Sports injury and prevention

There are two categories of sports injury; acute traumatic injuries such as a sprained ankle or calf tear and overuse injuries such as tendonitis, Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow and shoulder impingement.

Here at The Brookdale Clinic our experienced Physiotherapists can help you with problems in both these areas.  We work closely with top orthopaedic surgeons and sports injury doctors.
