Scoliosis is where the spine twists and curves to the side. It can affect people of any age, from babies to adults, but most often starts in children aged 10 to 15. At Sport and Spinal Physiotherapy we treat patients with scoliosis using the Schroth method. Liz Atha is a trained Schroth best practice practitioner.

Joint pain

There are many causes of joint pain within the human body. Joints are where bone meets bone. Damage to this area due to injury or a degenerative disease can cause mass amounts of pain and can be extremely disabling. An assessment from one of our specialised physiotherapists will underline the cause of the pain and the symptoms being experienced.

Muscle injuries

Muscle injuries are mainly associated with sports participants, but all individuals are susceptible to them. With the heavy demands of an active occupation or a heavy work load at the gym the physiotherapists at Sport and Spinal physio specialise in the rehabilitation of all different grades of muscles injuries from slight tears to full ruptures.

Strains and sprains

Strains and sprains are one of the most common injuries in the sports related arena. A strain is when the muscle is taken beyond its acting capabilities which force the muscles fibres to stretch or even tear. Sprains occur when the ligaments are placed under a stress to which it is incapable of adhering to such as a twist, stretch and can lead to tears of the fibres.

Spinal pain

There are many causes to Spinal pain; it is best described as a musculoskeletal disorder that can be problematic to everyday life without the correct treatment. It is one of the main contributors to being off work but with the help of our physiotherapists that specialise in pain management back pain can be minimised and a full active life restored.

Pre & Post orthopaedic surgery

Pre and post orthopaedic surgery physiotherapy is a service which is offered to those who want to give themselves a greater chance of a speedy recovery or for those who are recovering from surgery and need rehabilitation of the highest standard from our specialised physiotherapists.

Spinal surgery

Our specialised physiotherapists utilise their extensive knowledge of anatomy to rehabilitate and prepare for the surgery. This provides the clients with the best possible chance of a speedy recovery and also maintain an active life with the possibility of a reduction in pain before the surgery.

Chronic pain

Pain is a protective mechanism triggered through the nervous system to warn ourselves of possible danger or damage. Chronic pain differs in that the sensation being experienced lets the body know that there is something wrong, but cannot always be pin pointed. Chronic pain can be extremely disabling, affecting our general health and quality of life for long periods of time.

Soft tissue injuries

Soft tissue injuries occur when the muscles, tendons and ligaments are stretched or forced beyond that of their capabilities, leading to tears, sprains and strains. These types of injuries are not just related to sports participants but those who may have had accidents and are seeking rehabilitation.

Sports injuries

Sports injuries are common among sport participants. The most common reasons these occur is a lack of warm up of the bodies systems in preparation for rigorous exercise or extending the bodies functions beyond its capabilities at a given time. Sports injuries can be an occupational hazard for professionals but also to those with active jobs as this can lead to a leave of absence from work.

Repetitive strain injury

Repetitive strains affect the musculoskeletal and nervous systems of the human body and can be caused by repetitive movements. These overused movements can cause pain, swelling of the joints, cramps and tenderness to the area.


A fracture is the displacement of bone from its original state. There are different classification of fractures which would need to diagnosed. Fractures can be caused for many reasons from playing sports or from a degenerative disease.


Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It is a degenerative disease which affects the joints, articular cartilage and subchondral bones. The physiotherapists specialise in the treatment and management of the condition with an emphasis on reducing pain and increasing movement.

Children with musculoskeletal injuries
