A Runners Injury and His Confusion Between Sports Rehabilitation, Sports Therapist, Chiropractor, Sports Physio and Physiotherapist.
This month we take a look at how local Nuneaton runner Kelvin was treated at the Queens Road Sports Injury Clinic. Kelvin based in Nuneaton started his journey back to physical activity after a long time off through time commitments. After trying playing sports such as football, rugby and cricket with various sports teams and clubs in Nuneaton Kelvin found his enjoyment from running. After suffering a major injury Kelvin states his story about his journey into activity and the confusion between Sports Rehabilitation, Sports Therapist, Sports Physio, Physiotherapy and Chiropractor and the choices he made.
Football? Cricket? Rugby?
Kelvin started running with local Nuneaton running clubs and attended the famous Bedworth Park Run along side the Coventry Park Run. Having established a running pattern and form Kelvin decided he would venture out and try a organised run in this case the Two Castles 10km Race.
Disaster Strikes Sports Injury Hinders Progress
It was during one of his runs 7 weeks away from his big debut run at a local running event in Nuneaton and Bedworth when Kelvin first felt pain in his knee. At this point he carried on hoping it would ease off however this wasn’t the case. The next day Kelvin woke up to extreme pain to his knee and he was not able to weight bare let alone walk or run. Concerned he set out to seek help as the deadline for fitness was looming in the background.
Who to see for his Sports Injury Treatment? Sports Rehabilitation? Sports Physio ? Sports Therapist? Physiotherapist? Chiropractor? Kelvins Choice and Explanation?
Confused on who to see for treatment Kelvin set out to find information on sports injury treatment in Nuneaton. He explains what he found and how. “Following my sports injury I was devastated it was difficult enough for me to get back into activity but 7 weeks before my running event I wasn’t expecting to sustain a sports injury. I set out to seek treatment and was confused there was various physiotherapists, sports therapists sports physio, sports rehabilitates, and chiropractors in Nuneaton. After digging deeper I realised I needed someone who specialised in sports injury and sports injury rehabilitation and after seeking recommendations for Sports injury and Sports injury treatment using Sports Rehabilitation I chose the Queens Road Sports Injury Clinic in Nuneaton”.
So Whats the verdict Kelvin?
After finding Queens Road Sports Injury Clinic Kelvin says “I was extremely pleased I wasn’t sure if i needed a sports therapist, sports rehabilitator, sports physio, physiotherapist, or chiropractor. In the end i decided to make logical choice and go for whats in the title and chose a sports based therapist who also specialised in sports injury rehabilitation hence my choice to go to the Queens Road Sports Injury Clinic in Nuneaton. They diagnosed me with knee ligament damage and set about using soft tissue injury treatment as well as sports injury rehabilitation to get me back to full fitness.
