A close look at sports injury

Sports injuries tend to arise either from a specific trauma, such as a bad tackle or a collision, or when an increase in functional demand is placed upon a fatigued joint or soft tissue that isn’t working properly. Our team specialise in identifying the source of long term chronic injuries, often we see patients that have never had complete resolution from pain.

Correct diagnosis can highlight certain issues such as inadequate biomechanical or postural problems that can be corrected by orthotic devices that are prescribed by our Podiatrist. Likewise problems with the teeth and jaw and the upper neck can be highlighted as the source of pain often felt elsewhere in the body.
