  1. 1. ready to serve

  3. 3. There is nothing we like to see more than people at the top of their game in a given sporting event improve even further after wehave helped attain even higher goals. All of usat Physio in Leeds are actively participating in sport, some at amateur level, and others at semi-professional standards.
  4. 4. Firstly, lets lose the myth that sports physiotherapy is only for those who areinjured or have sustained a niggling problemwith their fitness. Sports physiotherapy exists for those who are in tip top condition and needing physiotherapy to prevent injury. A sportsman who indulges in a game withouthaving the required levels of fitness is clearly prone to injury.
  5. 5. It is a cold hard fact that if you are fit and have received the right sports physiotherapy while you are not injured, you are less likely to become injured whilst indulging in your sport. Our physio in Leeds will look at smallthings that most sports participants overlook; trigger point therapy and what we call PNF stretching (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching).
  6. 6. Physio in Leeds will also perform sports massage; tennis players with upper arm cramp, footballers with Achilles tendons tightness and rugby player back with neck injuries and stiffness, all of which requireloosening of the muscle and tissue clustering so that it can be released back into the bloodstream where it can be expelled by sweating or urination.
  7. 7. Loosening muscles in this fashion allows theindividual to remain at the top of their gameand run less risk of injury. Other methods we use in improving sports physiotherapy are manipulation and mobilization techniques, soft tissue (these can be prone to injury) to cure niggling injuries that may not sideline you but cause you to take pain killing injections before a vital competitive game.
  8. 8. At Physio in Leeds we work with sportsmen and women and help to achieve a level of fitness they probably thought wasunobtainable. Our sports physiotherapists can improve mobility, improve performance by physiotherapy treatments and prevent theobvious injuries from recurring. Our physio in Leeds can toughen up those weak points which make sports stars so vulnerable to injury.
  9. 9. Remember, prevention is better than cure, and this is very true in physiotherapy forthose sportsmen and women who only attendthe treatment room when they are injured. So,take a look and check us out today at sports- performance section of our page to see how we can help improve your performance levels in sport.
