Cardiff based Sports Massage and Physiotherapy
Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that concentrates specifically with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of movement and/or functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability. A sports therapist uses a variety of physical techniques to bring about a physiological change within soft tissues. It concentrates on the musculo-skeletal side of things from the outset.
It uses the principles of sport & exercise sciences which incorporates physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant/client for training, competition and where applicable, work.
