SPORTS PHYSIO

Sports Injuries hinder one’s performance. They include injuries ranging from a dislocated shoulder to sprained ankle. It is extremely important that players and athletes are adequately rehabilitated before returning to sport. 

If you have any sporting injury it is best to consult a sports physiotherapist during the acute phase of an injury, i.e. within 48-72 hours. This will help the physiotherapist to diagnose your injury properly and treat it before it becomes chronic. 

 

Physiotherapists at BSI will assess your injury and design a treatment and rehabilitation plan and help you to return to your sport as early as possible.
