Sports injuries can happen to anyone - from enthusiastic amateurs to elite athletes. With over 25 years experience at the highest levels, our lead physiotherapist oversees a multi-disciplinary team, here to support you on your sports injury rehabilitation journey.
Our comprehensive range of treatments means we're confident that we'll get you back in the game quicker than a service using a single treatment approach.
The friendly and highly-professional team here at Physical Edge includes physiotherapists, sports massage therapists, osteopaths, strength and conditioning coaches, Pilates trainers, and more. Talk to us today to find out how we can help.
We have a systematic approach to dealing with sports injuries with physiotherapy. We will consider your unique issue, the explore strengthening exercises, mobilisation techniques, pain relief strategies, and function skills development to help you work towards an enhanced level of performance.
We will use our expertise to put together a detailed rehabilitation process with personal goals - then monitor your progress as you work through your sessions.
Our sports injury services aren't just for use by professional athletes - whether your sporting injury has been picked up in the gym, playing sports in the park, or in professional competitions - we're confident our approach will take you back to your previous level of fitness and make you more resilient to injury moving forward.
If you play sports and you're suffering with a specific injury, our team has the elite-level knowledge and experience required to get you back in action as quickly as possible.
We often use soft tissue therapy and deep tissue friction massage to compliment physiotherapy or osteopath treatments. Combined, these approaches can be exceptionally effective.
The point of your pain isn't always where the issue lies - so we'll use a range of techniques to work with your muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia to make sure any potential issues are dealt with and you're less susceptible to injury going forward.
Don't worry - a sports massage won't be a feat of endurance. We'll make sure we're always working within your pain tolerance through careful communication and active listening.
Unfortunately, sporting injuries are almost inevitable if you workout or train frequently. Osteopathy will help you recover quickly - and will make sure you're as resilient as possible going forward.
We have a proven track record of working extremely effectively with sports people at all levels. We'll employ proven approaches to enhance joint mobility, relieve muscle tension and ease soft tissue restrictions.
Expert knowledge of the athletic musculoskeletal framework and a combination of touch, physical manipulation, stretching, and massage will significantly improve your recovery time and restore the structural balance you need to perform.
There are very few injuries we're not equipped to deal with. Recent examples include:
Rotator cuff injury
Of course, there are injuries that require specialist exercise medicine intervention from sports physicians or surgical intervention from orthopaedic surgeons. Don't worry - this is rare - but if you do need more specialist sports medicine advice or treatment, we'll be able to talk you through what your next steps should be.
When you trust Physical Edge to help you on the road to recovery, the professionals you're working with have experience and accreditation at the highest levels.
Our team includes:
Osteopaths - registered with both the General Osteopathic Council and The British Osteopathic Association.
Massage therapists – with knowledge and working experience at the highest level of professional sports.
Physiotherapists – each members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health & Care Professions Council.
Don't worry if you're not 100% certain about the exact treatment type that's right for you. We don't expect you to come to Physical Edge with detailed thoughts around how you'll get better - that's where our decades of sports injury experience comes into play.
There's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to dealing with any specific injury - everyone is different, with different lives, activity levels, sporting commitments, eating plans, and much more.
We'll treat you like an individual, tailoring everything to suit your requirements and get you back to the level of fitness that you want.
When you book a sports injury consultation here at Physical Edge, we'll begin by finding a time that works around your diary. Our sports injury clinic is open before, during, and after standard working hours - and if that still doesn't fit - we have weekend appointments available too.
Your assessment will take place in our comfortable and well-equipped private treatment room. You'll be able to talk to one of our expert therapists and, in turn, you'll ask some questions and walk you through possible treatment and rehabilitation plans.
We'll usually be able to start your treatment in the same session - so it's worth wearing or bringing some comfortable sports clothing. Don't worry if you've come straight from the office though - you're welcome to use our private changing facilities.
