Sports Therapy Treatments 

Sports Therapy can help you perform at your best, no matter how fit or active you are. It can benefit most people whether the injury has been caused by sporting or non-sporting activities, and is aimed at the musculoskeletal system including muscles and ligaments.

It can help with muscle tension and stiffness; muscle strains and ligament sprains; neck and shoulder tension; headaches, back and joint pain; plus many other conditions.

Sports Therapy is a hands-on approach that encompasses a range of treatments including: 

  • Injury assessment & treatment
  • Sports Massage
  • Exercise Therapy & Rehabilitation
  • Ultrasound & Electrotherapy
  • Kinesio Taping
  • Advice on stretching, strengthening, posture and injury prevention

Depending on your injury, a personalised treatment and rehabilitation programme will be devised so that you can return to full fitness as quickly as possible.

Often clients find that that regular maintenance treatments help with injury prevention, meaning that they can train more consistently and effectively, resulting in improved performances.

Injury Assessment & Treatment

Whether you have an injury caused by day to day overuse or by a specific sporting activity, we will carry out a full consultation and assessment of the problem.

This will enable us to work together to decide on the best possible treatment plan to aid your recovery.

The treatment may involve some or all of the following:

  • Sports/deep tissue massage, including soft tissue & myofascial release
  • Ultrasound/Electrotherapy
  • Kinesio Taping
  • Stretching & strengthening advice
Sports Massage

Sports massage is a deeper form of massage aimed at releasing muscle tension, relieving pain, improving flexibility and also preventing injury. 

Injuries can result from the extra demands we put on our bodies through overuse, tiredness, poor technique or lack of fitness. Sports Massage works deeply on the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue, helping to restore their function and flexibility by improving blood circulation and lymphatic flow.

It can also help to correct muscle imbalances, relieve stress and headaches, and aid in the treatment of chronic problems.

It also has great benefits in preventing injury. In fact, many people use Sports Massage as a preventative and maintenance treatment to help keep their niggles at bay.

Exercise Therapy & Rehabilitation

Musculoskeletal injuries require active rehabilitation which will enable you to return to your activity/sport with full function in the shortest possible time. If proper rehabilitation is not carried out you may find that you are:

  • Prone to re-injury of the same area
  • Unable to return to your previous fitness level or performance standard
  • Predisposed to injuring another part of the body

Once your injury has been treated and we understand what caused it, we can devise a personalised rehabilitation plan of targeted and progressive exercises to help you return to fitness more quickly - and hopefully prevent re-injury.

Ultrasound & Electrotherapy

Ultrasound therapy uses high frequency sound waves to treat many soft tissue injuries. It can help with the body’s own natural healing processes and encourages healing in the soft tissues. The micro vibrations of the sound waves help decrease swelling, inflammation, pain and muscle spasm resulting in an increased healing rate of injuries.

Interferential therapy is a form of Electrotherapy that uses low level electrical current to stimulate nerve activity. This is aimed at the musculoskeletal system to give pain relief and increased blood flow to the area - resulting in reduced swelling and inflammation, and restoration of function. 

It can also be used for muscle stimulation and for deep joint pain, such as for the knee or shoulder.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to work with the body’s natural healing process whilst providing support and stability to muscles and joints. This taping does not restrict movement or the body’s range of motion, so you can still exercise with it in place. In fact, you may have seen many elite athletes competing with this bright taping on show!

It can be applied it many ways depending on the injury. It can be used to relax tight muscles, activate weak muscles, reduce swelling and encourage lymphatic drainage.

It works by gently lifting the top layer of skin at a microscopic level, which results in the tissue structures beneath being stimulated
