Rehab Sports Therapy for management of muscular problems
Sports Therapy Assessment aims to assess and rehabilitate injuries by easing pain and allowing the rehabilitation of injuries caused by sport, poor posture, joint and muscular complaints.
An initial Remedial Therapy Assessment is a thorough consultation and assessment to locate the root cause of your issue and give you advice for a personalised treatment plan. You can combine the initial 30 minute assessment with a 30 minute Remedial Massage Therapy appointment, to start receiving hands-on treatment straight away.
Sports therapy does not only involve working with ‘injured athletes’ but also deals with members of the public with lifestyle or posture-related injuries, such as back and shoulder pain, repetitive strain injuries and mobility problems.
Treatments used in sports therapy:
- Postural assessments are used to identify postural imbalances and review whether they may be responsible for causing various musculoskeletal problems e.g. low back pain. Various techniques are used including stretching, postural realignment, manual therapy and rehabilitative exercise to improve the client posture. Myofascial release is also used to release any restrictions within the connective tissue, which is often a cause of muscular problems and postural imbalances. These postural improvements can provide a sense of well-being and may assist in sporting performance.
- Injury treatment and rehabilitation. Once the problem has been identified we will use a range of manual therapy techniques, stretching, trigger point therapy and rehabilitative exercise to treat the problem. Rehabilitative exercise is vital for post-injury rehabilitation, to improve performance and ensure a swift return to your active lifestyle or sporting activity
- Sports massage is used to assist in keeping muscles supple and toned. Furthermore it helps in maintaining flexibility and helps in improving sporting performance.
- Remedial massage is used to help muscular problems and can be used to reduce pain, assist in joint mobilization and reduce the build-up of scar tissue within muscle.

What Is Sports Therapy?
Wed 27 Sep 2023
"Amazing place for both massage and counselling. Such a welcoming vibe and relaxed atmosphere. It’s impossible to leave without feeling utterly relaxed, whatever treatment you have! I can highly recommend Jeanette for counselling, I felt at ease from the moment I walked in and Jeanette’s approach, understanding and support made me feel like she’d known what was in my head my whole life. The techniques she taught me gave me my confidence and my life back. I always thought counselling was a last resort for those in dire need, but I was so wrong and look forward to my next mindfulness session. Thanks Body & Mind!"
