What is Sports Injury Treatment?
Sports therapy specialises in the treatment, rehabilitation and further prevention of injuries and complaints sustained during sporting activities.
Sports Injuries that appear during any sporty activity differ from everyday injuries due to the greater stress put on muscles, joints and bones through participation in certain sports. The most common injuries associated with sports include ligament sprains, strains, tears, joint injuries and overuse injuries.
Injuries can be acute, chronic or just a niggle that refuses to disappear. Our therapists have the skills, knowledge and experience to get you back on track as soon as is physically possible.
If you have endured a sports injury, don’t give a second thought to making an appointment with our qualified sports physiotherapists in Taunton. Fill out the contact form and we will get back to you shortly.
About Sports Injury Treatment
We treat all abilities, from elite athletes to anyone involved in recreational activities, whether competitively or for leisure; we treat all ages, from children at school to the retired.
Our Sports Therapists will assess and treat the cause of your injury, allowing you to build the strength, mobility, balance and coordination required to return to your sport pain-free and to help prevent further injury.
The priority is to get you back to health as soon as possible. Therefore, our therapists will take a full assessment of your injury, get to the potential cause and devise a thorough and appropriate treatment plan based on their findings to enable a full, speedy recovery.
Rehabilitation can begin once a firm diagnosis has been made. This may involve hands-on treatment to ease any stiffness and pain, allowing you to move better by removing strain from the overloaded area.
Making a full recovery requires commitment and may involve strength and control exercises for you to do at home. We can also offer advice and make recommendations on appropriate warm-up and cool-down exercises before and after your sport.

When should I consider getting a sports massage in Taunton?
Sports massage is beneficial at various stages of your sports-related injury. This includes –
- It helps during the acute phase immediately after the injury to reduce swelling and pain.
- It can aid in the rehabilitation process by promoting tissue healing and preventing scar tissue formation.
- It can also be beneficial for maintenance and injury prevention, as regular sessions can address muscular imbalances and optimize athletic performance.
How long is an appointment?
We like to allow 60 minutes for the first appointment, typically follow up’s are 45 minutes.
How does sports injury massage differ from regular massage?
Sports injury massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that focuses on treating and preventing sports-related injuries. It differs from regular massage in that it specifically targets muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues affected by sports activities. The techniques used are often more vigorous and may include stretching, deep tissue work, and other modalities to address specific issues related to sports injuries.
How many treatments will I need?
This really does depend on the severity of the injury and how long you have been suffering. Rest assured that our therapists will get you back to your sport as quickly as possible.
