Sports Injuries Treatment Centre

A dedicated sports injury & trauma treatment centre in Dorset for the fast recovery from fractures, muscle, tendon and ligament damage,Sports injuries and injuries from falls or slips.

We use the latest up to date treatments that have been proven by many thousands of hours of research, where there are hundreds of papers written to prove the effectiveness of the treatment ensuring you are safe, recovering quickly and with a better quality of repair.

The treatment uses Low Level Laser therapy, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF); Medical Acupuncture, soft tissue therapies to improve oxygen flow, and Sports Massage.

Other therapy modalities can be used to support the joint during the acute phase, or to increase range of motion, that lost due to the fall or cause of the injury.

Low level Laser Therapy

The lasers are Class 3B and highly powerful in their effectiveness for these types of injury.

It is not necessary to wait until you are out of a plaster cast, the treatment can start as  soon as possible.

Low level Lasers emit light that is receptive to the cells that

are receiving the light. The light is absorbed and converted

to energy. The translate to repair. There is increased cell

proliferation, a reduction in inflammation and pain.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Electromagnetic Field therapy has been demonstrated to be very effective for non-union fractures and can penetrate through plaster, so treatment can start immediately.

There are articles to substantiate the efficacy of Pulsed Electromagnetic field therapy, I have enclosed one:-----http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19371845

Medical Acupuncture

By using Medical Acupuncture, where fine needles are inserted into the muscles just below the skin, the body`s on natural painkillers, endorphins are released. Chemicals from the body`s response to needle insertion can also have an effect to enhance healing. The treatment should not be painful and needles can be placed far away from the injury site and still have a beneficial effect. (This can also be performed for those who are needle-phobic by the use of a very fine laser beam which replaces the needle. Treatment can be discussed with the client at the time.)

Part of the therapy can involve improving the flow of oxygen through the body to further enhance your recovery.

There is free parking available all day with wheelchair access.

FAQs:

What does the treatment entail for fractures.

If the fracture is not in plaster, for example, the collar bone, then the usual treatment is 2 hours of pulsed magnetic field therapy, 20minutes of laser therapy, the area is then held fast with kinesiology taping to support the area so that healing can continue in the enhance state. if the area is plastered it will not affect PEMF, but laser light will not penetrate plaster, but the laser can be used to accelerate the removal of inflammation and swelling. Acupuncture may be used to replace the laser if deemed necessary with the patients permission.

Has the bone mended after treatment? You have to remember that bone is a dynamic substance and that healing occurs over a period of time. Laser and PEMF will accelerate the process, but will remain vulnerable for a while longer, hence the taping. Laser therapy has been seen to accelerate the process by as much as 50% so care much be taken after treatment to allow the healing to continue. The therapy will make the area more comfortable.

How many sessions do I need? This will depend on the type and severity of the injury, the blood supply to the area and how fast your response is. Your therapist will be able to advise.

How frequently do I need to be seen? A single treatment may be sufficient to accelerate the process of healing, but treatments can be as much as daily or twice weekly. It depends on your requirements.  Discuss this with your therapist. You will not be treated more than necessary.

How long is each session? This varies from 45 minutes to three hours. No additional charge is made if you need the longer session. Please advise on making an appointment that you are attending for Sports Injury Treatment.

How soon can I be seen? Normally you can be seen within a couple of days.

Should I see the GP first? There is no need for this, your practitioner is qualified to provide you will full advice. You will not be treated if it is not appropriate.

I live a long way off, is there anywhere I can stay if I need treating for longer than one day? Accommodation can be arranged for you locally.

Please contact me via the contact form or ring during office hours 01258 473148. Advice can be given over the phone. Emails are answered daily including weekends.
