Sports Physio

We have vast experience in sports injuries here at Sligo Physio Space, whether you are a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, you are in safe hands. We have extensive knowledge of biomechanics and the functional requirements for your sport or activity, which we utilise to get you back to health. With sports injuries it is important we get a detailed assessment of your injury, and use this to provide you with a detailed treatment plan using the most up to date evidence. The key to recovery and prevention of similar injuries is gaining an understanding of the cause of the problem and fixing all potential causes of the problem. Rehabilitation will focus on a speedy recovery and may involve hands on treatment to ease any stiffness and pain, facilitating improved movement by reducing strain on overloaded structures. For a full sporting recovery exercise is essential and we will focus on flexibility, control and strength.
