Sports Injuries

Injury can hamper performance and hugely impact on all areas of quality of life. It is not just sports people who are affected by injury, we often treat injuries that are picked up, from time to time, during our daily lives.

 

Whatever the cause of the problem, we believe no-one should live with injury and understand the importance of being able to carry out sporting, and daily activities, in a pain free manner.


At The Artemis Clinic, we are experienced in the assessment and treatment of both acute and chronic sports and musculo-skeletal injuries. If you are experiencing pain which is limiting your ability to carry out day to day activities, we are here to help.

Acute injuries are assessed and treated by our experienced chartered physiotherapist. As recovery progresses, client care is often transferred to our massage therapist. A team approach ensures you receive optimal care to accelerate a return to full sporting and daily activities.

 

What to Expect at your Initial Consultation:

 

A detailed history of your presenting condition will be taken, followed by a thorough physical assessment.

 

Once a working diagnosis has been achieved, the findings and treatment plan will be discussed. Treatment is incorporated into the initial consultation and only proceeds with the client’s consent. The most comfortable treatment methods for our clients are always used.

 

Home exercises for stretching, strengthening and posture are typically a core aspect of the treatment plan. These will be emailed to clients (with their consent) via our bespoke home exercise rehabilitation programme.

 

If a diagnostic scan or consultant referral is required, the client will be referred to the appropriate service or specialist. There is no additional charge for referrals or correspondence with medical professionals regarding our client’s care.

  • Calf and hamstring muscle strains
  • Ankle sprains

I can’t speak highly enough of the service I received at this clinic. Very professional and friendly and put me at ease straight away. I have suffered with back pain for a long time and saw Elaine who was really understanding and listened to me! I have already felt the benefits of my treatment and will be going back. They really can’t do enough for you.

Great Service, excellent communication and very friendly staff. I would recommend to anyone. 

Client feedback form

Very friendly clinic, relaxing atmosphere and the service is fantastic. Currently having Acupuncture & Ultra Sound treatment with Elaine for my back problems and this seems to be doing the trick, I wish I had found them sooner. Have also had a massage with Chloe, which is also brilliant. Highly recommended clinic.
