SPORTS INJURY CLINIC

Xcel Health provides initial treatment, exercise programmes and support in returning to full function.

Sports Injury Assessment

Sports injuries can arise due to a slight imbalance in your muscles, stiffness in your joints, poor flexibility or a need to alter your technique. Our highly experienced sports physiotherapists understand the mechanics of each sport and will undertake a full sports injury assessment. Following this assessment we will work with you to prepare a comprehensive programme to prepare you to participate in your chosen activity.

Many of our clients have found that the sooner you come to us for an assessment the better. However, don’t worry if you have already started training and have some niggles, we can undertake a sports injury assessment, treat your niggles and help you to avoid further injury.

FAQ's

General

We advise that you arrive 5-10 minutes early for your first appointment to allow time to complete registration documents. Your therapist will then greet you from reception and take you through to the consultation room where you will be asked your reason for attending, the nature and history of your condition and any details that may be relevant to your assessment or treatment. The therapist will then do a detailed assessment on you to arrive at a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, the therapist will explain the findings and outline a treatment plan. If there is time, treatment will be given as part of your first session.

We generally advise that you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. We also suggest that you wear/bring shorts for hip, knee or back problems. You may be asked to remove one or more items of clothing to enable the therapist to assess your condition. Any clients wishing to bring a chaperone are more than welcome.

The follow up sessions generally last for 30 minutes. During the follow up session, we discuss the progress with you and alter the management plan if needed, after discussing with you various options of treatment available.

Everyone is different and responds differently to treatment. In the majority of cases, we would expect to see symptoms eased after the first session but in other cases it may take a few sessions to really notice a difference. It is important to note that on some occasions, your symptoms may become temporarily aggravated following a session. This is a normal reaction, particular if your injury is quite acute. It is nothing to be worried about but is important to feedback to your therapist so treatment can be adjusted in subsequent sessions.
