What is Sports Therapy?

“sports therapy uses a range of therapeutic techniques for the prevention, recognition and treatment of minor sports injuries or related wear and tear. It can also be used to provide support with people wanting to maintain and improve fitness. A typical session will involve appraising the injury using a number of techniques including posture analysis, gait analysis, biomechanical assessment, as well as soft tissue assessment. The session itself may include soft tissue therapy, mechanical and electrical treatment, cooling or warming therapy and mobilisation. Sports therapy may be used to address an extensive range of injuries and illness. Sports therapy may also be found to be helpful in the mental preparation of athletes for sporting participation.” CNHC
