What to expect at your appointment

To aid your recovery and reduce the risk of future injury, we may provide you with a number of exercises to do at home.

Embracing a Proactive Approach
Prevention is better than cure. Professional sports therapy can also be used as a preventative measure. For instance, some programmes involve providing patients with a greater degree of mobility through stretching exercises. Other may instead focus upon core stability training or muscular strengthening in order to reduce the strain associated with a certain muscle group. Our ultimate objective is to work together with the patient in order to appreciate his or her unique needs.
