Get back to your sport and exercise as soon as possible
When sports injuries do occur, rapid assessment and treatment can help get you on the way to recovery again.
Whether you are an elite athlete competing at the highest level, a “weekend warrior” involved in a local football league, or somebody just starting to get back into a gentle exercise routine to try to improve your strength and stamina, you may experience a sports injury at some point.
Acute trauma (for example, fracturing an ankle while playing football, or dislocating a shoulder during a game of rugby) will be treated through the NHS in A&E. Chronic conditions (i.e. those that have developed over a period of time) or ones that are not getting better by themselves, may benefit from expert assessment and treatment.
At The Park Hospital in Nottingham, highly experienced consultants provide expert assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for people aged 18+ for a wide variety of sports injuries and conditions, both for bone and soft tissue. They would be delighted to help you too. If you’re struggling with a sports-related injury, why not book your private consultation today?
The primary purpose of this page is to help show how we can help with the first of these – treatment for an injury acquired during sports.
If you’ve sustained any type of sports or exercise injury, you will want help as soon as possible to get you:
It is also helpful to know whether you can continue to train safely without causing further injury or damage (and if not, when you WILL be able to start training safely again).
Our consultants provide a variety of treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, to help treat the underlying problem and to promote recovery. Depending on your injury, your treatment may be primarily focused on reducing pain, strengthening a joint, or increasing your mobility.
Our consultants are highly experienced, and provide guidance and treatment to professional athletes and recreational athletes
Your initial consultation will involve your consultant taking a medical history and discussing your symptoms with you. They will want to know things like:
They will carry out a physical examination of the affected area and joints to assess the severity of your symptoms and how they are currently limiting you. They may examine other areas as well, to rule out referred pain or any corresponding issues. (For example, some knee pain may be caused by a problem in the hip or spine.)
Further investigations may be needed, such as X-ray, CT, MRI, or ultrasound. With all these imaging modalities available on-site, we can arrange them for you quickly and easily if required.
Blood tests may also sometimes be required, and these can usually be done on the day of your visit.
Once any results are back your consultant will talk through everything with you, explaining the diagnosis and suitable treatment options. Certain therapies may be started within your initial consultation, or an appointment may be booked with a relevant specialist to begin treatment as soon as possible.
Non-surgical treatments include:
Our purpose-built private physiotherapy gym provides an ideal environment for many exercised and therapies to help get throughout your recovery.
If surgery is needed, this can be arranged for you. We have specialists in:
Many types of surgery can be carried out at The Park Hospital using keyhole (arthroscopic) surgery. Because this uses only very small incisions in the skin, pain and bleeding is reduced, scarring is less visible, and recovery can be faster.
Your consultant will always explain treatment options to you so that you have the information you need to make an informed choice about treatment. We can help you to access the treatment you need to return to training as quickly and safely as possible.
With superb facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and on-site critical care cover staffed 24/7, it is a very safe place to receive a range of treatments.
