Your Sports Therapy Appointments

If you are a new patient at the Hardwicke and Quedgeley Chiropractic Clinic, you may need a sports therapy consultation lasting between 45-60 minutes. Alternatively, you may be referred from your Chiropractor for a specific treatment or a course of rehabilitation sessions.

Our Sports Therapist will undertake an assessment and examination before starting a course of treatment with you.  We have private changing facilities and gowns, but if you are unsure about what to wear or bring with you please speak to our staff.

Depending on the stage of injury, a course of 30 minute treatments will then be prescribed to suit your individual presentation and circumstance. Management of your injury may also include a rehabilitation exercise plan, which will be designed to:

  • Increase healing, strength and restore flexibility
  • Return to functional activities and prevent reoccurrences
  • Sports specific training and patient education
