Our treatment strategies are designed to suit your unique needs, however we do provide Clinical Pilates at our Preston physiotherapy clinic. It’s an exceptional complementary fitness option for athletes, offering great rehabilitation benefits and aiding in injury prevention. 

Sports physiotherapy offers a proactive strategy for injury prevention by pinpointing potential weaknesses, imbalances, or mobility restrictions within your musculoskeletal system. From these insights, we craft personalised exercise and conditioning regimes that not only fortify these areas but also boost your general strength, flexibility, and stamina. In addition, we provide guidance on correct physical activity techniques, empowering you to engage in your preferred sports more safely and confidently. 

General physiotherapy encompasses various conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, but sports physiotherapy concentrates on issues and injuries associated with physical activity and sports. Our sports physiotherapists have extensive experience in sporting injuries, performance enhancement, and the particular requirements of different sports, making it possible for them to tailor a treatment plan that caters to your unique athletic goals. 

Sports physiotherapy offers benefits to all individuals engaged in physical activities, irrespective of their competitive level. Whether you’re a casual participant, a dedicated fitness enthusiast, or simply someone aspiring to be more active, sports physiotherapy can assist in recuperating from injuries, averting potential issues, and maximising physical performance. The core principles of sports physiotherapy are relevant to every level of activity, facilitating secure and effective involvement in any sporting or exercise endeavour. 

Sports physiotherapy is particularly adept at managing long-standing conditions or old injuries. By assessing the injury’s impact on your current physical capabilities, a sports physiotherapist can develop a personalised recovery plan that targets reducing ongoing pain, increasing mobility, and restoring strength and function to the affected areas. 

The time it takes to recover from a sports injury varies, dependent on the nature and gravity of the injury, your overall physical condition, and your responsiveness to therapy. Our sports physiotherapists will establish a tailored recovery plan after your initial assessment and will modify it as your treatment progresses. 

Our approach incorporates various methods, including exercise therapy, remedial sports massage, manual therapy, joint mobilisation, and dry needling. We collaborate with you to pinpoint the optimal treatment strategy to fulfill your goals.
