At Glasgow Sports Injury Centre we successfully treat all types of patients.
Professional athletes and amateur sportsmen & women looking to maximize their performance, and people who don’t participate in sports, but still need a non-surgical approach to alleviating aches and pains.
We treat a wide range of overuse injuries, combining the latest in sports therapy, massage, biomechanics and physical rehab. Our non-invasive treatments are effective in restoring pain-free function, and allowing clients to resume their sports and daily activities. We work together with patients to improve performance, without unnecessary or prolonged care.
