Sports injury physiotherapy focuses mainly on the rehabilitation phase, this includes:

• Recovery expectation and time to return to sport

• Identifying and understanding biomechanics relating to the injury

• Knowledge of sport specific demands

• Holistic approach to look at overall body alignment and imbalances

• Focus on power and agility retraining to optimise and improve sport performance

• Education on injury prevention and recurrence

The initial management is similar to non-sport related musculoskeletal injures aimed to: resolve pain; reduce swelling; facilitate healing; minimise scar tissue; regain mobility, strength, and stability. We then move towards regaining full function with sport specific exercises and address factors such as biomechanics, agility, power and injury prevention.
