The term “Sports Injury” covers a huge range of causes, locations and patient expectations, from a torn hamstring in the 100m final at the Olympic Games to back pain after playing football with the children in the park.
Sportsmen and sportswomen are more at risk undertaking sports they have not played before and which involve contact or high impact, such as rugby or squash. Having previous injuries can predispose a recurrence of the same injury or may cause stiffness or altered playing style that can lead to injury of another joint.
Recovery from a sports injury involves a combination of treatments that take into account the importance of body positioning and movement patterns to prevent ongoing problems. We tailor your rehabilitative exercises to meet the requirements of the sports you participate in and get you back playing as quickly as possible.
