Sports injury treatment
As part of Horsham Back Pain, we have a sports injury clinic.
Keeping fit and playing sports at any level, places a great deal of stress and on the human body. Although you are fit, repetitive movements and dynamic movements mean that you can be more prone to injuries. This is because you are using your body more and pushing its limits.
When you do injure yourself, you want to get better quickly and back to your sporting activities. To do this you need an expert that really understands the body and what to do when it goes wrong.
We can provide you with the treatment, help, and advice you need to help you achieve this. Expert advice and specific treatment are provided for you, as well as understanding your activity and the way you injured yourself.
Treatment usually includes trying to maintain some of your particular activity. We can also use your particular sport as part of an integrated rehabilitation program.
Sports & training specific
Some sports injuries can be sports specific or just tend to have injuries associated with them. Runners knee, golfers elbow, are examples that are common, in those sports. Other, specific injuries such as achilles tendon, cruciate ligament strain, and others may also be associated with some sports such as footballers and sprinters.
By understanding the demands of the specific sport, we find the mechanism of injury and the best treatment and rehabilitation.
Training can be a way of life. It can play a huge part in stress relief, weight control and our general health.
Our goal is to get you better as quickly and effectively as possible, with the advice and treatment you deserve!
Treatment, therefore, must be effective for strains and sprains of every joint, muscle, tendon and ligament in the body. It must also take into consideration the actions of a sport. It is designed to relieve symptoms, reduce pain and discomfort, reduce the inflammatory process and promote tissue healing. So, pain is more often than not a result of localised swelling of tissue, which then creates localised pressure and pain.
The initial goals therefore are, to relieve symptoms, reduce pain and discomfort, reduce the inflammatory process and promote tissue healing. The pain is more often than not a result of localised swelling of tissue, which then creates localised pressure and pain.
The science of treatment
Here is the ‘sciency’ bit –the body is a complicated machine, where all the parts work together but, bodies must work “in balance”. In effect, left side and right side, front and back, the list goes on. Once we understand how the imbalance and/or injury has occurred then we can fix the local injury and the resulting imbalance. This is where yin/yang also come from. Or in mathematical terms x=y.
The human body is essentially a very complicated equation that needs to be resolved or “balanced”.
