We understand that a sports injury can be devastating!
They usually hurt! And not only that a good sports injury will take you out of action often at the worse time imaginable. It will also affect your daily life, sleep, social life, work and you are probably grumpy with your loved ones too! But doesn’t stop there, if you play in a team being injured can also have a significant effects on your club.
At the clinic we have seen every sports injury injury imaginable and they aren’t just sustained by athletes! Recreational sports people and agricultural worker are at high risk factor for severe injury too.
Whether your injury occurs the week before a match or at the end of a long season get in contact as soon as possible and get it fixed.

Once you are injury free it is essential you understand your personal injury risk factors and learn some easy to apply prevention strategies. Learning how to improve these will also enhance your performance!
We are passionate about educating you how prevent injuries and occasionally we host injury prevention workshops to spread the word.
