Sports Physiotherapy

Sports Physiotherapy is injuries related to sports and exercise at all levels and ages. Sporting injuries can differ from everyday injuries. Athletes normally require high-level performance and demands placed upon their bodies. This places more pressure on the joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons and can make them prone to injury.

As an athlete, when you sustain a sidelining injury, you just want to get back to the sport you enjoy so much. Sports physical therapy can help you recover completely and as quickly as possible.

Physiotherapy helps athletes understand their physical condition and learn how to improve it. Physical therapy is generally understood to help you increase strength and function.

Sports physiotherapy serves athletes of all kinds, whether amateur or professional. The overall aim of sports Physiotherapy is to improve sports performance, prevent injury, and enhance strength and flexibility.

Ultimate Benefits of Sports Physiotherapy

  • Improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and posture
  • Reduce pain, weakness, and soreness after an injury
  • Prevent injuries (sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations) and/or their recurrence
  • Forestall or prevent the need for orthopedic surgery
  • Increase blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and improve healing
  • Reduce stress and tension in order to maximize sports performance
  • Sports Physiotherapy can address every area of the body, including the
  • spine, upper and lower extremities, hips, and more.

Geriatric Physiotherapy

Geriatric physiotherapy is a form of physiotherapy specifically geared toward older adults and their unique issues and challenges. Geriatric physiotherapy takes into account that older adults tend to become less active over time, experience a decrease in muscle strength, coordination, and reaction timing, and have a lower tolerance for physical activity.

Geriatric physiotherapy is different from other types of physiotherapy because it focuses more on building strength and endurance in older adults to help in the following ways:

  • Keeping active
  • Preventing deconditioning (reversal of previous conditioning)
  • Preventing muscle atrophy (the wasting away of muscles)
  • Decreasing the risk of falls and related injuries
  • Maintaining independence in performing daily activities.

Paediatric physiotherapy

Pediatric physiotherapy, or children’s physiotherapy, aims to manage or treat congenital diseases and acquired injuries in babies and children.

Common diagnoses that may require pediatric physiotherapy may include:

  • Cerebral palsy (CP)
  • Developmental delay
  • Torticollis (neck in a twisted condition)
  • Sports or play-related injuries
  • Autism
  • Toe walking
  • Spina bifida
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Hypotonia (muscle weakness)
  • Down syndrome.

The main objective is to provide children with full functionality so that they can reach their full potential, promote wellbeing and enjoy a good quality of life.

How Does Pediatric Physiotherapy Work?

The goal of physiotherapy is to improve flexibility, posture, strength, balance, skills and coordination of a child. A physiotherapist will use a variety of techniques such as muscle stretching, joint mobilization and manipulation, various therapeutic exercises to help improve the strength and range of motion for the child. Physiotherapists incorporate fun and play in their session and engage children through age-appropriate pediatric physiotherapy activities and exercises that don’t just help them but also keep them entertained and motivated.

Neurological physiotherapy

Neurological physiotherapy treats patients with neurological conditions, which are movement and functional disorders caused by impairments affecting the brain, spinal cord and the nervous system. Some of the conditions that we treat include:

  • Stroke
  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Balance and Mobility Issues
  • Difficulty in Walking
  • Ataxia

Benefits of Neurological Physiotherapy

Many patients with neurological conditions struggle with a loss of range of motion or function, muscle weakness, decreased balance and stamina, which may severely affect their daily routines. Targeted to improve strength, movement, balance and coordination, neurological physiotherapy works by stimulating the nervous system through various activities and exercises. Not only does neurological physiotherapy help with a patient’s mobility related disorders, it also helps them gain a better outlook and confidence on their conditions by improving their overall quality of life through:

  • Better balance and coordination
  • Improved walking
  • Optimized function on affected areas
  • Increased stamina and endurance
  • Increased strength and less tension in affected muscles
  • Reduced contractures
  • Optimized independence

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

The musculoskeletal system is made up of the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage of human body. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is a combination of techniques and strategies to help restore movement and function to an individual who has been injured or has a musculoskeletal disorder. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy aims to help the patient recover from their condition more quickly through regular treatment sessions and to develop coping strategies to aid the patient during the recovery process and prevent secondary problems from occurring. This is achieved by manual therapy, education, exercise rehabilitation and finding alternative ways to accomplish your goals and live your best life.
Musculoskeletal Disorder Symptoms
Since the term “musculoskeletal disorder” covers a broad range of disorders, injuries, and conditions, many different symptoms might arise. The most common symptoms include:

  • Joint pain
  • Tenderness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms or cramps
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Aching
  • Stiffness
  • Burning sensations
  • Pain that increases with activity

However, it’s important to note that these symptoms may vary depending on your specific situation. For instance, arthritis is usually associated with joint pain, inflammation, and reduced range of motion. Meanwhile, piriformis syndrome is linked to muscle spasms and pain when performing certain activities, such as walking up the stairs.

Some other common musculoskeletal conditions include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures
  • Muscle strain
  • Joint sprain
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Back and neck pain.

Cupping therapy

Cupping is an ancient healing therapy that some people use to ease pain. A provider places cups on your back, stomach, arms, legs or other parts of your body. Inside the cup, a vacuum or suction force pulls skin upward.

How does cupping work?

Suction from cupping draws fluid into the treated area. This suction force expands and breaks open tiny blood vessels under the skin. Your body treats the cupping area like an injury. It sends more blood to the area to stimulate the natural healing process.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy has a reputation for easing discomfort and improving quality of life. The following conditions may improve with this treatment:

Low-back pain: Cupping can help lessen pain and improve function among people with acute and chronic low-back pain.

Fibromyalgia: Cupping therapy, has successfully relieved pain in patients with fibromyalgia, a condition of widespread musculoskeletal pain.

Chronic neck pain: Cupping therapy can help relax neck muscles and make them more flexible.

Carpal tunnel syndrome: Cupping may help reduce pain and numbness associated with carpal tunnel syndrome, which affects the hands and wrists.

Laser Therapy

Cold Laser uses light energy at various wavelengths depending on the purpose needed and the injury being treated. The light energy promotes a photochemical reaction which increases cellular metabolism. This will expedite cell repair by creating more ATP and it stimulates the immune, lymphatic, nervous and circulatory system. The benefit that Cold Laser Therapy has is the depth that it can penetrate. Research has shown that Cold Laser can penetrate over 5 centimeters, which is more than 2 inches. This is perfect for getting into joint spaces of great depth and deeper into fleshy tissue. Unlike with Ultrasound, the speckle field created allows for the tissue to affect the entire depth of penetration. This makes it very efficient and effective.

Cold Laser alone has shown to help reduce scar tissue, inflammation, adhesions, and pain. It also will create more cell activity to increase the speed of recovery in most cases. When used in addition to our PT treatments, we are giving our patients the best chance to recover fully. Cold Laser is just one of the many tools we use to stay up to date with innovative technology when it comes to patient care.

Some injuries that Laser therapy has been effective in treating are:

  • Sprains (Ligament & tendon injuries)
  • Slip disc with Nerve compression
  • Wounds and abrasions
  • Hematomas bruises
  • Inflammation
  • Joint injuries
  • Myofascial trigger points, pain points, and deep-tissue acupuncture
  • points
  • Chronic & acute pain
  • Bone FracturesSports Injuries (Return to sport faster, professional athlete)

A powerful tool used by many physiotherapists, electrotherapy treats chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries, muscle wasting, and nerve pain by using targeted and controlled electrical stimulation.

Electrotherapy is a gentle and non-invasive modality that works by stimulating nerves and muscles through the surface of the skin. Though it varies based on which device your practitioner uses, electrotherapy is thought to work in a variety of ways:

  • Send out electrical impulses that block or interfere with the body’s pain signals, leading to reduced pain.
  • Help release endorphins (chemical messengers) that naturally decrease pain in the body.
  • Stimulate muscle tissue to contract to reduce atrophy.
  • Create a heating effect within the body which improves circulation and stimulates healing.
  • Stimulate cells which reduce inflammation, promote collagen production, and inhibit pain.

6 Main Types of Electrotherapy Treatment

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

One of the most common electrotherapy treatments, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) makes use of small devices which deliver pulses of electrical stimulation. The goal of the TENS machine is to stimulate sensory nerves to achieve pain relief and is often used for both nerve pain and chronic pain conditions.

Interferential (IFT)

Also known as IFT, interferential electrotherapy uses low-frequency electrical stimulation to stimulate muscles, increase blood flow, and reduce pain. IFT is sometimes used for patients who dislike the sensation of TENS electrotherapy.

Shockwave Therapy

In shockwave therapy, acoustic waves with high energy are used to treat conditions. Like therapeutic ultrasound, shockwave therapy makes use of a transducer with gel. This therapy is used to help stimulate collagen production, release painful trigger points, and reduce inflammation in the body. It’s also very useful for musculoskeletal conditions like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and Achilles tendinopathy.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

While some methods of electrotherapy target nerves, EMS targets muscle tissue. This specialised form of electrotherapy stimulates your motor neurons which causes your muscles to contract. This is often used in cases to treat and prevent muscle atrophy.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound Therapy is used to heat tissues and introduce energy into the body.

Deep Heating Effects

Ultrasound can provide deep heating to soft tissue structures in the body. Deep heating tendons, muscles, or ligaments could have the following benefits:

  • Increase circulation to tissues
  • Speed the healing process
  • Decrease pain
  • Increase elasticity
  • Deep heating can increase the “stretchiness” of muscles and tendons that may be tight.

Non-Thermal Effects (Cavitation)

In addition to heat, ultrasound introduces energy into the body. This energy causes microscopic gas bubbles around your tissues to expand and contract rapidly, a process called cavitation.

It is theorized that the expansion and contraction of these bubbles help speed cellular processes and help injured tissue heal faster.

How Does Ultrasound Work?

Inside ultrasound unit is a small crystal. When an electrical charge hits this crystal, it vibrates rapidly, creating piezoelectric waves (an electric charge that accumulates in some solid materials). These waves emit from the ultrasound sound head as ultrasound waves.

During treatment, the ultrasound wave then enters into your injured tissues. This exposure to ultrasonic waves increases blood flow and cavitation, leading to the theorized benefits of the treatment

When Is It Used?

Physiotherapist may use therapeutic ultrasound to treat some injuries and chronic pain Usually treat orthopedic (musculoskeletal) injuries with ultrasound. These may include

  • Bursitis (inflammation in the fluid-filled sacs along joints)
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sprains and ligament injuries
  • Joint contracture or tightness

Generally speaking, any soft-tissue injury in the body can heal from ultrasound therapy. For example, your Physiotherapist may use ultrasound for low back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff tears, knee meniscus tears, or ankle sprains.

Short wave Diathermy ( SWD)


Shortwave diathermy uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to generate heat. It may be applied in pulsed or continuous energy waves. It has been used to treat low muscle and joint pain and pelvic inflammatory disease. It’s commonly used for conditions that cause pain and muscle spasms such as:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Bursitis
  • Tenosynovitis

What are the benefits of diathermy?

Treating injuries with heat can increase blood flow and make connective tissue more flexible. It can also help minimize inflammation and reduce the incidence of edema, or fluid retention.

By increasing blood flow to the site of an injury, the deep heat generated with diathermy can accelerate healing.

Diathermy is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Myositis
  • Neuralgia
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tenosynovitis
  • Tendonitis.
