Physiotherapy for athletes

I am an active athlete and always have big goals for my training and competitions. I don’t want to leave anything to chance!

Whether after an acute injury, an operation or painful movements, we will leave nothing to chance and together exceed your self-imposed goals.

Let’s get started right away!

Physiotherapy is a great way to actively address pain and restricted movement.

Sports physiotherapy at HNL - what to expect?

Define goals

First of all, we – athlete and physiotherapists – will define a common goal in treatment and plan the way there. This depends on the athletic background and the specific injury clinic. Elite athletes will be able to subordinate much to their comeback, while less ambitious athletes will strive for maximum success with the least possible effort.

Sports Physiotherapy

During the time spent in the physio clinic in the Westend, we will discuss and practice exercises for your rehab plan. In addition, the physiotherapist will use various methods such as manual therapy, fascia techniques or massages to assist the athlete in his regeneration and rehabilitation in the best possible way. If necessary, it is possible to provide the body further support with strapping and taping to enable a safe training and prevent a reinjury.

Training and exercise outside the physio clinic

In sports injuries, it is important to complete the right exercises regardless of the sports physiotherapist and the treatment. In order for the athlete to gain the best possible safety, the individual exercises can be viewed and imitated online at rehathlon. A complete training plan for rehabilitation, injury prevention or for more health can be written, too.


Which sports are right for HNL Physiotherapy?

Basically every one. Should it become too specific, HNL has a competence network for sports medicine in the Frankfurt area and will find the right sports physiotherapist and health professional for the athlete.

As an athlete, I have always been active and have even completed triathlon as an ambitious competitive athlete. However, the active experience continues: rugby, football, swimming, athletics, crossfit and dancing (ballroom dance).
