Sports Injuries

These may occur as acute muscle strains, such as a sprained ankle or a shoulder injury. They may also be recurring problems such as groin strains or hamstring tears.

With all muscular or sporting injuries it is important to get early advice so that the pain improves as quickly as possible.

Physiotherapy treatment and advice can settle injuries much more quickly with mobilizations, correct stretches and strengthening exercises.
