Sports Rehabilitation

Sports injuries are very common and often occur due to trauma or overuse of tissues such as muscles, ligaments and bones. Traumatic injuries often occur in sports such as rugby and soccer due to a fall, contact or twisting motion. Overuse injuries occur gradually over time, due to overloading or repetitive use of tissues. Common sporting injuries include:

  • Shoulder Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Hamstring Strain
  • Ankle Sprain
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Knee Ligament Injuries
  • Groin Strain
  • Neck or Back Pain
  • Shin Splints

If you have a sporting injury it is important to get assessed by a physiotherapist as soon as possible. Don’t let issues become chronic – they become harder to treat and take longer to recover. Early recognition and physiotherapy treatment will help you get back to sport as soon as possible.

Following a thorough assessment to diagnose your injury, your physiotherapist will guide you through a personalised rehabilitation programme. This will include exercises to regain muscle strength and joint mobility, and other treatment techniques such as manual therapy, cryotherapy and electrotherapy to manage inflammation, pain and swelling. Your treatment may also include taping or bracing to assist with gradual return to activity. We are also happy to work alongside your coach or manager to incorporate your rehabilitation programme into your training, working together to get you back to full function.
