Our Injury Service
We share our patients passion to stay active, we know how frustrating missing out on your sport, work or activities can be. We aim to return people to activities as soon as is safe to and will guide you through the whole process.
Whether its a sports injury, work related injury or an injury interfering with daily life a prompt diagnosis is vital for successful management. Treatment and rehabilitation can speed up recovery time by reducing pain, swelling and joint stiffness.
We are always keen to share our knowledge gained from years of experience in sport and exercise (especially running and athletics).
Our Injury Consultations include;-
We assess, treat and clinically reason what is causing the problem rather than just treat the symptoms. Many injuries are linked to muscle weakness or poor movement control, we can help you address these to keep you fit and pain free. We may use our manual skills to work on releasing any tension in the muscles and joints relevant to causing your problem.
This is the really important one. We help you to regain stability and control to help you move better and prevent injury. We tailor each program to the individual and only use evidence based approaches, we help you to take charge of your injury by helping you understand the process.
(appointment time up to 75 minutes)
We are always available to offer continual support via phone/skype/email to guide you through your recovery. If more treatments are required we will advise you but never make them compulsary. Our aim is to give you the tools to be able to self manage and prevent future recurrence.
You are just as resposible for your recovery as we are. Its a team effort. If we feel your injury is out of our scope of profession and experience we will advise referral to the required specialist.
