Football

Whatever position you play, and whatever the level you play at football involves kicking, sudden changes in direction, short sprints and decelerations, jumping and throwing. Injury can ensue from poor biomechanics, muscle tightness and weakness and fatigue towards the end of games. In addition, football is a contact sport and sudden trauma can lead to injuries.

Common football injuries include knee cartilage tears, minor ligament sprains, cruciate ligament tears and hamstring injuries.

Prompt diagnosis leads to the minimum possible time on the sidelines. Our former physiotherapy partner is Head Physiotherapist at Nottingham Forest Football Club and our clinicians have extensive experience treating and rehabilitating these injuries in both professional game with Birmingham City and in amateur  players.
