We have APA Sports Physiotherapists in our clinic to get it right the first time.
What is an APA Sports Physiotherapist?
As quoted from the Australian Physiotherapy Association website, “APA Titling recognises members with advanced expertise and experience in their relevant area of practice. APA Titled physiotherapists are highly qualified physiotherapists with expert knowledge and skills in their area of practice.
They undergo a rigorous selection process to ensure that they achieve and maintain exceptional standards of clinical experience and knowledge. The APA Title serves as a professional mark of distinction in the field of Sports Physiotherapy.”
The skill of assessing and treating a sports injury, from understanding the mechanism of the injury and other associated structures, rehabilitation, to foreseeing a potential injury and prescribing appropriate strengthening exercises to prevent it from happening. Sports physiotherapy is a complicated component of physiotherapy.
Ensure you see a Titled Sports Physiotherapist rather than a non-titled Physiotherapist who treats sports injuries. Physiotherapists cannot claim they are Sports Physiotherapists unless they have met these stringent criteria.
