Acute Injury Management

The key to management of any sports injuries is ‘Early, Accurate Diagnosis’. Once diagnosed an appropriate treatment plan can be administered and if necessary onward referral for further investigations (MRI, X-Rays) or opinions of a consultant.

The Physio Group has an extensive network of specialists both in Ireland and the whole of the UK to ensure your injury is managed by the best professional available

Treatment of Sports Injuries

  1. Effective ‘Hands On’ Physiotherapy treatment
  2. Gym sessions if required
  3. Pitch based sessions depending on requirements of your sport

The most important aspect of an acute sports injury is a safe return to full sporting activity as without adequate rehabilitation or too quick return to play leaves the athlete vulnerable to recurrence. Our physios will set criteria for each individual injury which the athlete must achieve to progress to the next level of rehabilitation and ultimately return to competing. These are achieved through progressive loading of the injured area whilst conditioning the rest of the body. We aim for injured athletes to rehab above and beyond the requirements of their spirt if possible so they return to full training with confidence!

Chronic Injury Management

Very often sports injuries become chronic (long-term) due to:

  1. Return to sport too early
  2. Misdiagnosis/poor management
  3. Ineffective treatment
  4. Poor rehabilitation

Commonly these injuries include:

  1. Recurrent muscle injuries e.g. hamstrings or quads
  2. Tendonitis
  3. Groin pain
  4. Low back pain

At Our Clinic we will provide:

  1. Accurate diagnosis
  2. Hands on treatment
  3. Functional movement testing
  4. Structured rehabilitation program
  5. Effective on-ward referral if unlikely to respond to physiotherapy
