An athlete’s life requires rigorous training on a daily basis, which often takes a toll on their body. In order to reach peak performance, professional athletes train at high intensity and intervals and it varies based on the sport and the requirement. Some professional athletes end up training in 3 to 4 sessions each day, each lasting for at least 1.5 hours. Due to this, they are more prone to injuries and strain in their muscles and joints, which could have a negative impact on their performance. Physiotherapy is a constant companion at times like this, helping athletes improve their mobility and prevent injuries.

Sports physiotherapy is an essential part of an athlete’s everyday rigour. It focuses on examining, diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries and problems. Apart from this, physiotherapy has a slew of advatages athletes could benefit from. Physiotherapy helps them move correctly since they are taught good postures and techniques by their physiotherapists as part of the session.

By providing the correct exercise routines with a focus on the required strain that is to be put on every muscle, physiotherapists also help prevent injuries. Since physiotherapy focuses on strengthening a certain group of muscles at a time, it helps enhance the overall strength of an athlete.

After a long day of rigorous training, an athlete’s muscles crave for relaxation. Exercises like stretching and cooling, done under the guidance of a physiotherapist, can help the muscles relax, helping them prep for the next session.

At The Sports School, we understand the need for this discipline and believe it is important for student-athletes to know about their body, mental health, their diet, and how they can improve their performance on the field.

That is why we have have an integrated Sports Science Center dedicated to holistically improving the skill set of each student, thus helping them realize their optimum. We have a slew of in-house verticals such as sports psychology, physiotherapy, sports nutrition and strength & conditioning. Each of these verticals work in association with each other to ensure that every student-athlete under the Center’s purview is well-rounded in terms of rehabilitation and performance.

Secrets of sports science – maximizing performance

Sport science integrates the study of science with athletic endeavors. The goal of sport science is to reduce injury risk while maximizing performance and endurance in the lead-up to events and competitions.

For everyone from athletes to the elderly and everyone in between, it is used to assist identify strengths and weaknesses so that a training Programme can be tailored specifically for each person.

Sports scientists have derived data to ensure that athletes are using the most recent preparatory methods, testing, and training regimens.

Our highly qualified sport scientists can provide players evidence-based therapies to boost performance.

  • Sport specific testing
  • Movement screenings
  • Injury prevention and corrective exercise prescription
  • Program design and monitoring

“Sport Science is a multi-disciplinary field concerned with the understanding and enhancement of human performance. It includes the knowledge, methods and applications of sub-disciplines of human movement studies (i.e., exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control and motor development, exercise and sport psychology), as well as how they interact.

Sports scientists are trained experts who assist sports people to achieve the best possible sporting performance. They evaluate, research, assess and advise on coaching, training, competition and recovery practices in all areas and levels of sport.

A sports scientist will work with teams and individual athletes to provide scientific support in preparation for competition. This can involve information, technical and practical support on training, injury prevention, technique analysis, nutrition and optimization of performance, and assistance with psychological issues (such as motivation, stress and arousal, and coping strategies). For example, a sport scientist might design a training Programme to increase a cyclist’s speed or improve a swimmer’s power off the swimming blocks.”

Sports science is the study of key sciences


The psychological demands of physical activity can determine if an individual is able to achieve success and optimal performance. Taking psychological factors into account can affect performance.


Physiology takes into account the way that the human body functions when exposed to exercise and physical training.


Biometrics is the science of measuring and studying biological data which includes hormone and glucose levels. People who keep an eye on this data are able to improve their health and energy.

Motor Control/Learning

Motor control/ learning is the way that a human is able to organize their motor skills. By gaining motor control people are able to move accurately and swiftly while minimizing energy use and avoiding injury.

Sports Science Helping to Prevent Injuries


Your muscles need to be stretched before and after a workout to help prevent injuries. To be effective stretching needs to be done correctly. Ineffective stretching can actually cause damage and not be adequate for your workout.

Warming Up and Cooling Down

Warming up prepares your body for exercise and physical training. A warm-up loosens your joints and muscles while slowly increasing your heart rate. Cooling down is just as important. It brings your heart rate down slowly.

Build Your Workout Gradually

Prevent injuries by starting slowly and gradually build duration and intensity. Having VO2 Max and threshold testing performed will help you determine and implement your training levels.

Proper Nutrition

Nutrition is necessary for a successful workout. Our consultants can talk to you about the proper nutrition for your workout, your goals and your physiology.

Sufficient Recovery

Recovery is crucial in preventing injury. Insufficient recovery can lead to weakened performance and injury. Talk to one of our exercise physiologists about recovery for your individual needs.

Psychological Recovery

Psychological recovery techniques such as massage, spas and hot showers can help your mental health. Mental health plays a big role in recovery and it’s important to ensure you’re feeling great about your workouts, not dreading them as this can lead to fatigue and injury.

Pay Attention to Your Body

The “no pain, no gain” theory is incorrect. Always listen to your body. If you are feeling pain you could be causing avoidable damage. When beginning a new workout routine, it is normal to feel mild discomfort, so it is important to know what is normal pain and what is not.
