A further article titled, “Keep on running”, discusses how trigger point needling is becoming increasingly popular in the sporting world due to the rapid effect it has on pain arising from tense muscles and myofascial tissue.

Physiotherapy & Sporting Injuries

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio are fast approaching, with the opening ceremony taking place on Saturday 6th August. As we have come to expect, there are sure to be many wonderful sporting moments, outstanding achievements and records broken. You may already know that physiotherapy plays a vital role in keeping elite athletes fit to perform or help them recover from injury, but did you know that physiotherapy can help recreational sportspeople too? A 2013 survey for BBC Radio 5 Live revealed that, as a direct result of the London 2012 Olympics, 20% of people were inspired to take up or increase their participation in sport. This is good news, of course, but it could also mean an increase in sports-related injuries. Sports physiotherapists have specific knowledge and experience that can deal with acute, chronic or over-use injuries. Acupuncture can also aid recovery following a sporting injury. A variety of techniques can be effectively used to stimulate the body to aid recovery and ease pain. Julie Iveson, the senior physiotherapist and acupuncturist at The Iveson Clinic, has a particular interest in all forms of sports injuries as she was a successful gymnast and competed internationally in the late 1970s and early 80s. Here is Julie performing at The British Championships. So if you need help with an injury or would like some advice to prevent sporting injuries, please give us a call on 01787 374964....
