Sports Injury Diagnosis
As a sports injury clinic we offer a specific sports injury diagnosis service. Our sports injury therapist will identify the injury, the cause and aggravating activities. By specifically identifying the sports injury early on precautionary measures can be taken to avoid serious and permanent injuries.
Our sports injury therapists specialise in techniques using modern myofascial release methods to treat and prevent any re-occurrences. Studies have shown that myofascial release is proving to be an effective method of treating sports injuries and injury prevention.
The techniques used by our physical therapists do not place any stress on the tissues or joints, therefore reducing any recovery period from the treatment. Instead the client will feel immediate relaxation, improved flexibility and pain relief to the injured area. The connective tissue surrounding the muscle or tendon can become very stressed not allowing the muscle or tendon to glide. Without treating the fascia the risk of re-injury is greater. There are many articles online promoting the use of foam rollers to treat and prevent sports injuries. We do endorse these products but they should be used correctly but only after painful restrictions have been manipulated gently through hands on techniques as employed by our sports therapists here in Dun Laoghaire.
Sports Injury Therapy Treatment

Our sports injury therapy can provide pain relief and help reduce inflammation. This can improve the speed of recovery from the sports injury. Aiming not only to provide short-term pain relief our specialist sports therapist focuses on preventing an injury reoccurrence.
