Sports injuries are part and parcel of playing and occur either due to trauma or overuse of tissues such as muscles, ligaments and bones. Traumatic injuries often occur in sports such as rugby and GAA due to a fall, contact or twisting motion e.g ACL (cruciate) rupture. Overuse injuries occur gradually over time, due to overloading or repetitive use of tissues e.g tennis elbow.
If you have a sporting injury it is important to get assessed by a Chartered physiotherapist as soon as possible. This will speed your recovery back to sport and prevent your issues from becoming chronic, where they become harder to treat and take longer to recover.
At Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic we will use a thorough assessment to diagnose your injury, and then your physiotherapist will guide you through a personalised rehabilitation programme. This will include exercises to regain muscle strength and joint mobility; other treatment techniques such as manual therapy; and may also include taping or bracing to assist with gradual return to activity.
All the Chartered physiotherapists at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic are skilled and experienced in sports rehabilitation and are comfortable working alongside your trainer, coach or manager to incorporate your rehabilitation programme into your training, working together to get you back to full function.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
