Sports Therapy in Leamington Spa

Based just a 6 minute drive from the Spa town of Leamington, our Sports Therapy treatments aim to get to the root causes of pain and injuries.

Our specialist, hands on techniques are perfect whether you have a sporting injury, or a more general muscular pain.

What is sports therapy?

Sports Therapists stand as true experts in the area of musculo-skeletal pain and injury. Their training encompasses not only a comprehensive understanding of the muscular system but also the science of assessing, treating, and training it. This ensures that when you book to see a  Sports Therapist, you’re entering a space where the intricate workings of the body are deeply comprehended, and effective solutions are at hand.

Sports Therapists operate seamlessly alongside Physiotherapists, offering a dynamic collaboration. Imagine a scenario where spinal surgery has taken place – here, Physiotherapy is the initial and ideal choice for post-operative care. With their hospital experience and adeptness at early-stage rehabilitation, Physiotherapists excel in this phase. However, as the journey progresses and the desire to return to work or sports, the need for deeper functional rehabilitation sits perfectly with the Sports Therapist’s skill set.

The expertise of Sports Therapists extends to the assessment of pain across the body’s spectrum – whether  it is a Sporting Injury, or Back Pain, Headaches or  Shoulder Pain for instance.  Embracing a hands-on approach, Sports Therapists embody a harmonious blend of Sports Massage techniques, Physiotherapy assessments, and Personal Trainer rehabilitation. This amalgamation of skills is the very reason behind their remarkable track record of delivering exceptional results. 

Sports Therapists are regulated by the CNHC, a government based register of complimentary health professionals, and in the vibrant location of Leamington Spa, our Sports Therapists are committed to ushering you towards a journey of healing, rejuvenation, and peak performance.

What makes us different?

In the vibrant realm  of Leamington Spa, meet Ian and Gina – both accomplished Sports Therapists. Beyond their credentials in Sports Therapy, they boast Sports Science degrees. Their grounding in Sports Science equips them with a profound understanding of biomechanics, the science that unravels the intricate interplay of how muscles collaborate to create movement, and making them unique in the local area.

Imagine you are grappling with knee pain. At The Reinge Clinic, it’s not just about assessing the knee, it’s about understanding the interaction of  the muscles and joints around the knee that might be contributing to that  pain. In order to fully understand where the pain originates, they will assess your pelvis position, your foot movements, even how your shoulders interact the grand scheme of movement. This multifaceted analysis is why they are unique in the Leamington Spa area and are able to efficiently pinpoint the root cause of your pain.

Do you just work with sports injuries?

Sports Therapists are great at treating Sporting Injuries, because of their in depth knowledge of how the muscular systems work. But, this knowledge means they can also treat any muscular or joint problem, not just sports injuries. 

Let’s imagine you are a recreational tennis player in Leamington Spa and have elbow pain. We can assess and treat the “tennis elbow” but this pain came from somewhere. So here at The Reinge Clinic, because of our Sports Science knowledge we can check the grip size for your racket, we can check the strength and muscle interactions of your whole shoulder to work out where the tennis elbow came from. 

Now, let’s say that same Leamington Spa based client got a Frozen Shoulder, the Sports Therapist can also treat the Frozen Shoulder and then tailor their rehabilitation exercises to ensure that they get strong enough to get back on the tennis court as soon as possible. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Sports Therapy in Leamington Spa

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.
