Sports Injury Leeds

Sporting injuries such as ‘pulled muscles’ or aching joints can severely reduce your performance and make playing your favourite sport uncomfortable and un-enjoyable.  The temptation is to hope the injury will go away if you ‘play through it’,  but this can lead to the condition becoming much worse.


Causes & aggravating factors of injuries

  • Inadequate training or fitness level for event
  • Not warming up well enough – please note that static stretching has been shown to be detrimental to your performance
  • Not stretching or cooling down adequately after an event.
  • Playing while ‘carrying’ an injury
  • Incorrect technique EG: using your back while weight training your upper limbs.
  • Inadequate recovery programme from previous injury (including lack of rehabilitative exercises).
  • Underlying muscle imbalance.
  • Altered running style due to ‘flat feet’.
  • Underlying joint dysfunction EG: pelvic, Sacro-iliac, lower back or hip joint restriction can cause persistent hamstring and groin muscle strain.

Our chiropractors in Leeds are trained in Sacro-occipital Technique (SOT), a popular, post graduate whole body system of diagnosis and treatment, and have years of experience in dealing with all types of injuries.  We also work alongside a masseur and podiatrist.  This makes us ideally suited to diagnose and address the above mentioned causes and treat the injury.  We can also design a rehabilitative programme to help you recover and go back to playing your sport in confidence.
