Sports Physiotherapy Manchester
The aim of sports physiotherapy is not only to help the athlete return to play after suffering an injury, but also to provide them with the knowledge to prevent injuries from occurring in the future.
Our Manchester sports physios have a vast amount of sport-specific knowledge in the common injuries that occur during sport and know how to diagnose and treat acute, chronic and overuse injuries. Our physiotherapists are all sport lovers and some have been former athletes themselves. They’ve worked with many sports teams and individual sportsmen and women across all levels of competition.
Our physios can help with pre and post-op cases and have athletes in tip-top shape for their next big competition. We are educated on the latest evidence, and provide advice, a skilled assessment/diagnosis, and “hands-on” treatment and exercise protocols to assist recovery and prevent further injury.
What is Sports Physiotherapy?
Sports Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that specialises in dealing with injuries that occur during sports or for athletes looking to return to their sport injury free.
These injuries differ from the everyday injury because they are most likely due to high impact, repetitive strain and demanding levels of performance that place stress upon an athletes joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones.

Treatment for sports injuries is similar to how you would treat any other injuries; however the treatment process usually starts quicker and sometimes from the moment that the injury occurs.
It is important to seek treatment as soon as an injury develops so that the recovery time is quicker and the athlete can return to the sport they love as soon as possible.
At Total Restore Physiotherapy you would be in good hands with any one of our physiotherapists.
