Specialist Physiotherapy treatment for sports injuries in Newmarket

Almost any part of your body can be affected by a sports injury including your muscles, ligaments, joints, bones and tendons.

Sprains, strains and overuse injuries are very common if you play sports or exercise regularly but whether you’ve had an accident, tweaked something while exercising or your symptoms started later on, most sports injuries respond really well to physiotherapy treatment.

Accidents are common but there are other factors which increase your risk of developing a sports injury like poor training patterns (building up too quickly), incorrect footwear, poor strength, inefficient ways of moving, low levels of fitness and lack of preparation of your body before exercising (warm up or prehab). These factors are all avoidable. So once you’re on the path to recovery, our physiotherapists will look for the underlying causes and quite simply teach you how to prevent injuries before they occur again.

Common sports injuries treated here

Physiotherapy treatment will be quite different from patient to patient, depending on the type of injury you’ve sustained and how long you’ve had it. Some sports injuries can be quite minor, some serious enough to stop you from continuing your sport in the short term. The most common injuries we see here in our Newmarket clinic include:

  • Joint sprains
  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Ligament injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Tendon problems (especially the Achilles tendon and Runner’s Knee)
  • Knee pain (ITB syndrome and patellofemoral pain)
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Plantarfaciitis (heel pain)

How a physiotherapist can help with a sports injury

Whether you’ve had your injury for a long time (chronic sports injury) or you’ve only just hurt yourself (acute sports injury), please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss whether physiotherapy would be a good treatment option for you.

Some of the physiotherapy treatments we can offer at our Newmarket Clinic include ultrasound, supportive sports taping, gentle joint mobilisations and remedial massage. We will teach you what to do to help your injury heal quickly and get you back to your normal activities as fast as possible with a rehabilitation programme of exercises and plyometrics specifically designed for you and your sport.
