Injury Assessment & Treatment

Sports Therapy is much more than treating injured athletes and ‘sport’ injuries; the essence of any good Sports Therapist is dealing with common complaints such as back pain, mobility problems, postural issues and work related aches and pains. In a time when doctors and physiotherapy services do not have the time to offer hands on physical therapy, DC Injury Clinic can offer a full rehabilitation service.

Whether you are suffering from specific injury, chronic aches and pains, or are post operation, I have extensive experience working with everyone from members of the general public to elite international athletes, with all manner of acute and chronic pains and injuries.

What you can expect from DC Injury Clinic;

Assessments: This is where we identify any imbalances that may be causing (or are likely to cause) bio-mechanical problems, which can ultimately lead to pain and immobility. Using a variety of techniques – combined with stretching and strengthening exercises – we can assist in improving your condition. These improvements can aid general health and wellbeing, creating and prolonging independence, as well as improving and maintaining sporting performance.

Treatment and Rehabilitation: After we have identified a cause, we will treat it with a combination of relevant and evidence based  therapies and advice – whether that be self treatment, exercise advice, or education. We always aim to keep you as active as possible during this phase. ‘Rest’ is not always best!

Exercise Therapy: Essential to ensure full rehabilitation, this includes strength, range of movement, balance, and proprioception exercise to help the body return to full health (and therefore pain free/a return to sport), and – just as importantly – reduce chance of re-injury.
