Sports Injuries

What we do

The Abington Clinic offers diagnosis, treatment, prevention, rehabilitation and management of sports-related injuries and musculoskeletal problems. At our specialist sports injuries clinic in Northampton, we have the expertise and commitment to treat your sports injury, whilst advising and guiding you through a comprehensive rehabilitation programme, which has been designed to meet your particular needs.

At The Abington Clinic, we review and treat each sports injury case on an individual basis in order to help overcome and correct the problem areas quickly and effectively, so that we can restore you to optimal health and help to prevent further injuries.

What we treat

We all know that exercise is good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices or improper equipment or footwear, lack of conditioning or poor nutrition can cause injury. Plus, some people get hurt simply because they are not in shape and a lack of warm up or stretching before exercise can also lead to injury.

Although virtually any part of your body can be injured during sports and exercise, the term sports injury tends to cover injuries to the soft tissue and musculoskeletal system, which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and associated tissues like cartilage.

The most common sports injuries and ailments that our therapists encounter and can successfully treat include:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Sprains and strains- particularly twisted ankles
  • Knee injuries
  • Muscle tears
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Shin splints
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Frozen shoulder

The benefits

At our specialist sports injury clinic, we direct management of your injury towards repair and recovery, as well as carefully looking into factors which may prevent recurrence of the injury. This may include addressing incorrect foot and lower limb biomechanics and sometime it is not unusual for even small misalignments to be the underlying cause of a problem.

Some injuries may require a short-term course of pain relief, accompanied by a programme of functional restoration with physiotherapy. For other injuries it may be useful to perform local injections, for example injections of local anaesthetic and anti-inflammatories in tennis elbow.

At The Abington Clinic we are able to provide you with a multi-disciplinary approach to your sports injury, whether this is treatment with a sports physician, physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor or podiatrist.

We are also able to offer complementary therapies including psychology or traditional acupuncture.

What you can expect after your sports injury treatment?

After your sports injury treatment and therapy at The Abington Clinic, you can expect to feel much better, stronger and in most cases are able to return to a satisfying level of physical activity afterwards. Plus, as part of your treatment we use our specialist expertise and training to help and advise you on how to recognise and prevent similar type injuries in the future.

Sports injury treatment prices

As we deal with people and their injuries on an individual basis, no course of treatment or therapy is ever the same. As a result, prices can vary depending upon the nature of your injury and the course of treatment or therapy that is followed.

Once we have had an opportunity to assess and review your case and before beginning any treatment, we will always advise you of the type of costs that you can expect. Only when you are 100% happy will we start to treat your injury and then manage your successful recovery and rehabilitation.
