OVERUSE INJURIES

Many sports injuries are ‘overuse’ injuries which do not occur as a result of trauma. Often these injuries are due to poor technique or faulty movement patterns. In order to solve your problem and stop the injury from recurring we will analyse your technique and movement patterns, often with video analysis to help educate you and alter faulty strategies. Once we know what your injury is…...the important bit is that we need to work out why. With our widespread experience and specialist knowledge, the Healthshare Sports Physiotherapists team are ideally placed to help you recover quickly and effectively.


REHABILITATION AND RETURN TO SPORT

It doesn’t matter what type of sports injury you have, full recovery needs a graded rehabilitation program. As a sports person you will appreciate the jump you need to make from being able to walk pain-free down the street to taking part in your chosen sport. Our expert team tailor your rehabilitation program to your unique needs and have a fully equipped gym with state of the art rehabilitation equipment to maximise your recovery. Should you want to reach a level to be ‘Fitter-Stronger-Better’ than pre-injury then we can refer you on to our Strength and Conditioning Coach for one-to-one Fitness training at the tail-end of your rehabilitation program.
