Sports Therapy and Functional Rehabilitation bridges the gap between traditional physical therapy and a return to activity and sport. Traditional physical diagnosis and treatment is effective in managing the symptoms initially, however at times does not fully address the underlying biomechanical or postural problems.

This will increase the likelihood of the condition reoccurring and may also lead to further injury to related tissues. We have the skills and knowledge to administer short -term pain relief, identify biomechanical weaknesses/abnormalities and correct them via an individual rehabilitation programme tailored to the patient’s lifestyle to help with the long term management of the condition.

Use of manual therapy treatment is the scientific manipulation and assessment of the soft tissues for the prevention of injuries, whilst maintaining good physical condition and health.

These benefits are achieved by improving muscle tone, promoting relaxation, stimulating circulation and producing therapeutic effects on all systems of the body.

Sports therapy is now deemed an integral part of the sports persons training regime and non-sports person alike and not just a “luxury” item. Many top athletes feel that by regular maintenance sessions they are able to sustain optimum performance and pick up on any potential problem areas before they become too severe and thus hamper their training / competition.
