Sports activities are a regular way of life for many, involving a wide range of people from all age groups and fitness levels, from the casual participant, to the elite professional athlete. Many of the injuries people suffer during sport are a result of overuse, i.e. playing too hard to often e.g. tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and biceps tendonitis. They can also commonly be due to poor technique, poor posture, and failure to warm up or down properly during a workout or even ill-fitting equipment.
The good news is that although sports injuries are common, those who are fit tend to recover more quickly and easily from their injuries. Our therapists have in depth knowledge of sports injuries allowing them to restore balance to your body, improving flexibility and movement to enhance your performance.
