At Therapy First Physiotherapy we take sports Injury very seriously, treating players from football/rugby clubs to local amateur athletes from the MediaCityUK and Greater Manchester area.
We believe that we excel in diagnosing injuries. Sports Physiotherapy is somewhat different to standard physiotherapy in the sense that it centres on the treatment and prevention of injuries obtained through sport and exercise.
A sports physiotherapist is a specialist in understanding the physical stresses that sports can place on an athlete and their body. These extreme demands can lead to pain and injury.
At Therapy-First Physiotherapy our trained physiotherapist will be able to analyse, examine a sporting action and correlate or connect it to your pain or injury. Once a diagnosis is made only then will the treatment commence.
In spite of using many comparable treatment methods to standard physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy encourages the injury to heal, to some extent, in a different way.
At Therapy-First Physiotherapy our team understands that as an athlete or an up-and-coming sportsman the last famous words you don’t want to hear is “you can’t train, run or compete”
The team at Therapy-First Physiotherapy will do all they can to find ways to keep you in the game and performing by treating your injury and alleviating your pain whilst the healing and recovery process takes place.
