Sport Injuries

Injuries can be new, acute or chronic. The key thing is to manage and get to the root of the problem. Injuries can plague for a long while and can stop you from doing what you enjoy!

We not only get stuck in right away but use everything at our disposal to get you moving in the right direction.

We educate you on your injury, what to do next, how best to improve it, alongside hands on treatment to treat the painful area.

Why us?

At R&D Physio Sporting injuries have been a major area of interest with some of our clinicians having worked with cricket teams, tennis clubs, marathon runners, rock climbers and much more.

Our clinicians themselves have active participation in sports and know all about injuries. Improving strength is not our only agenda. Conditioning, improving control, improving flexibility where needed and specific exercise therapy is what a client gets.

If we feel that you may require Personal Training we are linked with many health clubs around the local area to help you get to your goals.

Running Assessments

Whether you are training for a marathon or just a weekend run to feel good, R&D Physios know the importance of a good running assessment to rule out any sites of potential injuries or analyse your running pattern for the cause of your injury.

Our clinicians have undergone specialist training to use Functional Specific Movement and other models of assessing and rehabilitating injury. We assess cadence (how many steps a minute), stride length, vertical running height and much more.

Our service also reviews you on the treadmill using Video Analysis to pick out any potential running abnormalities.

Strength and Conditioning is key in building your ability to run. The leading marathon/sprint runners spend as many hours running as they spend doing weight training or control training.

Injuries related to running (RRIs) can be as high as 20.3% – 84.9% and from 3 to 59 RRIs per 1000 hours of running.
