Sports Therapy

As stated by the Society of Sports Therapists - Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional,
occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

It utilities the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.

Prevention & Injury Assessment

I am a specialist in sports injuries. I have worked and have been involved in semi professional rugby and am still currently playing in the ladies premiership south. Therefore I have the ability to understand what it takes to become a successful sports person.

I regularly review the following injuries:

Ultrasound Treatment

Phases of healing

Inflammation Stage
It has been proven that during this stage the inflammatory process is speed up to bring around proliferation.

Proliferation stage
Ultrasound appears to encourage alignment of collagen and results in increased strength and elasticity of the scar.

Remodelling
Thought to also improve strength and elasticity of a scar.

Rehabilitation

It is the management of exercise to get the athlete back to a playing state without the hinderance of an injury. What is my role? To assist the athlete in any area to make sure they are capable physically and mentally to perform. My aim is to effectively devise a plan that is beneficial to the athlete to get them back in the quickest time but in the safest way, to prevent deconditioning and to set short and long term goals to maintain and good psychological climate.

Medical Acupuncture

At BodyCare Sport Injury Specialists, Medical Acupuncture (also known as Dry Needling) is practised. This is the process by which needles are inserted following Western approved anatomy and physiology which differs from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Medical acupuncture does not claim to treat every condition as each treatment is personalised to the specific requirements of the patients and the treatment strategy.
