Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation

What is Sports Therapy?

Sports Therapy is concerned with injury rehabilitation – with the aim of getting the client back to functional, occupational and sport specific fitness irrespective of age and ability.  In a perfect world we work towards injury prevention however clients often self-refer to our clinic with a pre-existing injury.

A Sports Therapist has the knowledge and skill to: (reference

  • utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance, preparation and injury prevention programmes
  • provide the immediate care of injuries and basic life support in a recreational, training and competitive environment
  • assess, treat and, where appropriate, refer on for specialist advice and intervention
  • provide appropriate sport and remedial massage in a sport & exercise context
  • plan and implement appropriate rehabilitation programs


Our descriptions of types of massage are not definitive and written in our own words.  Every treatment will be unique, as a blend of techniques and skills will be used to perform the most effective treatment for you as an individual and your requirements.  Occasionally we will refer you to a different practitioner such as a physiotherapist or osteopath to provide a more appropriate treatment if necessary.
