Sports Injuries London is a very busy, well established sports injury medical practice situated in the heart of Muswell Hill, North London.
We specialise in the treatment of sports injuries using advanced electrotherapy such as ultrasound therapy and low level laser therapy. This is a two tier process, as patients are usually treated with electrotherapy and then given unique tailor made specialised exercises to address the overall cause, and help prevent the problem from occurring again.
We have over 30 years of experience prescribing specialised exercise programmes concentrating on the physiology of your injury.
The exercise programmes are designed to strengthen and re-train your body safely, while rebalancing you, and addressing any weakness or issues present. This not only succeeds by preventing injury from re-occurring, but also helps promote musculo-skeletal strength for your future.
This is significant if you are a little older as it will not only protect you but also help to minimise any arthritic symptoms possibly in your future, and can be done at any stage in your life.
Low level laser therapy or photobiomodulation therapy promotes tissue repair and cell regeneration. This can help accelerate your recovery by up to 50% and in turn significantly reduces inflammation and pain.
Ultrasound therapy is known to significantly reduce inflammation associated with sports injuries and by doing so decreases pain. Swelling is reduced and scar tissue is softened and remoulded, aiding faster recovery.
The thermal effects of ultrasound therapy increase circulation and helps promote collagen production, quickly restoring function. The combination of ultrasound therapy and LLLT are used to treat problems such as calcification, calcific tendonitis and difficult tendonitis with great efficacy.
