It only naturally follows that there are as many physiotherapy clinics in Dubai to meet the ever-rising demand of treatment for pain management and management of sports-related injuries. However, in order to select the best sports physiotherapy clinic in Dubai, one must ensure a combination of factors are addressed.
Firstly, one has to understand that sports physiotherapy is a specialized discipline of physiotherapy that deals with injuries and pain common to athletes and players of varied sporting genres. One question that arises here is why do players and athletes suffer from frequent sports-related injuries and pain. The answer is simple: It’s not easy to sustain high-intensity performances and endure high levels of training without wear and tear on the body. Due to their intensive training, there is a lot of pressure on their bones, muscles and tissues. Plus, even a slightly wrong movement, turn or posture can cause grievous pain. Then are there umpteen possibilities of sports-related accidents.
A reliable sports physiotherapy should have well-trained sports physios who are equipped with knowledge of all kinds of sports and also all levels of pain–acute, mild as well as chronic. A modern sports physiotherapy clinic should also be able to deliver pain management therapies to both women and men athletes.
Sports injuries are common and occur extensively among players. Beginners as well as pros suffer from injuries from time to time, and sometimes it take months to heal before one can get back to playing.

We stress on our physiotherapists to be both guides and friend-cum-counselors as they should be able to communicate well with their patients in order to gauge their psychological state. They should be able to assess each patient’s psyche, self-esteem, and personal targets well such as to offer them tailor-made solutions and also make patients slowly accept the difficulty of a particular situation if the need be. Some patients initially refuse to follow-up on sessions or invest the requisite amount of time in therapies. A professional physiotherapist should be able to help patients overcome their resistance.
