The sports physiotherapist plays an important role in restoring or preventing sports injuries, and giving information and advice to sports enthusiasts. He or she guides and advises recreants, as well as experienced athletes. You will receive advice on the correct training structure and exercises using a combination of technique, strength, agility, speed, responsiveness and endurance. This not only benefits sports performance but also helps to prevent injuries.
