Introduction

Pro-Am Sports Injury Clinic promotes and improves total body health by quickly addressing the cause of your injury with a holistical approach, individual to each patients goals. 

Who we treat? Everyone, regardless of whether you are involved in sport or not. Our role is to assess, treat and rehabilitate your aches and pains and get you back to the activities you need and love to do. Getting you back moving is the key to getting you better.

If you are involved in sport then we can take your rehabilitation that step further and get you back into your sport, aswell as design a preventative strategy.

Not sure what a Sports Therapist is? Well our training is very similar to a physiotherapist apart from we specialise in musculoskeletal (muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints) from the start, for 3 years at university. This means we spend time learning hands on muscle testing, soft tissue treatments and functional movement assessment and exercise selection.

Whether your aim is to reduce pain, increase range of motion and mobility (to enable pain free daily living) or perhaps improve at your chosen sport, we can help.

Massage is not a luxury its an investment in you. Your physical and mental health.Many of us put alot of energy into our exercise, work and daily life (regardless of what our individual goals may be) but we can forget about looking after the body that helps you achieve it until pain stops us in our tracks. Massage may feel like a splurge but it’s not to put off until you have a race or dealing with a nagging issue.Regular massage can help free stiff muscles making it feel easier to move more efficiently. If you feel good, you perform better. If you book in for 40 minutes every 6 weeks you can tackle problems quickly instead of pushing through pain and compounding it. Don’t just come when you are hurting, it can end up costing more and not just in money but in your time and possibly confidence and motivation to start back again.

A Regular “tune-up” can help you stay feeling better

If you have a chronic or recurrent problem, such as back pain, neck pain, headaches or arthritis a regular “tune-up” may help you enjoy life more.

Most of these problems mentioned respond very well to a course of therapy. In conjunction here at Pro-Am we usually give you self treatment exercises to help you improve your problem and maintain this improvement.

Some problems unfortunately can be recurring and can make life feel miserable. If this is the case then a regular maintenance treatment can make this more manageable. Treatment will help to keep you mobile, release tension and update self treatments as and when required so they give you the maximum benefit. By having a fortnightly or monthly “top-up” it can be more cost effective than having to have extensive treatment for acute episodes of pain.

“Tune ups” are also beneficial for those who have jobs that involve prolonged postures, repetitive movements, heavy lifting or perhaps your hobby or sport is demanding on the body. With a regular maintenance treatment you can keep your muscles and joints in good balance and, pick up on any niggles before they develop into a nasty injury. Our goal at Pro-Am is to keep you active in the activities you enjoy.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

When you come to your appointment at Pro-Am the therapists first part of the assessment is asking as much information about your injury as possible.  The answers you give are important to guide the rest of the assessment. Sometimes a diagnosis can be given just from the subjective history you give and then we use a physical assessment to back up the diagnosis.

Here are some simple question our therapist will ask you when you are suffering from pain around the front of the knee.

Q1 Do you have pain sitting with your knees flexed?

Q2 Do you have pain standing?

Q3 Do you have pain going up or down the stairs, or both?

Q4 Have pain or swelling been key features?

Q5 What is your view on crepitus? (pops, clunks and grinding)

Answers to these questions will really help guide the therapists assessment and get to the cause of your injury.

Quick Updates

I don’t know about you but I have been glued the tv watching the Winter Olympics, its just what I needed to keep me motivated for my own training when the weather is awful.

Last week our Hull York Medical students finished their sports massage module, and as they finished Scarborough Sixth Form students started their sports massage course. This is a new venture for me, the students are studying BTEC Sports Science and the course I’m running for them is to introduce sports massage. I will also be running a shorter course later this month for A level students who are interested in going into Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy, Sports Rehab.

Hopefully we will have another group of Hull York medical students in April so keep an eye out for free massages around that time, as they will need practice models.

New Year, New Beginnings

Happy New Year!

January is looking very busy for Pro-Am, we have our next lot of Hull York Medical Students for our Sports Massage Module. We will be needing practice models in the first week of February, I will post nearer the time to take bookings.

Jenna will also be starting a new teaching post with Scarborough Sixth Form Students. Its an opportunity for any student interested in going into Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy, Sports Science etc. to get a taster of sports massage.
