Our approach to a sporting injury and joint pain will depend on the area injured and the nature of the injury.
We find that most injuries are due to impact such as falls, which compresses the area of injury.
Though some are what we call distraction injuries for example, spraining an ankle, or being dragged by your horse because you didn't let go of the reins after falling off. Distraction injuries cause sprains because joints are stretched beyond their normal tolerance.
We will take a detailed history of the injury in order to fully understand the effect this incident has had on your anatomy. Sometimes the injury will have been some time ago, so there will then be overlying compensations which your body has made over time. Our detailed examination will identify which of your joints have been impacted or distracted and the the effect this has had on the soft tissues which support those joints.
