Who are you and where are you based?

What are the most common sports related injuries you see?

The most common sports injury that we see are ligament injuries to the knee closely followed by ankle sprains




What's your top tip for reducing the risk of injury?

The tips for reducing your injury risk is: wear suitable/correct footwear for the sport, warm up properly and use good technique 


Are there any ways people can speed up their recovery?  

The rate of recovery is fairly standard for all of us but you can improve the conditions for healing by RICE (rest, ice compression and elevation) and then regaining the full range of mobility in the part affected. Return to activity should be graduated


What should people look for when choosing a treatment provider?

Choose a practitioner with a good general and sports injury experience.
