Sports Injuries

Want a fast, strong recovery with professional, expert guidance in order to maximise future success? Our sports injury clinic is for you.

Do you wish you could make a quick recovery with the strength to prevent injuries occurring again, and keep healthy and active long term?

When you are facing the challenge of a sports injury, and don’t rectify the problem quickly, you may develop a chronic longer term problem. This prevents you from continuing to participate in your sport into the future, affecting your long term health in both mind and body.

After working with our expert physiotherapists, you will be back to enjoying your sports and leisure activities with the strength to help prevent injuries occurring again. We know that if you stop there is a danger you may never be able to start again effectively.

That’s why we have a close partnership with Aqua Physio, a hydrotherapy facility in Morden. Whilst we are working with you on your recovery, you can continue to exercise in their warm water pool where they offer aqua running, walking or swimming. Click here for more information.

Causes of Sports Injuries

Most sports injuries are caused by:

  • Impact (trauma), a direct damage to the tissues.
  • An overuse (micro trauma), due to repetitive excessive loading or friction.

With an injury, changes occur in the structure of the tissues. They initially occur at the site of the injury, but if untreated, then secondary damage can occur in the neighbouring cells due to oxygen deficiency and chemical changes.

Sports Injuries we see very commonly:

  • Anterior and posterior cruciate ligament injury
  • Anterior knee pain
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Ankle sprains
  • Back pain
  • Calf strain
  • Calf tear
  • Elbow ligament injuries
  • Foot pain due to repetitive stress
  • Golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • Groin pain
  • Hamstring pulls or tears
  • Heel pain
  • Hip pain
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Iliopsoas syndrome
  • Knee injuries – ligaments
  • Piriformis
  • PCL injury
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Quadriceps pull or tear
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder bursitis / impingement
  • Whiplash
  • Wrist and hand injuries

Our Guarantee

If we find your recovery is not progressing satisfactorily within 3 treatment sessions, we will refer you on to a GP or Consultant for further investigation. Don’t let your sports injury prevent you from returning to the sport you love to ensure a healthy and active future.
