Physiotherapy For a Sports Injury

Suffered a Sports Injury? We Offer Expert Treatments

  • The variability of sports injury is enormous, but we recognise the need to ‘get back to normal’ as fast as possible, whatever the problem.
  • Soft tissue injuries may need local treatment, support and muscle strengthening around the area to prevent disuse problems as the area heals.
  • You will require help with return to sport as your symptoms settle, gradually reintroducing provocative movements and ensuring you have adequate balance and control before participating fully.
  • You will be encouraged, as much as possible, to continue with exercising the unaffected body parts, and strategies will be explored to allow you to do this.

Here are some terms commonly used to describe a sports injury:

  • Ligament injury. Ligaments are strong fibrous bands connecting bone to bone and supporting the joint capsule. When a joint is forced beyond the normal movement, a ligament injury may be suspected. A strained ligament needs support and a gentle return to activity, with local treatment directed at the injury. A ruptured ligament may heal spontaneously, or may require surgery (for example the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL). If our examination reveals a likely ligament rupture, we will refer you to the most appropriate consultant. If you require surgery, we can help you to have supportive muscles before the operation, and can then work with you to ensure you return to full function and return to sport afterwards.
  • Tendonitis/tendinopathy. These are two separate terms. Tendons connect muscle to bone. Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon. There may be swelling around the tendon, pain and difficulty moving, a grating sensation and possibly an increase in temperature in the area. Tendinopathy is a degenerative condition of the tendon (not necessarily related to ageing) and has several stages. Its important that this condition is properly assessed so that the right treatment and management plan is offered. Please book an appointment so we can assess, treat and advise.
  • Muscle strain/tear. These are two separate conditions and their management may differ significantly, depending on the severity. Without any doubt, physiotherapy is essential to get the muscle working properly again as it recovers. Please ring us.
  • Cartilage injury/surgery. Cartilage (the tissue that lines the joints) can become damaged, particularly with certain high impact sports. Surgery may be offered to help maintain cartilage function for longer. We are here to help with your rehabilitation following surgery, or to optimise your function generally.
  • Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, riding, racquet sports, impact sports, martial arts, whether you’re competitive or not, we’ll help you to be a winner again!
