What is Sports Therapy?

Sports Therapy focuses specifically on the rehabilitation of an individuals injury, with the aim of returning them to full functional fitness as quickly as possible. With continued treatment, future injuries can often be prevented. 

This involves skilled hands-on assessment and diagnostic testing to determine the individual's treatment needs. Deep Tissue Treatment, Ultrasound therapy (where appropriate), structured exercises and stretches will then be utilised to treat the specific injuries.

  • Chronic pain

  • Limited Mobility

  • Muscle Tension and Spasms

  • Postural Problems

  • Tension headaches and Migraines

  • Sports Injuries

Sports Therapy and Deep Tissue Treatment/Massage should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or a health professional for medical attention and advice. 

 

Whilst Medical Acupuncture and Myofascial Cupping can be undertaken as forms of treatment on their own, they can also be used in conjunction with other complementary treatments such as Sports Therapy and Deep Tissue Treatment.

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial Cupping originates from Egypt, dating back to 1550 BC. It is a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or suction on the skin using plastic cups that pull up underlying tissues, blood and other fluids close to the surface of the skin. 

Myofascial Cups are positioned over tight muscles and fascial and are either left 'static' or are used in a 'gliding' motion. It can help treat soft tissue conditions and musculo-skeletal tension, pain, and common sporting injuries. It can also create relaxation through stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.
