Whether you are a weekend warrior or a competitive athlete, sporting injuries are a common occurrence.
All too often people wait until their injury is not responding with their own treatment regimes and then seek advice weeks or even months following their injury.
It is vital to achieve the appropriate management immediately following your injury in order to promote healing, avoid further damage and promote a safe and quick return to sport.
All of our staff are passionate about sports on both a personal and professional level and thoroughly enjoy treating sports injuries.
In the acute phase we assess whether your injury requires any aids such as bracing, boots or tape to help protect a joint and promote healing. In most circumstances within the first week we will commence appropriate, evidence-based manual therapy techniques to help you recover as quickly as possible. We will also advise whether imaging or referral to a specialist is required and can liaise with the medical team as required.
Our Aim Is To:
- Prevent further tissue damage
- Promote healing
- Restore reduced range of motion, strength and balance associated with the injury
- Assess for biomechanical faults that may have led to the initial injury and correct in order to prevent a recurrence
- Assist in a safe and prompt return to sport
