Sports Injuries Therapy Dublin

1Sports people, from the GAA fanatic to the casual road-bowler are very familiar with the strains and sprains associated with their particular sport.

Some of these include:

  • Recurring hamstring problems
  • Calf strains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Runner’s and jumper’s knee
  • Groin strain
  • Tennis and golfers elbow
  • Rotator cuff problems.

These and many more sports injuries are diagnosed and treated at my clinic daily.

 2The Sports Injury clinic coincides with the Physical Therapy Clinic as regards diagnosis, treatment and maintenance programs.

The emphasis is placed upon soft tissue manipulation, deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release and neuromuscular techniques. We also use electrotherapy in the form of faradic and ultrasound to form part of the treatment when required. A rehabilitation program is essential.

As Sports Therapists, we often get players in complaining of consistently tearing the same muscle year after year. Rehab takes over their winter months, but the same thing happens every season. I have found Craniosacral Therapy combined with Physical Therapy excellent in preventing this. Using the Fascial Unwinding Techniques of CST, all tissue memory stored in the muscle as a trauma is removed. The spasm in the fascia covering the muscle is released and the scar tissue dealt with.

The player can then rehab the muscle through weight training on a blank canvas.
