Sports therapy specifically focuses on the prevention of injury and rehabilitation of a patient so they return to optimum levels of performance and function. Athletes often benefit from sports therapy due to the strain placed on their bodies during competition and training. Utilizing the principles of sport and exercise sciences, sports therapy readily assists with the preparation of these competition and training practices.
Sports therapists provide immediate care of injuries and support patients during the recreational, training and competitive environment. Whether an injury is being prevented or rehabilitated after the cause, sports therapists provide patients with massage, exercise and appropriate intervention on a case-by-case basis. Working to get the athlete back to optimal performance, a sports therapist is often the first line of defense when injury occurs.
