Foot & Ankle
Ankle sprains are common place for not only the elite sports person, but also the more sedentary among us. They can be very debilitating and often frustrating to deal with. We all know someone who has ‘gone over on their ankle’ and the advice they have received has often been very limited. Let our expertise take the doubt out of the equation. We can provide hands on treatment and appropriate rehabilitation and strengthening exercises to get you back on your feet quickly. We also have the expertise of our resident Podiatrist Adnan Nazir to call upon should you need advice on orthotics (shoe inserts), footwear or even video analysis of your gait.
One of the most complex joints in the body is the shoulder. If you have ever had shoulder problems, then you will know how debilitating they can be. The good news is that this joint responds well to the right hands-on treatment in combination with specific rehabilitation exercises.
- Frozen Shoulder
- Labral tears
- Rotator cuff tears
- SLAP lesions
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Bursitis & Impingement
- AC joint injuries
Knee pain is very common, and as a result it can have an impact on your daily activity, whether that be walking up the stairs or training for the marathon. There are many knee problems that involve the whole kinetic chain, so the muscles that surround the joints above and below play an important role in recovery.
The common injuries that we see to the knee include:
- Anterior Knee Pain
- Ligament strains and tears (such as Anterior Cruciate ACL, Medial Collateral MCL)
- Meniscus tears
- Patella tendinopathy
- Osteo Arthritis
- ITB (Ilio Tibial Band) Syndrome
- Patella tracking
- Patella dislocation
- Osgood Schlatters Disease
The most common elbow injuries are named after sports, Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow. But you don’t have to be a sports person to pick up these types of injury. So whether you play sports or not, your elbow or forearm pain can often be treated in the same way to great effect.
Hand & Wrist
Many hand and wrist conditions are overlooked as lots of sufferers don’t realise that anything can be done to help them. A hands on treatment approach is often the key to managing these complaints and restoring normal function. Some of the conditions that can be treated include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Trigger Finger
- Finger dislocations and fractures
- Tendon injuries
- Trigger Finger
The diagnosis of your hip pain is key to how to improve it. There are a number of conditions that can refer pain into the hip area, and identifying the cause of your pain rather than treating the symptoms is the most effective way to restore function and decrease the symptoms.
Some of the conditions that we see regularly are:
- Sacro Iliac Joint dysfunction
- Hip joint impingement (FAI)
- Osteo Arthritis of the hip
- Trochanteric Bursitis
- Osteitis Pubis
- Adductor Tendinopathy
- Illiopsoas Strain
There are many types of Sports Injuries, and many factors that contribute to them. Muscle strains can occur for a number of reasons and often biomechanical imbalances are a contributor. Joints sprains are part and parcel of many sports too. The most important thing is to provide the best treatment and the best advice to the patient. With our extensive background in professional sport, we understand how important it is to return quickly to your sport or activity, and prevent the issue from returning.
Whether it is your knee, hip ankle, back, neck or shoulder, we will be able to provide treatment, advice and exercises to help you continue being active.

- Repetitive Strain / Overuse Injury (RSI)
