Sports Therapy – Located at 132 Collingwood St. Nelson

Founded in 2002 Sports Therapy in Nelson, located at 132 Collingwood Street, help people that suffer from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system.
Sports Therapy help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions. The clinic follows a strong hand–on approach to treatment with a focus on manual and manipulative physiotherapy. Although they do have a strong sports following, our case load represents a good mix of clientele of the orthopaedic variety.

Whether you’re an athlete or non-athlete, there are simple things you can be doing to prevent injury or worsening and Sports Therapy in Nelson is there to help you. Sports Therapy has become widely used in the corporate world, as a way for companies to assess and treat many work related problems such as back pain and what is commonly known as repetitive strain injury. Over the years Sports Therapy has progressed from just treating injured athletes, to dealing with many common muscular complaints such as back pain, mobility problems, postural problems and work related conditions.

Candace Donovan – Practice Manager explain:

“We use functional, high–end rehabilitation techniques to treat musculoskeletal conditions from annoying aches and pains to acute injuries. We work with patients in our gym and or one of our 9 private treatment rooms to develop individually tailored, activity–specific treatments. Priding ourselves on education as we go, we focus on teaching our clients why their injuries occur, what factors may have contributed to the incident and what we need to work together on to reduce their pain and dysfunction”.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is the specialist field of physiotherapy that assesses, diagnoses and treats disorders of the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves of the human body. The team of Physiotherapists are all specialists in the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.  At Sports Therapy they utilise this experience in order to achieve the best outcome for you when treating your injury or condition.

“We don’t just treat athletes – but our team have a wealth of experience in dealing with professional and elite athletes.  This means we can bring this expertise to all of our customers, whether they are involved in sport or not”.

Sports Therapy have a wide variety of skills (acupuncture, Kinesio strapping, manipulative treatments, massage therapy/soft tissue mobilizations, neural mobilizations etc), which they share regularly whether through co–consultations, in–services, or clinical workshops.

“We are proud supporters of several local events and sports teams, such as the Summer Challenge, a women’s adventure race, that takes place in Nelson 13th of March.
Prior to the event we will have strapping available from the clinic. At the finish line, we will have a tent where we will do post event massage. Our philosophy is to work with and support our local community”.

Young or old, able-bodied or with disability, those with injuries associated with work or hobbies – all are welcomed at Sports Therapy and will be treated using the same principles and respect.
