Whether you're recovering from an injury or just looking to improve your overall fitness level, sports therapy can help. Get started today! Sports therapy is a branch of the soft tissue therapy that deals with the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and physical activity. The different treatments involved in sports therapy can include advanced massage techniques (aka soft tissue therapy), acupuncture dry needling and medical acupuncture types), chiropractic & osteopathic manipulations (not all ST's offer this) and exercise rehabilitation. Sports therapy can benefit you by helping to prevent injuries, speed up the healing process, and improve your overall performance. It can also help to reduce pain and inflammation, increase range of motion, and improve flexibility. Sports Therapy involves "Hands on" treatment, to work on soft tissue injuries, can include Acupuncture, Vibrations and Cupping. Suffering from a sports injury can be frustrating, especially if you're not sure how to treat it. Booking a sports therapy session can help you get on the road to recovery and learn how to prevent future injuries. Kinesiology taping is a popular treatment for injuries, but it's not the only thing that sports therapists can do for you. Sports therapists are trained in a variety of techniques to help you recover from your injury and get back to your normal activities. Sports therapy is different from massage in that it focuses on rehabilitating injuries and helping prevent future injuries. Massage can be helpful for relaxation and stress relief, but it's not going to help you heal an injury or prevent one from happening. If you've ever been injured while playing sports / activities / exercise, chances are you've seen a sports therapist, or a similar allied health professional. They work with people to help them recover from injuries and prevent future ones.
