Sports Injuries

Those who lead an active life and regularly engage in physical exercise and sports are well aware that injury can happen all too easily. But that does not make them any less frustrating; an awkward fall, twisted knee, torn muscle or snapped tendon can leave you out the game for a very long time.

At The Chelmsford Private Hospital, we can help. If you are suffering from a sporting injury, from golfer’s elbow to runner’s knee, our orthopaedic specialists can offer comprehensive, fast and effective treatment for all kinds of exercise-related injuries.

Our team includes highly experienced sports physicians, orthopaedic nurses and surgeons, renowned in their area of expertise. They can offer you the peace of mind you need throughout your diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.

Our point-of-care imagining facilities include X-ray, MRI and Ultrasound scanners for vital early diagnosis, allowing our orthopaedic specialists to accurately suggest the next steps of your treatment.

These treatments could include acupuncture, re-aligning a dislocated shoulder, treating a foot or ankle fracture or repairing damaged knee cartilage. We also offer minimally-invasive keyhole (arthroscopy) surgery procedures to repair or reconstruct ligaments such as the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament).

It could be suggested that shockwave therapy is suitable. This non-invasive treatment can provide healing and alleviate the pain experienced with chronic tendon inflammations in the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, Achilles and sole of the foot.

To help you back to the sport you love as quickly as possible, our team also includes a Consultant in Musculoskeletal, Sport & Exercise Medicine, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists, Podiatrist and a Dietician. Not only will they support your recovery, they will be able to offer advice to help you avoid similar injuries in the future and assess and optimise your balance and the alignment of weight bearing joints with gait analysis.

At The Chelmsford we can treat all manner of sports injury – not just those that have been mentioned here. So if you would like further information about how we can cater to your individual requirements, then please give us a call.
