What is Sports Therapy?
It is a branch of physical therapy/medicine which focuses on the injuries that are associated with sports especially athletics. Some of the parts of the body that are vulnerable to sport injuries are legs, hands, knees, fingers, and their joints.
Common sports injuries can be handled easily by general practitioners but severe or chronic injuries require trained physical therapists. At Fusion Physical Therapy, we are well stocked with such specialists to ensure your full physical potential is restored. So what causes sports injuries?
