Physiotherapists can be involved in the care and well-being of athletes including recreational, semi-professional and professional participants.
This area of practice encompasses complete athletic injury management under 5 main categories:
1. Acute care - assessment and diagnosis of an initial injury.
2. Treatment - application of the expert's advice and techniques to encourage healing.
3. Rehabilitation - progressive management for full return to sport.
4. Prevention - identification and address of deficiencies known to directly result in, or act as precursors to injury.
5. Education - sharing of specialized knowledge with individual athletes, teams or clubs to assist in prevention or management of injury.
