In pain, looking for treatment to improve your fitness and football performance - visit our Cardiff, South Wales based sports injury clinic

We see many injuries caused from playing football both at professional level and from people enjoying their love of the sport at an amateur level.
Football demands a very high level of fitness and for those without that standard of fitness, injuries are quite common place.

Most injuries are caused by the fast nature of the game and the over use, sudden changes in direction and tackle impact.
The most common injuries are:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Back pain
  • Leg pain
  • Shin splints
  • Knee injuries
  • Heel pain – plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles pain
  • Muscle strains

Preventing injuries whilst playing football can be achieved by improving specific areas of performance or technique. The main causes of injuries usually relate to:

  • Over-use
  • Weak muscles
  • Spinal misalignments
  • Not warming up properly
  • Ill –fitting football boots
  • Previous injuries

Our passion for sport has led us to become experts in diagnosing and treating the underlying causes of football related pain or discomfort.
