Sports physiotherapy is concerned with the early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries. The treatment goal is to rehabilitate the injury as quickly as possible and ensure an early return to functional activity or sport. Sports physiotherapy also has a role in the prevention of injury.

Physiotherapists who work in sports physiotherapy prescribe specific exercise programs tailored to the needs of individuals with levels of sports participation ranging from that of the lay person or recreational sports person to the elite athlete.

Physiotherapists also advise on appropriate sporting and everyday equipment, providing protection, supports, splints and appliances for optimal performance and safety. The Bristol Orthopaedic Clinic carries an extensive range of splints, appliances and orthotics, from wrist, back and knee supports to knee or ankle splints and braces. Also available are off-the-shelf orthotics and shoe insoles for sport and every day wear.
