I know the answer might seem obvious I.e they want to specialise in sport but I'm wondering why do people opt to do sports rehabilitation courses rather than physiotherapy? In physiotherapy there are a lot more areas to work in and you can work in sport if you choose to.

The reason i went for sport rehab instead of physiotherapy is because the grades arent as high as physiotherapy so there was a little less pressure and i knew i wouldnt get the grades for physiotherapy. Also sport rehab is more specific for the injury based whereas physiotherapy can be from all different areas eg strokes, heart attacks injury etc. Hope this has helped a bit?

Ah ok, I see how it is more specific to sport and perhaps more in deprh with sports injuries than physio, Im not sure. Its just some people do sports rehab then convert to physio after and I always think they might as well have just worked towards getting on physio.
