Role of Physiotherapy in Sports Conditions
1. Immediate Relief of Pain
At R.D.Physiotherapy Clinic we provide immediate pain relief by providing treatment for pain, depending on the nature of the injury. This can include providing hot or cold packs, taping certain areas of the body, hands on treatment or dry needling which can ease or relieve muscular tension. Our team of physiotherapists are knowledgeable in their treatment, which allows them to assess and target the source of pain.
2. Prevent Injury
Regular visits to a physiotherapist is an essential part of keeping healthy for athletes. They can assess current movement and identify areas of weakness or minor inflammation which could otherwise have led to injury. They can assist with building up strength appropriate for the sports being undertaken, and in this way can prevent injury from occurring in the first place, something all athletes wish to avoid.
3. Tailored Treatment Plans - to specific clients
At R.D. Physiotherapy and Fitness Clinic in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad, our team of Physiotherapists will design a focused training plan specific to the client or athlete’s areas of weakness and can make adjustments for current or previous injury limitations. We works one-on-one to develop and challenge an athlete’s limitations, whilst building the strength of ligaments, joints, bones and muscles, in order to improve their performance. A tailored treatment plan helps an athlete to reach their full potential.
4. Promotes Relaxation
Having a healthy body can lead to a happier and healthier individual, making a well-rounded sports person. Hands on treatment by a physiotherapist is also effective in relaxing muscular tension. Assistance from a qualified physiotherapist gives a sports person peace of mind knowing they are in the best possible hands for their sports needs or injury management.
5. Injury Treatment
A sports injury cannot always be prevented and unfortunately it occurs to many athletes from time to time. Drawing from their vast knowledge from their training and experience, physiotherapists can assist with achieving a faster rate of recovery from injury and improve healing time by providing specific exercises and treatment. The types of treatments depend on the injury and its severity, as well as the physio’s knowledge of the individual.
6. Cardiopulmonary Training
In addition to hands on treatment and exercises, physiotherapists can also provide assistance with cardiopulmonary training to enhance cardio fitness. This practice is a beneficial tool for athletes wanting to improve endurance, breathing and build their fitness.
Increasing muscle and joint flexibility is a key component of treatment with a physiotherapist. Improved flexibility results from the exercises performed which can lead to a greater chance of preventing injury.
