Sports Injury Treatment in Worthing, Sussex
Are you looking for a Sports Injury Clinic in Sussex?
The human body is a marvel of engineering, finely tuned to support, protect, and facilitate movement. Engaging in sports, however, can sometimes push our bodies to their limits, leading to injuries, fatigue, diminished performance, and prolonged recovery times. At Broadwater Osteopathic Practice, we are dedicated to helping you get back in the game, and our experienced team is here to assess the root causes of your sports-related issues.
Understanding the Why: Sports injuries often have underlying factors that need addressing. We go beyond treating the symptoms to identify structural, muscular, or postural issues that may be causing or perpetuating your problems. Our comprehensive approach involves:
Structural Assessment: We thoroughly examine your bones, joints, muscles, and posture to pinpoint any faults or imbalances.
Posture Correction: Poor posture, whether in everyday life or during sports activities, can lead to strain and injuries. We provide guidance on improving your posture.
Injury Prevention: Our goal is not only to help you recover but also to prevent future injuries by addressing root causes.
Types of Sports Injuries We Treat
Different sports can lead to various types of injuries. We see patients with a wide range of problems including:
Skiing Injuries: Such as muscle sprains and groin strains.
Football Injuries: Knee and hip muscle and joint pains
Aerobic Dance Injuries: Foot injuries, shin splints, and chronic calf problems.
Racquet Sport Injuries: Achilles pain and tendon strains are common among older runners.
Who Should You Consult?
Your first point of contact should be one of our osteopaths, who will conduct an initial assessment and create a personalised treatment plan. Depending on your specific needs, they may recommend incorporating sports massage or acupuncture into your plan for added benefit.
What to Expect in Treatment?
We focus on reducing inflammation and swelling in the early stages of treatment. This may involve massage and osteopathic interventions. We also employ electrotherapy equipment like ultrasound to expedite recovery. Strengthening and flexibility exercises are an integral part of your rehabilitation plan, tailored to your condition and activity level.
Beyond treatment, our osteopaths and wellbeing team provide invaluable advice to facilitate your recovery. This includes exercises specific to your condition, which may evolve as you progress. We understand that each sport has its unique demands, and we will guide you accordingly.

When to Seek Medical Help
If your injury is severely painful, traumatic, or causes rapid swelling, it’s crucial to consider immediate medical assistance, such as a visit to the A&E department, to rule out fractures or dislocations. For less severe injuries, early intervention is key. We recommend using ice packs and arnica to reduce swelling and bruising, along with rest, compression, and elevation of the affected area.
