This summer, let Move for Better Health’s physiotherapists enhance your summer sport experience!
Whether you’re chasing personal best, seeking the thrill of performing well at competition, or a casual exerciser and someone looking to become more active during the summer, physiotherapy can be incredibly valuable for anyone looking to be more active, regardless of your current fitness level or athletic status.
It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new exercise program, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.
Remember, the key is to start working with a physiotherapist well in advance of your sport’s season. This will allow you ample time to address any issues, address the issues with a tailored plan, and improve your performance safely.
Ideally, you should see a physiotherapist several weeks before your summer sports season begins. The exact timing can vary based on several factors, such as your current physical condition, any pre-existing injuries, and the specific requirements of your sport. However, a general guideline would be to start working with a physiotherapist at least 6-8 weeks before your sports season starts.
Physiotherapy can offer several advantages:
