Sports Injuries

With the increased awareness of the benefits of regular exercise and improved physical fitness on our health and well being, we are seeing a large number of people experiencing musculoskeletal injuries.

Our experienced and skilled physiotherapists have attracted a broad client profile ranging from England U21 hockey team, the Amateur Rowing Association, professional and elite athletes to the club athlete and fun runner. Whatever your sport or ability, we tailor your rehabilitation to suit. Most of our physiotherapists are athletes themselves, so they have an appreciation of a rapid but complete return to sport.

The treatment of soft tissue injuries whether recent or long standing is based on 3 simple principles:

  1. an understanding of your injury
  2. your body’s repair process
  3. knowledge of the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.

Soft tissue injuries fall into 2 Categories:

(i)                Traumatic – occurs instantly and as a result of a specific incident e.g. a fall on the shoulder or a calf strain from pushing off for a sprint

(ii)             Overuse – develops over a period of hours days or weeks as a result of unaccustomed, excessive or repetitive activities e.g. running in footwear with poor foot support

Common Sports Injuries:

Upper Limb:

  • Shoulder rotator cuff dysfunction
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Capsulitis shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Tennis/Golfers elbow
  • Acromio-clavicular strain
  • Recurrent shoulder dislocation

Lower Limb:

  • Ilio tibial band syndrome
  • Hip Impingement
  • Groin Strain
  • Quads strain
  • Hamstring strain
  • Medial/Lateral ligament strains of the knee
  • Meniscal (cartilage) damage
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Patello femoral pain
  • Shin Splint
  • Ankle sprain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Calf strain
  • March Foot
  • Biomechanical foot pain i.e. high arches/overpronation


  • Spinal problems
  • Abdominal strains

There is also an increase in patients presenting with chronic injuries arising from incomplete rehabilitation of a previous problem. Incomplete rehabilitation can lead to muscle weakness, loss of balance and stability which can cause early joint damage. Often this could have been prevented by early and complete and full rehabilitation.
