I am experienced in treating patients with a wide variety of conditions including traumatic injuries, overuse problems, fractures and dislocations.
I have successfully helped athletes return to their individual sports and hobbies at all standards of ability from recreational and social sports clubs to those competing at county, national and international levels.
Each sport requires a blend of various skills and abilities. I have treated top sportsmen with totally different objectives and needs, in sports as diverse as : pistol shooting, orienteering, rugby union, skiing and swimming. However it is equally satisfying to help those aiming to return to recreational and social sport.
Treatment techniques include mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy and structured exercise programmes.
Advice is always given on self management and prevention whenever possible.
This is known as the R.I.C.E. method of self treatment.
These activities increase bleeding and swelling.
