Sports Injury

What do we mean by Functional Movement and Sports Injury?

Functional Movement and Sports Injury relate to our bodies ability to move correctly with proper joint and muscle movement which is pain free. When pain or injury occurs, it could be through biomechanical/musculoskeletal issues or through injury and trauma, both physical and psychological, caused by sporting activities; or any repetitive action including walking or simply jogging. Apart from obvious injury caused through a specific sporting activity, you could also be suffering from trauma such as pain in the foot, calf, knee, hip or lower back. In some instances, the trauma you are experiencing could be the symptom or secondary to the actual cause itself. All of these are things our specialist team are able to treat for you.
