Our sports therapist can perform various treatment interventions that are suitable and most beneficial to your injury/condition and personal history.

Here are some of the commonly used treatments used:

  • Sports/Remedial Massage– Sports Massage is a treatment for an individual with an injury. This helps relieve muscle tension, which can reduce pain and the risk of injury. 
  • Taping– various taping methods can be used within a treatment session to help reduce pain, decrease swelling. This helps to provide support to injured areas, and improves athlete performance. 


Depending on the nature of your injury/condition, rehabilitation is necessary and essential in most cases. Sports therapy can support and guide you through an individualised rehabilitation programme, offering advice on exercise-based rehabilitation to return to daily life including activities, hobbies, work or sport.

  • Non-sporting rehabilitation – Rehabilitation for those with injuries, aches and pains.  This helps individuals back to optimum levels of everyday life. This is irrespective of age and ability and is achieved by focusing on movement and gait that may cause daily stresses and strains. Therefore, sports therapy aims to increase your movement and strength range and reduce the risk of further injury.
  • Sports specific rehabilitation – supporting an athlete through the early stage of injury, all the way to returning to their sport successfully.  Providing the right rehabilitation will assist those looking to return to their sport with confidence.  To achieve this, exercises and sports-specific drills are essential. Above all, this is because of the focus on biomechanical gait and increasing movement and strength. This will, in turn, help to reduce the risk of further injury.
  • Injury Prevention (Prehabilitation) – this is ultimately essential for everybody in their everyday life, whether this helps to prevent further injury whilst at work or being involved in sport… which relates to keeping you injury-free in the future.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a deep form of soft tissue mobilisation. A sports massage can be applied in a sporting and non-sporting context. Sports massage involves a wide range of techniques that include effleurage, kneading, wringing, hacking and trigger pointing. A sports massage is used for general relaxation of the muscular skeletal system as well as being directed towards any problem areas. Sports massage helps relieve muscular tension, break down adhesion’s, mobilise soft tissues and reduce pain.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.
