Massage is one of the best injury and rehabilitation techniques going. If you take part in sport of any kind it should be an integral part of your training regime.

What is Sport Rehabilitation?
Sport Rehab helps athletes and non athletes suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the muscle-skeletal system. At my Cardiff clinic I help people of all ages maintain their health and fitness, through a range of different techniques and advice. These can help prevent injury, reduce pain, increase movement ROM and much more. Rehabilitation doesn’t just have to be
What to expect from Sports Rehab?
The first consultation will be a brief talk through your problems and medical history and a physical assessment to identify any problem areas and any predisposing factors to injury and any other health related disorders, including posture and range of motion of joints and tissue. I then will come up with a plan which will be tailored to you. This would be a plan that we will implement in the clinic and then a recovery plan to return you to optimum function and physical activity. You can expect me to integrate advice, and educate through rehab and knowledge.
I am trained to carefully record and protect your personal information, including sensitive information relevant to your condition as part of the treatment session and when moving forward.
What might my treatment include?
Treatment will incorporate evidenced based therapeutic interventions and exercise with the plan being monitored and modified where needed. This could include exercise rehabilitation, graded activity, manual therapy, workplace assessment and modification, massage, taping / bracing and electrotherapy.
Sport Rehabilitators will use a complete approach, considering the whole needs of the individual to allow optimal recovery and placing the patient at the centre of their own care.
What sets Sport Rehabilitators apart?
Sport Rehabilitators have a strong focus on biomechanics, exercise rehabilitation and returning patients to high levels of function.
