No one wants to be out of their sport due to injury however, certain activities do carry an increased risk. You may be aware that historically, cruciate ligament damage at the knee, was a career ending injury for many professional footballers; thankfully, with advances in knowledge and treatment this is no longer the case, but it is nevertheless, a serious injury which can mean a lengthy absence and failure to return to the same level.

In recent years there have been a significant number of studies showing that specific focus on certain aspects of training can directly reduce the incidence of these injuries. Droitwich Knee Clinic, which is one of the oldest knee clinics in the UK focuses on injury prevention scheme and works to ensure that adequate training encompasses the following key elements

1. Flexibility – optimise joint mobility and muscle length.

2. Strength – It is imperative that the individual has the strength to participate in the relevant sport for the relevant time – lack of adequate strength leads to increased vulnerability to injury.

3. Good technique during exercise and skills training will reduce vulnerability. Individuals need to have body awareness and work with coaches, teachers and trainers to develop this. The classic example of this is jump landing technique which is frequently a contributory issue in sports such as basketball, hand ball, football and netball.

4. Incorporate rebound (plyometric) activities in the training programme.

5. Increase speed and agility (proprioception) with appropriate training.

This means that they can be sure of getting the best results from their treatment program. Additionally, with a full professional clinical team all working together under one roof, good communication is assured.

Patients can get treatment in the clinic’s own on-site physiotherapy clinic and expert team. It also combines a range of options, from podiatry to sports medicine and sports injury services.

Droitwich Knee Clinic states: “Our team have access to extensive investigative equipment, such as X-RAY’s, MRI and physio assessment tools, enabling us to provide a ‘one stop solution’ tailored for each patient’s individual need.”

Here at Droitwich Knee Clinic we can help you optimise your training and reduce your risk of major injury.Every patient can get in touch knowing they will be treated as an individual, not a statistic, with their own tailored plan.
