Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy is an aspect of medical health care, focused on the prevention of injury, management and rehabilitation of the patient back to full functional sports or occupational fitness. 

 

Sports Therapy isn't just for the sports person. Postural problems and day to day living will lead to imbalance in strength and flexibility and this is something that Sports Therapy can help with.

 

As Sports Therapists we are able to assess and treat a wide variety of injuries, from acute (new) to chronic (old) problems, postural and biomechanical faults in sporting and non sporting bodies. 

 

We are regulated by the Society of Sports Therapists
