If you regularly engage in strenuous exercise or physically-demanding sports, you will already know that leading such an active life can also lead to unfortunate injury. Falling awkwardly, overstretching a ligament or muscle, snapping a tendon or repetitive stress injuries are problems that can leave you sat on the sidelines and out of the game for a frustratingly long time.
If you are suffering from a sporting or exercise-related injury, we can help. We offer effective, specialist orthopaedic diagnosis and treatment for all kinds of acute traumas, from tendonitis, strains and sprains, to bone fractures, shin splints and concussions.
Our highly trained orthopaedic specialists, sports physicians and surgeons are renowned experts in their field and can offer you the reassurance and support you need throughout diagnosis, treatment and aftercare. They are complemented by a range of respiratory physicians and neurosurgeons to treat issues that relate to your breathing or nervous system.
In order to facilitate a fast and accurate diagnosis, we have access to a number of rapid, point-of-care imaging technologies, including X-ray, MRI and CT scanners.
After diagnosis, our orthopaedic specialists will be able to suggest a course of action. Treatments could include re-aligning a dislocated shoulder, treating a fractured foot or ankle or repairing knee cartilage tissue. We also offer minimally-invasive keyhole surgery for any type of ligament, including ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction.
Alternatively, non-invasive options such as shockwave therapy may be a solution. This treatment uses shockwaves which can help healing and alleviate the pain of conditions including chronic tendon inflammations in the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, achilles and sole of the foot.
Our team also includes musculoskeletal physiotherapists, strength and conditioning coaches, sports massage therapists and dieticians to help you return to your peak physical fitness and return to the sport you love in as little time as possible. To help support your recovery, we can advise you how to avoid future injuries in the future or assess your balance and alignment with a gait analysis service.
At Bridges Clinic we can help you with a wide range of sports injuries and exercise-related problems.
