Sport injuries & Massage

Sports and Deep tissue massage at DB fitness & injury clinic is not just for the elite athlete but may be beneficial for everyone.

This type of massage is designed to focus on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas.

Sports and Deep Tissue Massage is beneficial for:

  • areas of the body that have been overworked through sporting or occupational activities
  • chronic tight tissues due to sustained incorrect postures
  • injury rehabilitation, strains and tears of muscles due to exercise or sport
  • fatigue or lactic acid building up in muscles
  • chronic muscular pain
  • pre-race preparation or post competition recovery

At DB fitness & injury clinic we have therapists and Pilates instructors who are experts in musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.


Our aim is to get you fit and back to the sport you love with the minimum time out of the game.

Sports injuries fall into two categories, those of traumatic origin or overuse injuries, all of which happen during participation in sport. Common traumatic sports injuries include ankle sprains, knee ligaments sprains, cartilage tears, muscle tears, joint dislocations and fractures of the bone.
We all know that after a tough session you might feel sore the day after (and even the day after that). However, this delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) resolves fully after 2-3 days. If you have a niggle that does not resolve within this time frame, you may be developing an overuse injury. Common overuse sports injuries include tendinitis, shin pain, muscle strains, IT band syndrome and knee pain.

All our Chartered Physiotherapists have worked with sports teams, both in the clinic setting and pitch-side, and are very experienced in accurate diagnosis and rehabilitation.
We understand that when you have a sports injury, it’s a very personal thing. We assure you that we will do everything we can to help you play that important final, get through that long-awaited marathon or get to the 18th hole.



With our case management approach to all our patients, if there are any queries during your massage, they will be available to answer all your questions.
