Sports Injuries

we treat sports injuriesAnyone and everyone can have a sports injury and sometimes if they are not dealt with they can turn into longer lasting problems. It is therefor vital to get a correct diagnosis of your injury so that you can adjust your sporting activity to avoid long term damage. To get a correct diagnosis you need to see a qualified practitioner (in eg Osteopathy or Physiotherapy)

I have been diagnosing and treating sports injuries for 15 years. At your initial consultation I will diagnose your injury on a tissue basis (eg ligament or tendon), treat the injury and offer you advice on how to avoid further injury and how to continue training. I will also advise you on how many sessions you will need and how often you will need to come in.

After we have resolved the injury problem we will also look at ways to avoid the injury re-occurring.

For both the occasional and elite athlete, it is equally important to treat any injuries that arise as soon as possible. This will ensure that you avoid secondary issues arising due to bio-mechanical compensations (eg shifting your weight to the non-painful side).
