A Sports Physiotherapist is a highly sought-after role, directly overseeing the treatment of musculoskeletal sports injuries and rehabilitation of elite athletes.

Physiotherapy presents an opportunity to stay in the game or another sporting environment. Becoming a physiotherapist can be a rewarding line of work, whether this is working with elite performers helping them get back to the top of their game or working with an individual to help them get back to basic fitness and wellbeing, physiotherapy can be a very satisfying job.

Players experience injury and rehabilitation throughout their career. Physiotherapists help treat people with injuries or physical difficulties. Whether it’s to help rehabilitate someone after a sports injury, to improve the mobility of an elderly patient, or to assist someone suffering from an illness on the road to recovery, the work they do is absolutely invaluable in ensuring people are as happy and pain free as possible.
