Sports Injuries

At The Artemis Clinic, we offer chartered physiotherapy and massage therapy for both acute and chronic sports injuries.

Typical sports injuries seen at the clinic are:


  • Muscle strains
  • Ankle sprains
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Knee injuries
  • Swollen and bruised muscles and joints
  • Muscle weakness and wasting following injury
  • Shoulder pain, weakness and dislocations

The Aim of Physiotherapy for Sport Injuries is to:


  • Eliminate scar tissue and adhesions in the injured area, encourage regeneration of new tissue using techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, joint mobilisations, acupuncture and ultrasound.
  • Restoration of full range of movement, strength and function using a combination of relevant stretching and strengthening techniques, analysis of posture, biomechanics and sport relevant techniques.
  • Return to training and sporting fitness through a customised and graded exercise programme.

Frequently seen acute and chronic sporting injuries include –


  • Calf and hamstring muscle strains
  • Ankle sprains
  • Back Pain and Neck Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Knee injuries
  • Swollen and bruised muscles and joints
  • Muscle weakness in the upper and lower limbs
  • Shoulder pain, weakness and dislocations

When injury occurs, the rapid application of the following are all important:


  • The RICE system – Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.
  • Anti-inflammatory medication is often beneficial within the first 48 hours of injury.
  • Early physiotherapy intervention to accelerate healing and prevent further damage.
  • Initial consultation including treatment £47
  • Follow-up sessions £42


Payment may be made by credit card or cash.

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.
