Sport injuries

Our physiotherapists have experience in assessing, diagnosing and treating sports injuries suffered by athletes confirming in all levels of sport. These injuries include;

  • Ankle sprains
  • Groin strains
  • Hamstring strains
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Patella-femoral pain + tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow

Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for athletes returning to sport safely. Management may include; 

  • Immobilisation
  • Bracing
  • Taping
  • Cryotherapy (Game Ready and Cryocuffs)
  • Manual therapy
  • Dry needling
  • Exercise prescription
  • Referral to appropriate specialists or imaging

The largest risk factor associated with many sporting injures is previous injury. Our long-term goal is to prevent the recurrence of the current issue but also to avoid secondary injuries on return to sport.
