Sports Therapy

What is Sports Therapy and how can it help me?

We understand that pain can have a significant impact on your life.
Pain can come on gradually, or after a specific incident, and it can affect you no matter what your age, activity level, or lifestyle.
It can prevent you from doing what you want to do, whether that be your general daily activities, work, exercise, or sports, and this can be highly frustrating.
When you’re experiencing pain, this can be because of a problem with either your muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, fascia, nerves, or a combination of these.
Sports Therapy is a skilled profession that exists to help you to firstly, understand why you’re experiencing pain, and secondly, to overcome this pain, allowing you to quickly, and safely, return to living a pain free lifestyle.
This is achieved through an array of holistic treatments, including expert advice, hands on therapy, and exercises to do at home, all tailored towards your specific needs.
At Jonathan Clark Physiotherapy, our Sports Therapy is provided by our Rehabilitation Specialists.

When the time is right, we will identify the potential risks to your injury happening again and put measures in place to stop your injury from recurring.

How long will my problem take to get better?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a quick magical fix for pain or injury, and injuries do tend to recur, which is why we’ve created a Jonathan Clark Physiotherapy recovery journey, which is made up of 8 key stepping stones.
Each stepping stone is designed to support you in understanding your body better, overcoming your problem, building your confidence, and preventing recurrence of your injury in the future.
number one
Diagnosing your problem
number 2
Decreasing your pain and swelling
number 3
Improving your movement and flexibility
number four
Improving your stability and control
number 5
Getting your muscles activating in the right way
Strengthening your muscles
Retraining your goal specific movements
number 8
Building resilience to prevent re-injury

A typical recovery journey through all of these stepping stones can last an average of 6-8 appointments over a 3-to-6-month timescale.

We find this number of appointments offers the best longer-term solution, allowing you to live a confident, active, and pain free life, without the risk of re-injury.
This is why we recommend you tick off all the stepping stones and fully complete your recovery journey with us.
How much will it cost?

Your initial appointment with us will cost £79. Each follow up treatment will cost £59. If you wish to see a Senior Therapist, the appointments will cost £79 and £69 respectively.

We do offer a selection of appointment packages, to help you save on the cost of your Sports Therapy with us.
You are unable to use private medical insurance, or a cash plan policy, to access Sports Therapy with us. Your allowances on your policy can only be used to access Physiotherapy, so if you do have insurance, please book in with a Physiotherapist.
