Sports injury

Sports injury treatment at the Victoria Chiropractic Clinic

Whether the consequence of trauma or the result of a constant striving for improved performance, sports injuries represent a major frustration to all athletes regardless of ability.

We try to view a sports injury as an opportunity to also work on other aspects of performance such as general athleticism and robustness as well as the individual specifics such as injury-risk profile, physical capabilities, form etc.

We aim to take a pragmatic approach: once a diagnosis has been made, an explanation of the injury will be given along with a plan of treatment and rehabilitation.

A typical rehab programme will contain a series of progressions geared to the sports specific needs of the patient.
