How Can a Sports Therapist help me?
Sports therapists can help with a variety of issues, including muscle, tendon, ligament, and cartilage damage, back and neck pain, orthopaedic conditions (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis), post-surgical rehabilitation (ligament repair, knee and hip replacements), shoulder problems (frozen shoulder, instability), and postural issues, among others. It makes no difference if your injury occurred during sport or not. Everyone has something they enjoy doing in their spare time, whether its playing football, walking the dog, or playing an instrument. All of these activities will necessitate a treatment that considers your preferred pastime
"A three-dimensional picture of what lies beneath the skin is painted in the brains of skilled sports therapists. To be able to think on your feet and understand how bones, nerves, cartilage, muscles, arteries, and ligaments glide, slide, contract, and relax takes years of training and study."
Treatment is individually tailored to suit you
Sports Therapy is an effective treatment for many people, regardless of their fitness level, age, or sporting activity. Each patient's treatment is tailored to his or her specific needs. Ruth has previously helped young athlete's preparing for cross-country running events, as well as more mature patients who are suffering with back pain following a day of gardening.
