What are the benefits of exercise physiotherapy

Sports physiotherapy

The development of sports physiotherapy was largely accompanied by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB). The training of sports physiotherapists was originally intended to provide better medical care in competitive sports. Today, however, sports physiotherapy is also offered to amateur athletes - a sports physiotherapist accompanies an athlete preventively with medical expertise or helps heal typical sports injuries as part of a therapy.

What exactly is sports physiotherapy?

According to the definition of the DOSB, sports physiotherapy primarily treats overloads in the areas of muscles, connective tissue, cartilage and bones caused by sports. If there is no treatment by a physiotherapist in the event of regular overload, microtraumas can occur here. However, the work of the sports physiotherapist usually ends as soon as acute injuries occur, which must be treated by a doctor. Here, sports physiotherapy is only active again as soon as it comes to rehabilitation after such a treatment.

Benefits of sports physiotherapy treatment

Those who do sports regularly can benefit greatly from a preventive visit to sports physiotherapy. The following effects are possible:

Preventive muscle building
Practice of movement patterns
Shortening the regeneration time
Increase in the overall load capacity

For preventive muscle building, we offer a wide range of training with equipment in our practice in Würzburg. Here, as part of physiotherapy, you can specifically train those muscle groups that are important for your sport and also prevent typical sports injuries.

By practicing movement patterns, movement sequences are automated, which then lead to healthier movement patterns during sport. Special exercises can also improve the regeneration time between exercise phases, which can significantly increase your overall resilience.

Methods of sports physiotherapy

For effective physical sport, a sports physiotherapist needs knowledge that goes beyond the specialist knowledge of normal physiotherapists. This begins with the assessment: Sports physiotherapists need detailed knowledge about the typical stress symptoms that can occur during sports. This also includes microtraumas that can occur if the patient is not treated. Such sports physiotherapeutic training is proven, for example, by a license from the DOSB.

From electrotherapy, in which muscle and tissue areas are specifically stimulated with electrical current, to thermotherapy with cold baths or warm packs made from healing fango volcanic mud, sports physiotherapists can choose from a wide variety of methods to prevent injuries or to support the healing processes in sports injuries. Which types of physiotherapy are ultimately used depends largely on the choice of sport and the physical requirements of the patient - the physiotherapy is just as individual here as the potential risks of sport.

A sports physiotherapist therefore needs both the technical basics of therapeutic training and a wealth of experience with a wide variety of sports and sports injuries. For this purpose, our practice in Würzburg has a selection of particularly experienced physiotherapists for your individual needs
