level athlete either. We have many clients who are fitness fanatics, weekend warriors, social sportspeople as well as those competing at a higher level.

If you’ve suffered an injury while playing sport or exercising, give us a call today and book a consultation. It’s our goal to have you back to your best in no time.

What are the Benefits of Sports Physiotherapy?

The key benefits of sports physiotherapy are obviously getting back on your feet and back to the sports you love quickly. But you can also learn more about how the body works, how your joints and muscles interact with each other, and also the best way to avoid future injury.

Sports physiotherapists are specially trained to deal with high-performance injuries. In fact, they regularly undertake additional training to increase their knowledge and skills in this area. The treatment of sports injuries is constantly evolving, so you need experts who are enthusiastic about sports physio.

When you book a consultation with Burleigh Central Physio, you’re getting access to experts in the field of sports injuries. Not only does this give you a chance to recover quicker, but you’ll also leave with some self-care tips and strategies to reduce your injury risk.

Our Sports Physiotherapy Services in Burleigh

We offer a truly personalised sports physio service here at Burleigh Central Physio. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to the management of sports injuries because everybody is different. Everyone competes at different levels, has different expectations around recovery, and also participates in different sports. So many factors can influence how your injury is managed, and we understand how to prescribe the right treatment for each injury.

When you first visit us, you’ll have an assessment with a qualified sports physiotherapist. This will be an expert in the field who has a particular interest in sport injury management. You can feel safe and assured that you’re getting the best sports physiotherapy the Gold Coast can offer. During this initial assessment the physio will get to know you, understand your sport and most importantly assess your current injury.

A range of tests may take place, including testing your range of motion and checking the current level of function in the injured area. This informs your future treatment plan. Your physiotherapist will offer a range of treatment ideas, which may include exercises, ultrasound treatment, rest, strapping or any other method that best suits your injury.

Each recovery plan is tailored to your specific injury, the severity of your injury and your own recovery goals.
