Sports Injuries can be very frustrating. Often our clients will tell us that they have tried to rest but that each time they try to return to their sport or even a higher level of intensity, they cannot because pain stops them.
Typically, people have tried taking paracetamol and anti-inflammatories as well as resting, but they are still unable to do their sport.
As Physiotherapists we can diagnose exactly what you have done and suggest a plan of action to get you back to your sport ASAP.
What type of injuries do you see?
- Tendinitis such as Achilles and Gluteal
- Muscle and tendon strains
- Overuse injuries
- Stress fractures
- ITB syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Muscle Imbalances
What will the therapist do?
Our Physiotherapist will be able to diagnose your injury and set out a plan of action. They will diagnose your problem using a variety of ‘special tests’ and movements to determine the cause of the pain. They will then give you the medical name for your condition (so that you can also do your own research if you wish).
The treatment usually consists of doing a combination of treatment modalities such as massage, taping, a progressive exercise programme and always a plan of how to get you back to your sport.
We can speak (or write) to your coach or personal trainer so that everyone understands the problem and how they can help you best.
The choice is down to you, either wait it out or get help. If you are unsure if we can help you then why not book for a Free Physiotherapy Assessment.

Here is what our clients are saying…
I couldn’t play football because of knee pain.
Two different doctors told me to rest and gave me anti-inflammatories over a 6-month period. If I tried to play, I suffered with pain afterwards.
When I contacted AP&SIC, I was worried that I might pay for treatment and it wouldn’t work. But this was not the case. The treatments were very good; I was given exercises to do at home; which I stuck to!
I progressed and got better and a month later I was finally back playing football.
I experienced pain in my shoulder when training and throwing Javelin. This was getting progressively worse and we worried it either was or would become a serious injury. The Physiotherapist was really helpful and explained at each stage what was being done and the exercises have been very helpful.
My parents and I felt reassured at all points in the treatment. Whilst I still have a long way to go, the changes in movement and pain have been positive so far and I am still competing. The Physiotherapist also recommended a good consultant who is also working with us to try and get the best outcome, as a future in Javelin throwing is important to me.
The Physio at AP&SIC was fantastic, professional and a pleasure to receive treatment from. I felt 100% confident that I was fit for my marathon based on the Physiotherapist’s assessment and treatment and I couldn’t have crossed the finish line without her. 🙂
