Physiotherapy for sports injury in Preston

What is sports physiotherapy?

The specialised branch of physiotherapy that treats injuries and other issues faced by athletes is known as sports physiotherapy.


It's critical to realise that sports injuries are distinct from common injuries. Sportsmen and sportswomen often need to perform actively, and the demands placed on their bodies put extreme stress on their bones, muscles, and joints. Sports physiotherapists, like Billy Gilhooley at Specific Physiotherapy Preston, assist athletes in recovering from sports injuries and provide education and tools to help prevent problems from recurring.


Our physiotherapist Billy Gilhooley has expertise dealing with acute, chronic, and overuse injuries sustained in sports including basketball, cricket, and football. This is why it's crucial to consult a sports physiotherapist who is familiar with the intricate details of your specific sport.


How does a physiotherapist treat sports injury?

Sports Physiotherapists possess substantial understanding of the latest evidence-based practice, skilled analysis and diagnosis of sports injuries, and are competent in the use of effective ‘hands-on’ treatment techniques and exercise protocols to help healing as well as prevent injury.


Who should I trust to manage your sports injury?

A physiotherapist who is either a sports physiotherapist or a physiotherapist with a great focus on sports injuries, typically with a background in sports injury and therapy, is most suited to manage sports injuries.


In order to treat a sporting injury organically, a sports injury facility uses the professions of sports medicine, sports physiotherapy, sports massage, and sports rehabilitation. Billy Gilhooley at Specific Physiotherapy is pleased to offer these services and frequently produces outstanding outcomes by utilising such a multidisciplinary approach.
