If you are active in sports, whether at an intermediate level or a professional level where your livelihood relies on optimal peak performance, then you will appreciate the need to maintain the ongoing health and mobility of your body.
As a sportsperson, you constantly put your body under a fair amount of strain, and as a result requires an ongoing body maintenance plan. This is where you could seek the services of a Sports Physio, to keep your muscles and body performing correctly.
The role of a Sports Physio, is to work with sportspeople to not only assess their current training regime, but to also diagnose movement disorders, which may inhibit the body’s ability to perform the best it can be. A Sports Physiotherapist can help to increase mobility and reduce stiffness, which may occur from constant vigorous training sessions. The Sports Physio can implement an appropriate training plan which will be in line with the sportspersons specific needs and as a result may also help to reduce potential injuries.
Sports Physio’s provide an array of treatment methods, which may include:
Soft Tissue Massage
Muscle re-education to reduce stiffness and pain
Specific exercise programs to strengthen muscles
As sportspeople do not require referrals from Doctors to see Sports Physiotherapists, sportspeople can have the confidence to seek the services of Sports Physiotherapists in their local areas, so they can get an assessment as quickly as possible, in-order to help them on their road to recovery, or onto a dedicated training schedule, to aid their short-term goals.
Assess pain or injuries quickly to reduce down-time in training
Recommend alternate methods of exercises more specific to the athletes needs
Provide ongoing advice and monitoring to the individual to enhance performance
Additionally, Sports Physiotherapists in Castle Hill, Wetherill Park or Parramatta, also work with sporting teams as well as individuals. This means that sporting teams may benefit from having an over-arching training and rehabilitation schedule, which assesses the sporting team as-a-whole.

A Sports Physiotherapist who has the ability-to work with a sporting team, may often travel with the team or be available to treat their sporting patients collectively, hence giving the sporting team more time to go about their training, without the need to travel independently to other physiotherapists.
