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:

  • Ankle Sprains
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Stress Fractures
  • Knee Injuries
  • Hamstring Strain
  • Muscle Strain
  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow
  • Wrist Sprains

Your first visit:

No matter whether you are in pain with an injury or want to try and keep a healthy well-oiled body each patient will undergo a subjective examination and assessment. This is too find a cause for the problem, highlight any predisposing factors, design a course of treatment different from what you may be doing at the time and to allow a baseline for reassessment in order to monitor improvement. The full body reassessment acts like a M.O.T, it can highlight when structures have changed, if nothing has changed and help prevent the risk of injury with constant monitoring.

Prevention

There are many predisposing factors to increase the risk of injury. Within the initial consultation the full assessment will be used to highlight anything that could cause an increase in injury. During the assessment you will be notified and recommended a couple of exercises to get you going and if needed treatment at the time. Once your consultation is over the overall findings will be used in order to create a specific pre-habilitation program in the event to reduce the risk of injury. It should be noted that the programs are only to help reduce the risk of injury and can not prevent injury all together.
