Sports Medicine

Sports Doctors specialise in the non-surgical management of sport and musculoskeletal problems.

The vast majority of these injuries do not require surgery and our sports doctor is perfectly placed to offer and oversee the latest, evidenced based care for these problems.

Our Sports Doctor offers a global overview of your condition. He provides an expert assessment of your problem providing a diagnosis and determines the most appropriate management plan and guides you to the best possible recovery.  He is highly trained in ultrasound imaging as both a diagnostic test and as an adjunct for providing joint and soft tissue injections.

 

Why should you see a Sports Doctor?
 

To get an expert overview of your condition. Muscle and joint pain can often mimic other medical conditions not related to the musculoskeletal system.

To confirm the correct diagnosis and correct path of treatment. He can liaise with other members of the team to ensure the latest, research-based care is being offered.

If you have had treatment previously but your condition is not improving.

The sports doctor is the only person that can provide on-site ultrasound imaging and therapeutic injections. If you feel you need a scan to clarify your problem or an injection to aid recovery – a sports doctor can assess, advise and provide this if it right for you.

If you need onward referral for external imaging like MRI and CT or need to see a different specialist like a Surgeon or Rheumatologist.
