How Physiotherapy in Ealing Helps Athletes Get Back on Track Faster

By: BryanKelly (Psst, View author in Google Plus) Date: Oct 14th, 2016

Athletes must face great physical demands from the sports that they play. From a highly regimented training system to a dedicated commitment to a healthy lifestyle, they must always be in tiptop shape and condition so that they can deliver their best performance every time they play. This is where physiotherapy can help.

Ealing Physiotherapy Helps Injured Athletes Get Back In Shape In No Time

It is, however, inevitable, for athletes to experience body pain, such as sore muscles or even injuries as a result of all their physical activities. For this, this will need the services of physiotherapy in Ealing or elsewhere, so that they can be on track to fast recovery.

Physiotherapy for Sports


Essentially, the practice of physiotherapy is specifically for the treatment and rehabilitation of an injury or disability, as well as illness, through a combination of methods including exercise, therapy, and education. It is recommended for athletes precisely because the activities they do on a regular basis is a lot more physically demanding to other “normal” day to day activities.

The intense training alone of athletes already makes them susceptible to faster wear and tear of the muscles, as well as increases their vulnerability to injuries. Conditions such as back pain, sprained ankles, joint pains, and more could also lead to further complications which may end up affecting their athletic capabilities down the line.

Strains – This normally goes away on its own and is no cause for serious concern. However, for athletes, this is something that must be addressed immediately especially if it shows no sign of relief. Ideally, an Ealing physio practitioner can start applying treatment 72 hours after the muscle strain first occurred.

Observing this time frame is crucial so that the strain will have enough time to subside, and the athlete won’t be subjected to as much pain. It’s likely that a gentle massage will be applied, along with exercises, to improve blood flow and circulation.

Muscle Pain and Tears – Tense muscles must be relieved through intensive massage therapy. This should help warm the muscles, thereby improving blood flow and reducing the stiffness. For tears, on the other hand, physiotherapy could come in handy by providing pain relief and improved flexibility.

Fractured Bones – It’s crucial that the fractured or broken bone heals completely first before any other therapeutic methods are implemented. Physiotherapy, in this case, comes only as support to building muscle strength and revitalizing nerve activity. Because bones tend to heal longer, the rehabilitation of both muscles and bones will take longer than in any other therapy setting.

What’s most important is that athletes can rely on physiotherapy so that they can get back to their sport faster.
