SPORTS INJURIES

Sports injuries are picked up during a sporting activity. The sport can be anything from a recreational jog to high level team sports or Olympic level sports. These injuries can occur at any age and can involve any muscle or joint in the body.

Examples of some common sporting injuries are:

  • Tendon strains (tendinopathy) – eg shoulder, elbow, knee, achilles
  • Muscle strains/tears – eg hamstring, quads, calf
  • Ligament strains/tears – eg cruciate ligaments in knee, collateral ligaments knee, ankle, wrist, thumbs, fingers
  • Cartilage damage or tear – eg knee, shoulder, hip
  • Back pain
  • Stress fractures eg shin, toes, pelvis
  • Gait problems
  • Concussion

Why Ulster Sports Medicine Clinic

As a Sports Medicine Doctor I feel I am ideally placed to take a detailed history of what has happened, perform an examination, refer for investigations if appropriate, give an accurate diagnosis and plan treatment. This is to allow you to return quickly and safely to your sport and to minimise the chances of the injury recurring again in the future.

At the Ulster Sports Medicine Clinic you will have an assessment to determine if you could benefit from an injection. I have many years experience in giving joint and soft tissue injections.

I use these injections on a daily basis as part of an overall treatment programme but they are only appropriate for specific conditions. They are never essential and if you have a dislike of injections or a needle phobia there are always other non-injection options.

When given appropriately, by an experienced practitioner, injections can dramatically speed up your recovery. From years of experience, I have also developed close links with highly qualified Chartered Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Joint Injections and Orthopaedic Surgeons who I can directly refer you to.
