Injury Prevention

Our physiotherapists at Manchester Physio are experienced in treating all levels of athletes from recreational to elite levels. Our physiotherapists can offer advice on fitness and training if you are planning to embark on a strenuous sporting activity (e.g. skiing or running). This can help to improve the body's condition and reduce the risk of injury. Please keep the following prevention tips in mind as they will help you reduce your injury risk:
  • Participate in a conditioning program especially for your abdominals and glutes to build muscle strength and stability
  • Do stretching exercises daily
  • Always wear properly fitting shoes
  • Nourish your muscles by eating a well-balanced diet
  • Warm up before any sports activity, including practice
  • Use or wear protective equipment appropriate for that sport
