How Does Soccer Physiotherapy Work?
The aim of soccer physio is to help restore and improve normal body function so, as well as treating your injury, your physiotherapist might give you ideas on how to improve your life and health in general to improve yourself. There is a huge range of different types of physiotherapy, all of which are used to treat you differently.
- Massage and manipulation – This involves moving your body’s soft tissue with the hands. It can help improve circulation, body and muscle movement, relieve pain, and help you relax.
- Movement and exercise – Exercise programmes can be tailored to you and your goals. They should be done daily for a few weeks or months to make sure that you’re healing completely. Your physiotherapist will work with you in the gym to make sure you’re doing them right to gain the best benefits.
- Electrotherapy – Electric currents and impulses can shock the nervous system into working properly and improving its function. They make your muscles contract and help speed up the healing process.
- Hydrotherapy – This takes place in the water, where the resistance of the water pushes against your body as you exercise and float. It can help improve circulation, relax muscles, and relieve pain.
How Can Physiotherapy Help Prevent Soccer Injuries?
With soccer comes the risk of a huge number of different injuries but with physiotherapy, some of them can be prevented before they arise. Your physiotherapist can work with you to create a personalised training programme with stretches, therapy, and exercises to keep your body in top condition.
Of course, soccer physio won’t be able to prevent impact injuries, however, they can help heal them more quickly and will make all the difference when it comes to preventing injuries from overuse and strains.
Physiotherapy helps keep your muscles strong and flexible. Keeping your muscles strong helps prevent fatigue during matches and keep you going strong from start to finish. Muscle fatigue can then put more strain on your joints which makes injuries such as sprains, twists, and ligament damage a lot more likely. Soccer physio can also improve flexibility, decreasing the risk of pulled muscles and strains while running or reaching for the ball.
