There are two basic types of sports injury. Acute injuries are the unlucky times when you sprain an ankle or break a leg. Overuse injuries are more about your technique: putting too much strain on your body, so it breaks down over time.

Your particular type of sports injury really dictates your rehab. The important thing is to be specific: once we figure out why the injury happened, we use our expertise to minimise the chance it doesn’t happen again.





Before jumping into treatment, we need to know what’s going on. Sports injuries are all about thorough diagnosis, and sometimes that means specialist help or jumping into an MRI. Once we know the problem, we can work to relieve the pain with early intervention strategies such as hands-on treatment or dry needling. 



For impact injuries – broken bones, strained ligaments and so on – the Restore phase is about specific guidance on healing times. For overuse injuries, like Tennis Elbow, hip pain or chronic knee pain, we’ll examine your movement mechanics and fix your technique.



Perform is the final treatment phase. For sports injuries, this is all about putting your clinical program into practice. Building muscle strength and resilience, improving your flexibility, and slowly working through functional movements. Check out our classes for more information.
