Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy is an area of healthcare which specifically deals with the prevention, the treatment and the rehabilitation of injuries to professional and amateur athletes, people who keep fit for fun and accident victims, regardless of age, sport or ability.

This is achieved via GTD Sports Therapy treatment plans which include various manual therapy techniques, electrotherapy, and progressive exercise rehabilitation.
