FAQ

Why do sports teams have in-house physiotherapists?

Typically, sports teams will have an in-house physiotherapist to oversee the players at the club; this could be at training or on match days. The main focus is on diagnosing, managing, and addressing acute, sub-acute or chronic issues. The physio will liaise with the medical staff and the manager to inform them of time frames for return to sport or recommendations regarding injury management on and off the field.

How often should an athlete see a physiotherapist?

If the goal is to return to amateur sport, then that might take fewer sessions per week/month than a professional or semi-professional athlete who wants to return to multiple training sessions per week.

Will regular visits and strengthening prevent sports injuries?

There is strong evidence that a progressive strength/rehabilitation training program decreases the risk of sports injuries recurring, as long as it is progressive and overload is not applied too quickly.

What might a physiotherapist do to improve performance?

A physiotherapist can assess any weaknesses that need strengthening, and tailor the rehab to mimic the sport.
