Competing whilst still in pain with an injury or trying to fight injuries with the aid of painkillers is often detrimental and can lead to tremendous damage to the joints, ligaments and muscles. It will often lead to recurrent future injuries.
Many active men and women regularly visit a qualified Sports Chiropractor to have injuries diagnosed and treated, to prevent further injuries and/or to find out why they continually get a recurring injury. Our specialist Chiropractors can help to improve an athletes’ overall performance, working with you and your coaches to achieve the best of your body’s ability. The majority of professional teams, athletes and motor racing teams employ Sports Chiropractors to prevent injuries. The sporting world is now coming to realise the high quality level of diagnosis, treatment and injury prevention that a specialist Sports Chiropractor can provide.

Sports Injury Specialists
Our Chiropractors Simon Rose and Danny Adams, here at our Gloucester based clinic, have both played a variety of sports to a high level (also incurring their own injuries along the way!). This is the foundation upon which they have learned their skills. Their successful sporting histories, along with their specialist sports chiropractic qualifications and internationally recognised Sports Science Diplomas, sets them apart from other health care practitioners. They continually strive to provide the very best in injury diagnosis and treatment, injury prevention and performance enhancement.
Our Chiropractors are all registered with, and actively participate in, events sanctioned by the British Chiropractic Sports Council. Simon Rose is a Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner, and Danny Adams is one of the only Chiropractors in South West with the required qualification to treat injuries at major International sporting events, including the Olympic and World Games.

You don’t have to be injured to benefit from massage! Performers of any sporting level can benefit from an athletic or sports specific massage and at any stage of participation (before, during or after competing) at our Gloucester based clinic. Massage also works well for the actual prevention of an injury, such as a previously tight calf in a runner. Once things have gone wrong and an injury has happened, massage can really get things moving again and help get someone back to achieving their best. Our Massage Therapists are higfhly experienced and have worked at events such as the 2012 London Olympics and the 2014 Athletics Masters. They work closely with our Chiropractors to make sure all injuries are recovering at the fastest possible rate, to get you back doing the things you love!
Our team has worked with many of the local teams in the Gloucester area at all levels, be it Rugby, Football, Athletics, Tennis, Golf, Cricket and many more. We can also provide healthcare support at sporting events. Contact us for more information about how we are able to help.
