At our sports injury clinic in Wicklow, we specialise in sports injuries and have experience in treating sports people from the couch to 5k up to elite and Olympic athletes. We can cater your rehabilitation programme to suit your body, your sport, and your participation level.
Among other sports we have experience in:
Sports injuries are generally related to either trauma or overuse.
These are most common in contact sports such as soccer, GAA, rugby, hockey and basketball . Sports injuries can range from ankle sprains, knee cartilage or ligament injuries, to shoulder strains, pulled hamstrings and calf tears. Physiotherapy helps the injury to recover as quickly as possible through hands on therapy and rehabilitation, while also reducing the risk of re-injuring the area when you return.
Unlike other sports that may be prone to traumatic injuries, repetitious sports such as running tend to cause overuse. Training errors, imbalances in your running style, or weaknesses in your core muscles, legs or your feet can cause certain structures to fatigue more quickly, and hence be more prone to injury.
