Physiotherapy or Sports Therapy? Featured

Which treatment is right for me?

With so many services on offer it is sometimes difficult to choose the right one!

At Core Body Clinic we currently only employ clinical practitioners.  This means that the person you are seeing has undergone years of clinical training and has passed multiple competencies to gain registration with the Health and Care Professions Council or with the Society of Sports Therapists.  All our practitioners are educated to degree or master’s level. 

The difference between a Physiotherapist and Sports Therapist is in the training environments.   Sports Therapists work in musculoskeletal and sports environments where as physiotherapists can also be found in hospitals treating very sick people.  At Core Body clinic our Sports Therapists and Physiotherapists are trained to assess and diagnose Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction (back pain, neck pain, tendon pain, muscle injury, post operation rehabilitation).  Therefore, there are huge similarities between the two professions so when consulting a Sports Therapist or a Physiotherapist you can be confident in the credentials of the professionals training that they will have the competency to assess and treat your problem.

If you are insured then you will have to see a Physiotherapist for the private medical insurance to cover the cost.  They will not cover Sports Therapy.  If you are self paying then please also consider our sports therapy faculty if a physiotherapist is not available on the day or time you prefer.

If you require a Sports Massage you can be comfortable that you will only see a physiotherapist or a sports therapist.
