Sports therapy works on a variety of musculoskeletal injuries from the acute stage, normally non- or partially weight bearing, through to fully weight bearing functional activities. Treatments reduce pain and inflammation and so restore full range of movement. It is a combination of massage, joint manipulation, ultrasound and interferential therapy to achieve, this blends well with the other treatment modalities available at the Tarka Clinic.
Treatment can also incorporate a rehabilitation programme to strengthen the injured structures and allow the individual to return to his/her chosen sport and accept the rotational stress forces that are imposed on them.
Our resident Sports Therapist is Phil Sheddon.
