"What is sports therapy?" "Are you a physio?" "So you just do massage?" "What's the difference between sports therapy & physiotherapy?"
A sports therapist is a health professional who must be apart of a professional body to work - In my case........
Sports therapist have the ability, knowledge and skills to assess and treat sporting injuries and other medical conditions. As well as, provide advice on injury prevention and rehabilitation, using a range of techniques and modalities.
'The difference' - Sports therapist have sporting based backgrounds and have more specific knowledge of musculoskeletal and sporting injuries. And sports therapists usually work privately.
Whereas a physiotherapist, have medicine based backgrounds and have a broader knowledge of diseases, neurological and respiratory issues. And usually, work for the NHS or privately
