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.

You can find out more by scrolling through our website or if you want to find out more get in touch.

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.

Exercise and Massage

Professional athletes training programmes have cycles of increasing volume and intensity and then decreasing back down to aid repair and recovery. Our bodies can not be pushed continually, this is when it starts to break, combine this with massage to flush the system and they feel fresh for there next block of training. Massage is part of every professional athletes training program but we also work just as hard in our jobs/exercise/hobbies and life so why don’t more people take advantage of what massage has to offer. You get your hair cut which helps keep it in good condition, why not a massage for your muscles which help you get around?

We are all told that exercise is important for the body to stay mobile and strong and it is but sometimes our daily stresses make us feel less inclined to exercise as we feel tired and achy. During these times exercise can actually add to that stress and tip our nervous system into survival mode which can then affect our sleep, hormones and our systems can become sluggish which can lead to an increase in toxins in the body. How do you remedy this, one, you can decrease the volume and intensity of your exercise (yin yoga or yoga with twists for detox) or you can have a massage.

The effects of massage have that feel good factor exercise gives you without you having g to get a sweat on or put any effort in. I am not saying to ditch exercise but once a month having a massage to help re-charge the bodies systems, can stop the build up of toxins by helping our circulation and lymphatic system.

Just like a machine our response times can slow, things may miscommunicate and get cluttered. What do we do with a printer not wanting to print, we power down and reset it. Massage can do this for the body.

However just like exercise those first few sessions may make you feel a little heavy and sluggish as your systems needs time to adjust. Massage is more beneficial if you have one regularly. Maintainance is far easier if kept on top of than it is to ignore and then only attend to it when damaged.

Many of my clients say that there first few sessions were a little uncomfortable but then they soon quickly became really relaxing and really notice the difference when they have to delay an appointment (we have seen alot of this due to covid).

So if you find your self out of balance, not sleeping well finding exercise harder than usual maybe its time for a re-set.

A monthly massage that can re-charge your body is the best approach. Here at Pro-Am we have some great health scheme offers to help keep you committed to your health and well being. Get signed up before 20th December for a fresh start in 2022 and before our prices go up.

Special Offers for November/December. Why not give someone the gift of health.

New loyalty scheme for our massage service

From 12th April our massage treatments are back on the table.

The past 12 months has been very frustrating for me not been able to open for hands on treatments. I am so looking forward to getting back into the clinic full time.

Massage returns to the table

Patients right now are noticing how shattered and tense they’ve been feeling and how much this past twelve months has taken its toll.

This latest lockdown, we have seen persistent niggling injuries that just won’t clear without hands on treatment and also a lot of people who feel generally stiff and out of condition. Everyone has tried hard to stay fit and stretch at home but it doesn’t always get to the heart of the problem.

As a trial run we are launching a loyalty scheme for our sports and relaxation massage treatments which will last 3 mths.

Here is how it will work;

From 12th April – 11th July you will be given a gift card to record your 1st visit.

On your 2nd visit this card will turn into a £10 gift card to go towards your 3rd visit which must be used before 11th July.

We don’t want you to be getting back into the activities you love all stiff and sore. Book in for some massage treatments to get you moving better and iron out the physical and mental effects that stress has had on the body, so you can enjoy, your activities again, with ease.

Competition Time

To celebrate our 15 years in business we would have loved to have had a party to invite all current and past customers. However Covid has got in the way and we want everyone to be safe, so we thought we would give some prizes away.

To enter all you have to do is book in for any treatment between the 12th April and 11th May. If you would like to treat someone to one of our gift cards then you and your receiver will also be entered.

What’s the prize?

One of these lovely lavendar scented wheat bags, measuring 46cm by 14cm frm the Wheatbag Company. These are great to ease sore achy muscles by popping it in the microwave to heat up or pop in the freezer to ease any inflammation.

To book in just call 01723 363332 or fill in one of our contact forms.

Anxiety, stress and depression. How can massage help?

We can all suffer from anxiety, stress and or depression from time to time. Stress can be good for you but repeatedly pressing the stress response button can start to negatively effect the body. Finding the cause of your anxiety, stress and or depression is very important. Everybody has different triggers and will require different approaches to manage the effects these conditions have on the body. Our advice is to always be open and willing to try different strategies whether it is meditation, yoga, bootcamp, cold water swimming, running, crafting or under guidance of your doctor cognitive behavioral therapy, counselling or medication. Sometimes we are our worst enemy in that we have an excuse for not trying things like I don’t have time, its just part of my job, I don’t want to let anybody down, its our willpower or lack of. This is not the article to go into this but if you want a really great read about willpower and why we make the choices we do and how to change your approach, Kelly Mcgonigal ‘how to master the new science of self control – maximum willpower’ is a great start.

Below is a table showing just some of the symptoms related to anxiety, stress and depression.

Anxiety StressDepression
Physical symptoms
Feeling irritableGrinding teeth, clenched jawLack of energy
Problems with sleepHeadachesUnexplained aches and pains
Feeling of dread, panic or impending doomIndigestion or acid reflux symptomsChanges in appetite
Racing thoughtsDizziness or general feeling of ‘being out of it’Moving or speaking more slowly than usual
Difficulty concentratingMuscle tension in neck, face or shoulders.Disturbed sleep

The above table is just a very simple example and you can have anxiety, stress and depression seperately but you can have all 3. Sypmtoms can be very similar for all 3 which is why it is always best to speak to a medical professional to work out your cause and triggers and how to manage it the best way for you.

Massage can be effective to treat some symptoms of mild, short term cases by helping with muscle tension, decreasing pain, helping sleep etc. It can also be very useful for severe chronic cases but must be part of a treatment strategy as it will not work on its own.

Massage helps to reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) and muscle tension by eliciting feelings of calm and deep relaxation. Massage increases localised blood flow which helps the travel of positive hormones like endorphins, serotonin and dopamine to areas of high stress and give a sense of well being. Massage can also reduce feelings of stiffness by increasing tissue elasticity by rising muscle temperature. Very similar effects to exercise.

When booking a massage to help with your stress and anxiety management notify the therapist of why you want the treatment. This way they can create the right environment for you to be able to relax. Asking the therapist to not talk during your treatment is absolutely fine. We are here to help.

Marathon Treatment Package

As well as our new 2018 Health Scheme packages we have designed a SPECIAL package for anyone training for a marathon.

The Package

Total Cost £176 can be paid whole or in 4 monthly payments £44 (saves £6 per treatment)

(The contract runs for 4 months from the date of first payment received. Once expired any outstanding treatments are lost. Any payments not received make the contract null and void any treatments completed will be charged at full price and an invoice issued to be paid immediately)

What is included?

7 x 40 minute treatments to use as you please within a 4 mth period.

Recommended usage 5 treatments (1 every two weeks) training up for the marathon, 1 pre race massage (2-4 days before race day) and 1 post race massage (4-6 days after race day). To be started 12 weeks out from your race day. Or to be started 6 weeks out from race day having 1 massage a week using your 7th as a post race treatment.

Having a sports massage program can not guarantee you stay injury free, high mileage is tough on the body but if one occurs you can use your treatments for the injury instead of sports massage, with any extra sessions required at 15% discount.

Why go for this package?

For most of us, running a marathon is a massive challenge and commitment. So the last thing you want is an injury that could force you to pull out before the big day.

Sports massage can help you through to the finish line. But many runners are unaware of the physical and psychological benefits of sports massage when preparing for a marathon – maybe considering it a luxury. Everybody is different and the effects of heavy mileage is different for each person, understanding how your body responds can help you recovery better and prevent injury. Sports massage can help by making you more in tune with how your body feels, your muscle may feel fine until some one works through them. Our bodies are pretty good at telling us when something is sore we just have to work out why. Along with the sports massage we can discuss how you are training and make changes if needed.
