Sports Assessment and Rehabilitation
Sports injuries are injuries that occur during an athletic activity. They can result from acute trauma, or from overuse of a particular body part. Overuse and repetitive stress injury problems associated with sports include runner’s knee or tennis elbow. Many of our Physiotherapists have either worked with or competed themselves at high and elite level Sport and we are very proud to have the Oxford Boat Team Physiotherapists as part of our team.
Our University Club clinic in Oxford adjoins a gym which we can use to analyse your running, rowing or cycling technique and set up a strength and conditioning or rehab programme. Treatment may include joint mobilisations / manipulation, myofascial release, sports massage, acupuncture, kinesio-taping, as well as advice and exercise. We have close links for referrals to Consultants in Sports and Exercise Medicine and we can refer for private MRI if further investigation or imaging is required.
Sports massage may form a part of your physiotherapy treatment or be booked as a stand-alone treatment with a sports massage therapist. If you have an injury we would recommend a physiotherapy assessment to discuss the best treatment options with you and you will have the added benefit of our physiotherapy skills and knowledge as well as massage.
