Sports injuries don’t just happen to professional athletes. They happen to recreational and competitive athletes of any age. If an injury is preventing you from playing the sport you love, Shyft can help get you back in the game.
As with any type of injury, your treatment begins with a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment, where we determine the cause of your symptoms and establish an individualized treatment plan.
Common questions about Sports Physiotherapy
Do I need a referral to see a physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are primary access health care providers. We do not require a referral, but your insurance company might. If you’re not sure, it’s always best to check with your benefits plan.
What type of treatment will I do?
Treatment options will vary. These will depend on the type of injury, how recent it is and what sport you are returning to. Your physiotherapist will discuss any options or recommendations with you throughout the course of treatment.
