What is sports medicine?

Are you wondering if sports medicine is the right treatment for you? Sports medicine is an umbrella term used to group together a few different branches of healthcare to better provide for those who are suffering from or wanting to prevent sports-related injuries. Under sports medicine, there is a wide range of different areas of healthcare geared towards healing and preventing injury from exercise. We offer a range of sports treatments including physiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, osteopathy surgery, testing and shockwave therapy.
