Sports Therapy in Kenilworth
Based in the beautiful castle town of Kenilworth our Sports Therapy treatments are designed to address the underlying causes of pain and injury.
Our specialised hands-on techniques are ideal if you suffer from an injury, or muscular problems, Sports Therapists are experts in Musculoskeletal Pain and Injury.
What is sports therapy?
Located in Kenilworth, our team of Sports Therapists are highly skilled in addressing musculo-skeletal pain and injuries. Their comprehensive training goes beyond a mere grasp of the muscular system – they possess the expertise to assess, treat, and fortify this intricate system. This implies that when you consult a Sports Therapist, you’re tapping into a profound understanding of the body’s mechanics and effective pain correction methods.
Collaborating seamlessly with Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists create a dynamic partnership. Consider the scenario of someone recovering from a hip replacement. Following surgery, Physiotherapy provides an excellent starting point, given their close collaboration with surgeons in medical settings, making them ideally suited for initial post-operative rehabilitation stages.
However, once these foundational stages are complete and an individual aspires to re-engage with work or sports, the next phase of rehabilitation finds its perfect match in the expertise of a Sports Therapist.
Sports Therapists excel at diagnosing various forms of bodily discomfort, encompassing Back Pain, Headaches, Shoulder Pain, and Osteoarthritis. Their hands-on approach seamlessly blends Sports Massage, Physiotherapy-style assessments, and personalised exercises. It is this holistic approach that consistently gains exceptional results, making Sports Therapists an indispensable asset in your journey towards recovery and optimal well-being.
Sports Therapists are regulated by the CNHC a government based register of complimentary health professionals.
What makes us different?
In Kenilworth, our team comprises Ian and Gina – both accomplished Sports Therapists. Notably, their expertise extends beyond their qualifications in Sports Therapy; they possess degrees in Sports Science, granting them a unique perspective on muscular pain and injury.
Their foundation in Sports Science equips them with profound insights into Biomechanics – the specialism that assesses and rehabilitates the intricate dynamics of muscle coordination and bodily movement.
When addressing concerns like shoulder pain, their approach is comprehensive. They analyse not only the specific area of discomfort but also the intricate interplay of muscles. This involves assessing the strength, weakness, and the balance of muscle engagement. Their biomechanical knowledge allows them to understand how these factors contribute to issues across the body.
For instance, if shoulder muscles are underdeveloped, they might cause an overworking of the neck muscles, potentially triggering headaches. Similarly, weakened shoulder muscles can lead to excessive strain on the arms, creating symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Golfers and Tennis Elbow.
Hence, recognising the significance of muscle interactions becomes pivotal in getting to the root cause of your pain or injury. At our Kenilworth location, Ian and Gina’s multidisciplinary expertise ensures a thorough and holistic approach to resolving your issues, going beyond the surface to address the root causes.
Do you just work with sports injuries?
Located in Kenilworth, our Sports Therapists possess unparalleled expertise in addressing sports injuries, drawing from an extensive comprehension of the intricacies of the muscular system. However, this profound knowledge extends beyond sports injuries and encompasses a wide range of muscle and joint problems.
Imagine you’re an avid runner dealing with recurrent ankle sprains stemming from weak ankles. While we can certainly assess and address the immediate ankle issue, we recognise that the pain’s origins might lie elsewhere. At Reinge Clinic, our Sports Science foundation empowers us to delve deeper. We can meticulously assess your running gait to understand how your muscles are working while you run, enabling us to modify your gait and mitigate the risk of recurrent ankle sprains.
Now, envision the same client encountering osteoarthritis in the knee, a condition often rooted in ankle and foot problems. A skilled Sports Therapist is poised to provide effective treatment for osteoarthritis, while also tailoring rehabilitation exercises to ensure you can continue to run.
In our Kenilworth setting, we focus not only on recovery but also on facilitating a swift return to your passion, such as running or your job, which may be physical in nature.
Frequently Asked Questions about Sports Therapy in Kenilworth
Absolutely not, all our appointments can be booked directly with us by calling or emailing us. There is no need to contact your GP.
All our Sports Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long.
Unlike many of our competitors all of our follow up appointments are also 50 minutes long.
Having 50 minutes means that we can reassess your condition at every appointment.
This allows us to check that the exercises are doing what we need and you are progressing.
Each follow up will also involve hands on work in the form of massage or soft tissue techniques and we will also check and change exercises at every appointment session.
We don’t feel we can do that effectively in less that 50minutes, so all our appointments last 50 minutes.
Depending on the area that needs to be assessed, we would ask you to bring a pair of shortish shorts or a strappy top.
This allows us to see as much as possible, so we can effectively assess you.
Our assessments often involve taking measurements and watching how muscles interact, so the ability to see muscles is very useful.
Physiotherapists are trained in medical conditions, often working in hospitals with Stroke, arthritis and neurological conditions.
Sports Therapists are specialists in Musculoskeletal pain and injury, training only in this area. Meaning they aren’t trained in medical conditions. However, here at the Reinge Clinic, Ian is a Sports Therapist, but also a fully trained Physiotherapist. Gina is a Sports Therapist, but also has an Exercise Physiologist, giving you the best of both worlds. We are specialists in Muscular pain, with the understanding and experience of dealing with medical conditions.
Essentially in Private practice, there is little difference between a Sports Therapist and a Physiotherapist, other than the Sports Therapist may give a more hands on treatment.
Sports Therapy is rarely a painful treatment.
Assessing an injury or a sore joint can be painful, but allows us to understand where the pain is.
Sports Therapists use Sports Massage techniques within their treatments and these can sometimes be uncomfortable.
We will always ask you for feedback on pain so we can modify our hands on work. If things are painful, please let us know so we can modify our assessments or treatments.
Sports Massage is a treatment based on loosening tight muscles, it is a deep level of massage and is excellent at maintaining a healthy body. However Sports Massage Therapists aren’t trained in assessment and treatment of pain and injury. For that you need to see a Sports Therapist or Physiotherapist.
You can book using our online booking system. Or you can email us or call us directly.
We don’t use receptionists, so when you call or email you get directly either Ian or Gina, who can answer any questions you may have about your condition, prior to making a booking.
Please contact us before you book in and let us know that you would like to use your Private Insurance.
Many insurance companies do not cover Sports Therapy treatments, however, if you would like to use your insurance, we can ensure you are booked with Ian. He is also a Chartered Physiotherapist and can work with most insurance companies.
