What is a Sports Therapist?
A Sports Therapist is a distinct occupational title that applies to a clearly defined scope of practice. Carys graduated with a first class honours degree in Sports Therapy in 2021. She is a member of the Society of Sports Therapists – an allied health professional who has the knowledge, skill and ability to:
- utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance, preparation and injury prevention programmes
- provide the immediate care of injuries and basic life support in a recreational, training, occupational and competitive environment
- assess, treat, rehabilitate and, if necessary, refer on for specialist advice and intervention
- plan and implement appropriate rehabilitation and return to training / work programmes
Sports therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.
It utilises the principles of sport and exercise science incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.
