Sports Injury

How we’ll recover from a fall is not coincidence. Neck pain after horseback riding? It’s not purely down to body mechanics and functional movement either. Muscle sprains and strains, small tears in soft tissue, inflammation and pain. Polo injuries and whether they’re followed by neck pain, for example, is something we can change now. Low back pain or knee pain, is totally dependent on our body responses. Our team of specialists include physicians, surgeons, orthopaedic consultants and physical therapists. We look after effects of stress and lifestyle on body health.

So if your not sure if you need an MRI or and X-Ray we’ll tell you. Also, we’ll help you decide on your care pathway. Back pain and neck pain can be secondary to a snowboarding injury.
