Sports Injuries

Why you need Clinical Sports Massage and Sports Therapy

As a therapist I’m not only concerned with treatment and management of sports injuries, but also the preventing sports injuries and the good training practices needed for a healthy body.

As a keen runner, cyclist and climber, I know personally, the frustration that injury causes, and will work to the best of my ability to keep you participating in your chosen sports and activities. Experience has shown that often, with the correct management, I can keep you active until symptoms resolve.

When I examine and treat you, my goal is not only to relieve your symptoms, but also to remove the conditions that can predispose you to injury, stop the pain of the injury and try to stop it re-occurring. Leaving you fit and able to carry on with your exercise plans.
