Over the last 6 years working in Professional Football and now Professional Rugby, Sports injuries have been our focus and specialist subject.
The nature of the sports injury varies greatly depending on the nature of the sport, the build of the sportsperson and the mechanism of the injury. Some can be from a specific injury or incident, others through overuse, whilst others may result from poor training methods, or poor conditioning. The resulting damage may be very slight and allow the person to be back to full sporting activities fairly quickly.
For this type of injury some forms of self help may be sufficient to regain full recovery. Others unfortunately may be more serious, where in order to minimise further damage and allow a quicker return to the sport, professional help should be sought through a chartered physiotherapist.
