Sport injuries can affect almost any part of the body, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments).
Sprains and strains are the most common type of sports injury. A sprain happens when one or more of the ligaments are stretched, twisted or torn. A muscle strain ("pulling a muscle") happens when muscle tissues or fibres are stretched or torn.
Signs of a sprain or strain can include pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness around a joint or in a muscle. You may also find it difficult to move the affected body part.
At Carlton Therapy Centre, Nottingham you can be assured of up to date treatments which may include taping, ultrasound therapy and acupuncture.
Barry successfully treated my achilles tendonitis which in my case was a running injury. He used massage and ultrasound and had me in great shape in no time. His advice on my training schedule was put to good use. Many thanks, Donald, Nottingham

I visited Barry at Carlton Therapy Centre for my painful tennis elbow. Not only was his treatment successful in relieving my pain but his advice on how to correct my stance to prevent this happening again was invaluable. Christine G, Ollerton
