Sports physiotherapists, particularly those that compete themselves, understand the stress and constraints that an athlete is under whilst trying to achieve greatness. They understand the mental and physical toll that injury setbacks can take and how heavily they can impact preparation for an event or competition. A sports physio is able to use both their perspective as a health professional as well as an athlete to provide their patient with the right guidance through their recovery plan or how to maximise results.
