Depending on the type and severity of an injury, successful rehabilitation and physiotherapy may take anywhere from a few hours of light sessions, to months or years of intensive training. Some competitive athletes meet with their therapists regularly over the course of their careers to assess the condition of lingering injuries and look for warning signs of new ones that may occur.
With the guidance and treatment provided by skilled therapists and physicians, many athletes are able to fully recover from injuries and return to their sports with ease. Others utilize their physiotherapist throughout the course of their career to maintain optimum performance and to deal with the ongoing consequences of the demands of their sport.
Timelines are flexible and built around the individual athlete and their specific goals.
