Many people in London enjoy participating in sports, whether it be a casual game of football, golf at a weekend, running, marathons, tri-athlon events, tennis, skiing, badminton, basketball, rugby, rowing down the thames or mountain biking. But if the worst should ever happen and you find yourself out of the game because of a sports injury then you should speak to the London Sports Injury specialists here in Putney.
Physiotherapy is vital after injury, the sooner you get treatment the quicker you will recover. During the initial inflammatory phase (24-48 hours) physiotherapy treatment modalities will reduce damage caused. After this you must start trying to move the injured area to make sure that the nerve muscle connection is optimised (proprioception)..
