Sports Injury and Medicine

The dedicated team at Aspen Healthcare are committed to helping you make progress after sustaining a sports injury. We offer rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment to both professional athletes and those who enjoy sport for fun. Our expert team of sports consultants advise on a wide range of sports and exercise-related injuries. Anyone who enjoys sport, whether professionally or not is keen to return to the level of fitness they enjoyed pre-injury. We are here to help you achieve this and to reduce the effect the injury has on your life. 

Consultation, diagnosis and treatment 

At Aspen Healthcare we have a physiotherapy team on hand to give you advice every step of the way.  We always aim to provide patients with a full range of professional treatment, care and support.

Our team will always take the time to identify the original causes of injuries and what can be done to make sure they are avoided in the future. We offer advice that is customised to the individual patient, whether that is ways to warm up or training techniques. 

In addition to our team, we also offer imaging services which use the latest technology. These include x-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI scans. These on-site services include reports compiled by a team of specialist radiologists to ensure you receive a prompt and accurate diagnosis. They are also on hand to give you the advice you need to make informed decisions about your treatment.

Our experienced and highly-skilled team of surgeons perform a range of sports-related procedures, including keyhole surgery, the treatment of fractures and the repair of ligament, tendon or nerve injuries. By offering the best procedures we have helped a number of patients including cyclists, skiers, athletes, footballers, gymnasts, runners and many more. Our aim – and the aim of our patients – is to ensure they return to their optimum level of performance.
