People practising sports at both amateur and professional level are well aware that physiotherapy has a crucial role in the psycho-physical well-being of athletes.
If sports are healthy on the one hand, it is equally true that they put the body under a remarkable stress and expose it to the risk of injury, especially at top levels. The role of physiotherapy is to support athletes in each and every step of their preparation, from training to competitions, and to help them recover from competition-related physical fatigue and mental stress.
Physiotherapy is used preventively in the form of muscle and joint massages in order to offer the athlete the opportunity to recover from any built-up fatigue and to eliminate the stress caused by physical exercise. Moreover, it helps to identify movements likely to cause accidents during the physical activity and to correct them so as to reduce the risk of injuries.
The role of the physiotherapist is even more crucial when an injury needs to be treated, irrespective of it being a degenerative problem, such as back pain or tendinitis, or a problem associated to a specific traumatic event (sprains, lesions, etc.). In this case, the work of the professional consists in helping the athlete quickly recover from his/her injury and go back to sports activities in optimised conditions.
Over the years, physiotherapy too has embraced technological evolutions and innovations in order to maximise the effects of conventional treatments such as manual therapy, stretching, sports massages and motor rehabilitation.
The physiotherapist is indeed very sensitive to whatever can promote the physiological acceleration of an athlete’s recovery. Often, quick recovery is really a crucial factor for successful completion of a sports season, but it cannot and must not happen without taking the necessary time to have certain and long-lasting results. This is only possible when recovery involves the entire body, a necessary condition for the best possible performance from a physical and mental standpoint.
