Whether an eldery person rolls their ankle when walking or a rugby player rolls their ankle during a game it's likely that both will have injured their ankle ligaments to some degree.
Sports therapists understand that each individual's lifestyle and situation are different, which is why we listen and provide personalised treatment and rehabilitation programs to support your return back to optimal health, function and specific fitness levels (e.g. walking or rugby training/competition).
No matter your age, ability, fitness level or chosen sport/activity we can all use a helping hand to improve our movement, health and performance. Acute and chronic injuries as well as pain can severely affect these as our body attempts to heal and keep going with the demands we place upon it. This can lead to muscular imbalances, compensations, muscle tightness, poor flexibility, joint stiffness and poor motor control (to name a few).
Sports therapists use their knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pain and injuries (joints, bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles), especially those related to sport and exercise. They also advise on injury prevention and support rehabilitation, using a range of treatment methods such as:
The goal is to assist your body’s own healing mechanisms, improve joint mobility, relieve muscle tension and to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues.
Like Sports Therapy you don't have to be a sports person to benefit from massage. Sports massage is beneficial to anyone, including office workers, people in physically demanding jobs and anyone experiencing muscular tightness or soreness due to high levels of stress in their lives.
Sports and remedial massage therapy is a form of manual therapy that involves a blend of tissue compression, stretching, and toning. It’s a great tool to help maintain peak bodily performance, support the healing of injuries and combat the stresses placed on your body during daily life and training.
