Sports Injuries

Injury can hamper performance and hugely impact in 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 the Initial Consultation:


A detailed history of the 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 program.


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.


Frequently seen acute and chronic sporting injuries include –


  • Calf and hamstring muscle strains
  • Ankle sprains
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Knee injuries
  • Swollen and bruised muscles and joints
  • Muscle weakness
  • Shoulder pain, weakness and dislocations

Treatment of Sport Injuries is to:

    • Restoration of full movement, strength and function using a combination of relevant stretching and strengthening techniques, analysis of posture and biomechanics.


  • Return to training and sporting fitness through a customised and graded exercise program.

We cannot speak highly enough of Elaine’s knowledge and professionalism. She is very understanding of her patient’s situation and is kind and compassionate.”


The clinic has a lovely atmosphere and staff are very friendly. Texts are sent to remind you of appointments which was great. Have seen Elaine for an on-going problem with my back, she was very experienced and provided me with helpful information. Would certainly recommend.”


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.”


Very friendly clinic, relaxing atmosphere and the service is fantastic. Currently having acupuncture & ultrasound 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.”


A very relaxing and calming environment. Great clinic that I recommend to everyone.”


I cannot praise the treatment I have received at the Artemis Clinic enough. I have gained confidence and have been able to return to a job which I love. Everyone at Artemis is so caring and positive. It has made a big difference to my life.”
