What Can Sports Therapy Do For You?

From basketball (Michael Jordan), to golf (Tiger Woods), to tennis (Novac Djokovic), to UFC fighters (Israel Adesanya) — they’ve all attributed their success to both sports therapy and chiropractic care at some point in their career. Even professional sports teams in the Premier League or NFL rely heavily on the insights and work closely with the recommendations by their medical staff.

What is the difference between Sports Therapist and Physiotherapist?

Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy can look similar. The focus is on getting the sportsperson to understand:

  • Why they are feeling pain or discomfort after an injury
  • What that injury means for their body
  • How they are able to return to sport sooner
  • And when they can return to training or competition

 

The Difference…?

Because sportspeople are much more active than most of the general population, there is a significant strain placed on their bodies regularly. This creates more opportunities for strain and injury. And often, when injuries happen, athletes are on a time limit — they need to be able to get back as fast as they can.

Sports Therapy Emphasizes RECOVERY: 3 Steps

EVALUATION: INITIAL CONSULTATIONS.

Know what’s happening so a treatment direction can be planned.

RESTORATION: REST & RELIEF.

We utilise chiropractic adjustments, sports massage sessions, and dry needling among others to target areas of muscle imbalance and joint restrictions that are hindering recovery. 

INJURY PREVENTION: MOVEMENT RETRAINING.

Where applicable, injuries may happen from overused movement patterns (think a thrower who uses their front chest muscles a lot). Retraining the other smaller muscles around the joint through Rehabilitation can go a long way in preventing injury.

 

UTILIZE THE TIME OF HEALING YOUR BODY TO PRIME IT FOR THE NEXT TIME YOU CRUSH YOUR GOALS.

Sometimes, off days are needed. When our bodies go through too much — Training, Loading, Pushing our limits doing what we love — We make sure that we keep it conditioned and maintained for the long run. After all, it’s not just about how much you can push but for how long can you sustain that journey.
