Sports physiotherapy goals

After knowing what sports physiotherapy is, we will list and explain what its main objectives are.  To achieve this, it is essential to know the type of pathology that the patient has suffered, as well as the physiological limits, without forgetting the joints and neighboring structures of the injured part. The tissue needs certain deadlines to regenerate but the physiotherapist can help accelerate those times.

  2. Avoid risk risk factors . If we want to reduce the most common risks and symptoms of a possible injury, it is important to practice physical activity in the correct way.
  3. Evaluate the situation . Know how to decide if the patient can return to sports or not yet, reducing possible relapses in the future.
  4. Prevent injuries . This is one of the most important tasks of the sports physiotherapist and one of the least known. The health professional will help the athlete to prevent injuries.
  5. Improve Life Quality. In middle-aged people who continue to play sports, the role of the physiotherapist can help improve the quality of life of the athlete patient.
