Sports physiotherapy at Mediss Medical Clinic in Gdańsk


Sports physiotherapy is essential not only in the context of injury treatment, but also as part of preventive measures that aim to minimize the risk of injury by properly preparing and strengthening the body. Athletes using sports physiotherapy can count on individually tailored rehabilitation programs that take into account the specifics of their sports discipline and individual health needs and goals.

Scope of sports physiotherapy

  1. Diagnosis: The first step is to accurately diagnose the problem. The physiotherapist conducts a detailed interview and physical examination, which may include an assessment of posture, range of motion, muscle strength and joint function. Additionally, biomechanical analysis of an athlete’s movements is often used to identify areas of risk and improve technique.
  2. Therapy planning: Based on the results of the diagnosis, the physiotherapist develops an individual treatment plan, taking into account the specific needs of the athlete, the type and severity of the injury, and the therapeutic goals. This plan can include both short- and long-term interventions, tailored to the athlete’s training schedule and competition.
  3. Manual therapy: This is one of the key methods used in sports physiotherapy. Manual therapy includes techniques such as joint mobilization, manipulation, massage and trigger point therapy. The purpose of these techniques is to improve joint mobility, reduce muscle tension, reduce pain and accelerate tissue regeneration.
  4. Therapeutic exercises: Exercise is the foundation of sports physiotherapy. These can be strengthening, stretching, stabilizing and improving coordination and balance exercises. Regular exercise helps athletes regain strength, flexibility and functionality and improve performance and technique.
  5. Specialized techniques: Depending on the athlete’s needs, the physiotherapist may use advanced techniques such as kinesiotaping, dry needling, ultrasound, electrotherapy, or cryotherapy. These methods support the healing process, reduce inflammation and accelerate tissue regeneration.

Advantages of sports physiotherapy

  • Pain reduction: Effective pain reduction through manual therapy and properly selected exercises.
  • Improved mobility: Increased range of motion in the joints and muscle flexibility.
  • Muscle strengthening: Building muscle strength, which translates into better joint stabilization and improved performance.
  • Preventing recurrence of injuries: Educating athletes and learning correct movement patterns, which helps to avoid injuries.
  • Faster recovery: Accelerate recovery from injuries, allowing athletes to return to training and competition more quickly.

How to prepare for a visit to a sports physiotherapist?

  1. Medical records: Bring all relevant medical documents with you, including imaging findings, medical history, and a list of medications you were taking.
  2. Comfortable attire: Dress in comfortable clothes that do not restrict movement.
  3. List of ailments: Make a list of all ailments and situations in which you feel pain or discomfort.
  4. Questions for the physiotherapist: Write down questions about the treatment plan, the duration of the therapy and the expected results.
