Sports injury physiotherapy assesses and treats injuries from physical activity. These injuries affect the muscles, bones and joints, or soft tissue areas of the body.
Injuries can occur through a fall or heavy blow during activity, improper training techniques, not warming up correctly or pushing yourself too hard too soon. Knees and ankles are the most common sports injuries, but any area of the body can be affected.
