  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Arthritic pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures

Treatment options:

Our initial consultation consists of a detailed assessment to provide you with a working diagnosis and effective treatment. We ensure you have a good understanding of your injury and condition. We help you not only recover but be able to minimise the risk of the same injury reoccurring.

Treatment can range from:

  • Manual therapy, massage, mobilisation with movement
  • Kinesiology taping
  • Gait and postural analysis
  • Corrective exercises and rehabilitation

We will work with you every step of the way of your recovery journey and guide you when to seek further medical help from your GP or orthopaedic input.

ACL Rehabilitation

The anterior cruciate ligament or ACL is the most commonly injured ligament in the knee. The most common mechanism is that of a sudden pivoting or cutting maneuver during sporting activity, which is commonly seen in football, basketball and soccer.

Common symptoms after ACL tear?

  • A “pop” in the knee at the time of injury
  • Swelling of the knee
  • Instability or giving way of the knee

Depending on the grade of ACL injury, the patient’s age, and level of athleticism, non-operative or surgical treatments may be recommended. Special considerations need to be taken with children due to location of growth plates.

Treatment and rehabilitation

The goal of treatment and rehabilitation is to improve knee stability and ability to successfully do functional activities and successfully return to sports with no concerns. Physiotherapy input is crucial to achieve this, whether patient has surgery or is a candidate for conservative management.

Poorly managed ACL injury can result in reoccurring instability or giving way of the knee. This not only affects a person’s functional activities, ability to play sports and quality of life. Reoccurring giving way can affect the cartilage and increase the incidence of osteoarthritis in the knee.

Why choose athletic approach physiotherapy for ACL rehab?

You will be working directly with myself. I am extremely passionate about helping ACL patients return to Sports and activities they love. I have led the ACL rehab classes in my NHS role for the past 5 years and in my private clinic. During this period I have worked with a large number of adolescents and adults from early stages of their ACL injury, to following surgery and successfully returning to Sports.

I have a background in Sport and Exercise Science, and 10 years experience of working as a strength and conditioning coach. My rehabilitation skills is a real strength.

Our clinic facility is based in a gym, which allows us to fully get our clients to peak conditioning and successfully recover from ACL injury with no concerns.
