Sports Injury Physiotherapy

Physio for sports injuryIf you are a runner, golfer or a regular at the gym, getting a sports injury is incredibly frustrating.  That niggle reduces your performance.  You try to battle through it, hoping it will settle and go away by its own accord.  Sometimes it does, more often it doesn’t not.

Most of the time it’s because you try to rest it.  This very rarely helps.  You try a sports massage and some anti inflammatories, even though you hate taking them and doesn’t help or only helps slightly.

It can be so frustrating and a sports injury can affect your mental and physical wellbeing as you start to get a bit grumpy around the house or your weight starts to increase.  We hear this story frequently and we know how to help.
