Athlete receiving sports physiotherapy for enhanced performance

Maximising Performance: The Role of Sports Physiotherapy at 101 Physio


Understanding Sports Physiotherapy

Sports Physiotherapy is a specialised branch of physiotherapy that focuses on the prevention, assessment, and treatment of sports-related injuries. It is not only about addressing injuries but also about enhancing athletic performance, optimising biomechanics, and supporting overall well-being in the context of sports and physical activity.


Key Components

1. Injury Prevention

Prevention is at the core of sports physiotherapy. Our practitioners at 101 Physio work collaboratively with athletes to identify potential risk factors and design targeted interventions to reduce the likelihood of injuries, ultimately maximising performance and longevity in sports.

2. Assessment and Diagnosis

In the event of an injury, accurate assessment and diagnosis are paramount. Our sports physiotherapists employ specialised techniques to identify the root cause of injuries, allowing for precise and effective treatment plans tailored to the athlete’s specific needs.

3. Rehabilitation Programs

Rehabilitation is a key aspect of sports physiotherapy. Whether recovering from a sprain, strain, or post-surgical procedure, our practitioners design customised rehabilitation programs that focus on restoring strength, flexibility, and functionality to get athletes back to their peak performance.

4. Biomechanical Analysis

Biomechanical analysis is integral to sports physiotherapy. Our team assesses the athlete’s movement patterns to identify any imbalances or irregularities that may contribute to injuries. This analysis helps in developing strategies to optimise biomechanics and prevent future issues.
