What to expect
We take your care and your health very seriously. At your first appointment, your experienced and caring Physiotherapist will take a thorough case history and conduct a full examination. In some cases, you may be referred for an X-ray, or EOS scan, or ultrasound to ensure you get the most accurate diagnosis possible.
Once we have all the information we need, we will develop a detailed and specialised treatment plan for you. This will include a combination of both manual therapy and exercises for maximum pain relief and injury rehabilitation. If your recovery is taking longer than initially expected, we will refer you to a specialist for further assessment.
You can be assured that your rehabilitation is our number one priority and we will have you returning to work or sport as soon as we can.
Our well-equipped clinic, and our fun and friendly staff, offer you a reliable and professional service. At Max Sports our aim is to get you back on your feet and living an active lifestyle again in no time.
