Our approach to sports injury treatment at Covent Garden Physio
Sports injuries are typically acute injuries which cause significant tissue damage and need to be treated carefully and precisely to ensure that the affected area achieves a full recovery.
We understand that sports injuries are not just painful, they are deeply frustrating as they deprive you of activities you are passionate about or may prevent you from doing your job.
Our sports injury treatment focuses not just on the medical aspects of your rehabilitation, but also guidance for staying active and motivated throughout what can be a mentally and emotionally challenging process.
What to expect from sports injury treatment at Covent Garden Physio
The appointment will begin with a thorough assessment and your general strength and fitness. Your physiotherapist will then guide you through a range of corrective exercises to strengthen and aid recovery of the affected area.
Our clinic is fully equipped with Pilates and strength training equipment, weights, rowing and cycling machines, a treadmill and more, giving us everything we need to restore you to your pre-injury level of physical capability or – hopefully – even better.
We will then arrange a time for a follow up appointment and give you a treatment programme which includes prescribed exercises to be performed in your own time.
Your physiotherapist may also recommend Pilates or sports massage sessions if we believe they will be beneficial.
