Sports Therapy is a truly holistic approach to health, effectively utilising a diverse range of targeted techniques and treatments to restore optimum health.
What is Sports Therapy?
Sports Therapy has previously been an undervalued and completely misunderstood practice, that only in very recent times is finally beginning to receive the credit which it truly deserves.
Far from being restricted to just injured athletes, Sports Therapy is a highly effective way of treating both acute and chronic injuries, as well as a plethora of soft tissue, neurological, and joint related problems. It is now even finding its way into the effective treatment of psychological and stress related conditions.
From elite athlete and weekend warrior, to dog walker, office employee, and post- natal mother, the practice of Sports Therapy can prove to be immensely beneficial.
Sports Therapy is a complete and comprehensive cycle of care. Progressing from assessment to diagnosis, through to treatment and rehabilitation, the goal is not just to treat the symptom, but to identify the root cause. Thus allowing the client to return to, or in many cases, find for the first time a place of optimal physical, psychological and emotional health.
