what is sports therapy

Sports Therapy is a form of rehabilitative therapy that involves various accepted methods;

  • Sports massage

  • Manipulation

  • Mobilisation

  • Acupuncture

  • Electrotherapy

  • Taping & strapping

  • Rehabilitative exercises

  • Pitch side first aid and emergency care.


Sports Therapy is both a graduate and diploma-based qualification. It is a rapidly growing field of practice, which is learning from older therapies including Osteopathy and Physiotherapy.


Sports Therapy is focused on muscular skeletal injuries, whereas Physiotherapy has a wider scope of practice including for example Respiratory Physiotherapy.

At present Sports Therapy is unregulated in the UK, despite various Sports Therapy governing bodies applying to The Health Professions Council (HPC) for protected title, the government will not grant state regulation in the foreseeable future.
