Abbey Physiotherapy's purpose has always been to help keep you healthy, active and enjoying the sports and activities that you love.
Whether your sport is running the Bosworth Half Marathon, playing football for Nuneaton Borough FC, Rugby for Nuneaton Old Edwardians or even climbing Mount Everest, each injury has to be considered in the context of the demands of the activity. As well as getting athletes out of pain and back to full function, sports physiotherapists are also focused on the performance and development of the individual.
Sports Physiotherapy is the specialised branch of physiotherapy dedicated to the assessment and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise at all levels and ages. Sporting injuries can differ from everyday injuries. Athletes normally require high-level performance and demands placed upon their bodies. This places more pressure on the joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons and can make them prone to injury.
A sports physiotherapist is a trained professional who assesses and treats sports-related injuries. Physiotherapy helps people regain strength and movement in parts of the body after an injury. Physical therapy can also help a person in relieving pain and prevent permanent damage and recurring problems

It is due to physiotherapists' broad knowledge base and medical background that they are able to treat a wide variety of illnesses, diseases, and neurological and respiratory issues. Hence, they are ideal for treating a wide range of patients, including those with multiple conditions.
Sports therapists generally have more exposure to sporting environments at an undergraduate level making them ideal for preventing musculoskeletal sports injuries through specific strengthening programmes. By rehabilitating patients, physiotherapy allows them to feel comfortable and cope with their everyday lives. In contrast, sports therapy is more concerned with rehab, whether the patient has returned to or is able to maintain the physical level necessary to participate in any sport.
Athletes of all levels are eager to participate in competitions and tournaments. If you are an injured athlete, you know how critical it is to recover quickly so you can get back to doing what you love. Some sports injuries are inevitable, but many of them can be prevented. Poor training methods, lack of preparation, and inadequate warm-up are some of the causes of sports injuries. Injuries often occur during competitions, organized sports, fitness classes, or exercises. Be it a fracture, joint dislocation, sprain, or strain you want to recover from, you require physiotherapy
