This is a regular feature of introducing some of our businesses and sharing their top tips on sports injuries, recovery and finding treatment.
Who are you and where are you based?
I'm Sara Green a graduate sports therapist located in Aylesford village, Kent. I specialise in sports injuries.
What are the most common sports related injuries you see?
As I work in rugby I often see hamstring strains and ankle sprains. With runners lots of Itb/hip stability issues.
What's your top tip for reducing the risk of injury?
Top tip is to warm up - always. Preferably with dynamic stretching and 5-10 min of light cardio.
Are there any ways people can speed up their recovery?
Sports massage either with a therapist or self massage with a foam roller can help speed up recovery. Also a quick dip (10 min) in an ice bath.
What should people look for when choosing a treatment provider?
Look for someone who works in or is active in sport. They'll not only understand biomechanics but also the demands even everyday athletes put themselves under.
