Sports Team/Club Services

Our therapists at Axis Physiotherapy all come from a strong sporting background, having both competed and provided Physiotherapy at all levels from amateur to professional. As a result of this we understand the needs of a team when it comes to medical treatment both during and after competition.

Pitch Side Physiotherapy: During a match, be it football/rugby/basketball, is when athletes are performing at their highest intensity, and as a result have a higher injury risk. Direct treatment/diagnosis of an injury at the time of occurrence can greatly reduce overall rehab time, as well as prevent any further deterioration of injury. We can offer you a Physiotherapist to provide both pre and post match assistance as well as direct pitch side cover depending on your clubs individual needs. All therapists come with a fully stocked medical bag meaning overall costs for your club are kept to a minimum.

Rehab Clinics: In between competition is where finely tuned athletes hone their fitness and skills! But training sessions are very important, both for progression in your particular field and for rehabilitation of injuries. No one likes to miss an important game or run, so Physiotherapy treatment can be crucial in reducing your time out injured. We can provide your club with a Physiotherapist to attend your training sessions and provide rehab services to meet your clubs specific needs.

Discount Team Rates: A season in sport can be very long and taxing, both on the players themselves and in terms of costs to the clubs, particularly lower level teams who rely on their members fees to sustain themselves. because of this at Axis Physiotherapy we are happy to offer discounted treatment rates to any sports clubs/teams who would like to exclusively send their players to our clinics for Physiotherapy. Please contact us for further details.

Sports Massage Therapy in Axis Physiotherapy?

As a rehabilitation centre, our physiotherapists primarily treat people who are looking for specific treatment that involves special massage services such as trigger point massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage. Our clients typically have an injury or areas of pain, muscle tension or spasm, so our treatments don’t just help you feel better, but actually help you get and stay better while you benefit from our team approach, with a more precise and faster recovery process.

What is sports massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a hands-on treatment that involves manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body (muscle, skin and connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and membranes) to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort and muscle spasm. Massage therapy also promotes health and wellness. It improves the functioning of the circulatory, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems, and helps increase recovery from injury and illness.

Your time is our top priority.

Life doesn’t stop for injury. Our therapists know your time is valuable. Our goal is to get you back to normal as quickly as possible with a personalized program that suits your needs and fits your schedule.

Sports Injuries

At Axis Physiotherapy our therapists come from a range of sporting backgrounds, having either played a certain sport or worked as a treating Physiotherapist from amateur to professional level. Currently our company works alongside numerous sports teams/clubs in fields such as rugby, football, mixed martial arts, running, cricket, basketball, weightlifters and dancing, providing both pitch side care and injury management between competition.

Having this level of experience enables us to have a greater understanding of what causes athletes to injure themselves, particularly longstanding persistent injuries such as hamstring trouble or knee pain following exercise. By performing a thorough biomechanical assessment we can get to the bottom of why you get injuries and correct this through a program of hands on treatment and specific exercises tailored to you as an individual.

At Axis Physiotherapy we know that in the sporting world its results that count, and we aim to ensure each athlete we treat is able to perform to their optimum and return to competitive sport as fast as they can.

Home Physiotherapy Service

At Axis Physiotherapy we offer home physiotherapy services as we understand that some injuries or condition can make it difficult to receive treatment at our clinic. Our objective is to provide home based physiotherapy patients with the same high quality therapy that they would receive in clinic.

Why Get Physio At Home?

We understand that some people may not be able to travel the distance to our clinics yet they still require treatment and assistance from Physiotherapist. People prefer this home physiotherapy service for a number of reasons; often people are too injured, too sick or in too much pain to leave the house whereas in other cases people simply prefer to receive physio treatment at home where they are most comfortable. Physiotherapy at home allows the rest of the family to be involved in the treatment and gain a better understanding of the condition, as well as giving them an opportunity to ask the physio any questions and also learn how they can help out.
