Sports injuries

It’s great to get physical, but sometimes you might overdo it. We’ve seen every kind of sports injury, including

  • ACL injuries
  • AC joint dislocations
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Groin sprains

Functional & sport specific rehabilitation

This means rehabilitating muscle imbalances and strengthening weaknesses that have occurred during everyday activities.

Functional movement screening

The repetitive nature of modern life and the physical demands of most sports can lead to certain areas in the body becoming tight and other areas ‘weak’. These can eventually lead to pain, breakdown of tissues and chronic overuse injuries.

Post-operative rehabilitation

Our aim is to relieve pain, increase your range of motion and correct any movement dysfunction created pre-surgery. Also, by improving muscle strength and minimising the risk of re-injury, we will increase your confidence and improve your quality of life.

This is what we aim to achieve after your operation

  • Decrease of pain and swelling
  • Restore and maintain range of motion
  • Increase muscle strength
  • Improve mobility
  • Increase independence
  • Re-educate normal muscle patterning
  • Increase confidence in activities of normal living
  • Progress you back to full activity – including sports

Sports massage in Southport & Chorley

A deep sports massage aims to improve circulation, eliminate build-up of lactic acids and prevent accumulated stiffness from training or working repetitively. Sports massage is not just for sports people; it is for anyone who desires a deep tissue massage.

Sports massage can effectively break down minor injuries and lesions that occur due to over-exertion and/or over use of muscles. Sports massage is often used in combination with other physiotherapy techniques as part of your recovery.

Summit's sports massage aims to

  • Improve circulation and lymph flow
  • Bring back your ‘feel good’ factor
  • Reduce muscle tension and soreness
  • Improve flexibility
  • Relieve pain

Biomechanics is a specialist field that examines the interaction of joints, ligaments, tendon and muscle in relation to body movement and the physical world around us. A small change in structure, function or load of the body can lead to tissue break down and pain.

Following a complete assessment in Southport & Chorley of the symptomatic area and once the affected structures are identified, an appropriate custom-made shoe insole will be prescribed to address your needs.
