Sport Physiotherapy

Acute and recurrent sports injuries can ruin a whole performance season and the hard training you did before a sport event.

Injuries can stop your career if you are a professional athlete or dancer. Sport Physiotherapy can help you prevent and recover from sport injuries.

We love sport and dance as much as you do and we will do our best to get you back to your activities as safely and quickly as possible.

Got injured playing football or hockey and strained your groin? Are you preparing for a marathon like the Great North Run but your Achilles’ tendon is playing up again? Or you pulled your hamstrings or your quadriceps? Are you a keen tennis player but you are limited by a tennis elbow? Are you an elite athlete or a hobby golfer?  Or you are an expert martial artist but your shoulder is killing you? Do you like swimming? Or do you want to be ready for rugby or cricket season but your back pain keeps you awake? Or you love dancing  but your hip clicks and hurts?

Sport physiotherapy at Swissphysio will help you.

Extensive experience in sport & fitness

We have extensive experience in the treatment of fitness, sport, and dance related injuries. We are very familiar with the performance pressure on artists and athletes and the physical and psychological demands of their activities. Prompt treatment and intensive rehabilitation programs will help you recover completely from injury, maintaining a high level of fitness. 

What to expect

First we will assess you thoroughly, then we discuss our findings with you and suggest a course of treatment. This will take into consideration the demands of every individual athlete or dancer. We focus on your needs in regards to your performance goals and time in the competition season or in the regeneration phase.

Working as a team we will combine different approaches: the most advanced physiotherapy techniques, traditional Chinese acupuncture, Kinesio taping, stretching sessions, massages, and electrotherapy. A big variety of massages will help keep the muscles supple and ready to perform.

Rehab on the beach

At times we also use the beautiful beach of King Edward as a perfect ground to train. Your balance, coordination and endurance will be challenged in a fun way. We will be able to advise you about optimization of your training regime or create your own new one.

We are also very familiar with the often frustrating reoccurring sport injuries, with the treatment of chronic and therapy resistant pains and also female pelvic problems.
