Our Clinic

Sports Injuries, Physiotherapy and Massage Clinic

 

Sports Therapy is concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of fitness, regardless of age and ability.

At SPRU, our Sports Injuries, Physiotherapy and Massage Clinic provides professional care to both professional and recreational athletes.

We specialise in the treatment and rehabilitation of sporting injuries, but we also treat musculoskeletal injuries of any origin, whether chronic or occupational in nature.

Paul treated me in a very professional manner with a friendly approach to the therapy where I was able to understand the treatment he was giving me. Thanks to Paul I can competitively play basketball again at the peak of my ability.

Sports Massage Therapy

All of our therapists are experts in the application of Sports Massage. This treatment has numerous benefits and can be used for both healing and injury prevention.

This is achieved through the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Some of the benefits of a Sports Massage are:

  • Improved circulation and removal of metabolic waste
  • Release in muscle tension
  • Restored balance to the musculoskeletal system
  • Enhanced recovery from muscle injuries
  • Assist in mental preparation for sporting participation
I was first seen by Paul at the SPRU clinic after a recurring sport related injury, for which he had given excellent Sports advice and massage. This enabled me to continue my training at this level, free of pain and so far without further injury.
