Hip and knee problems
Coming in for one our Sports Medical Certificates. Or perhaps you just successfully ran a marathon and your knees don’t feel quite right now?
Endurance sports such as running, swimming and weightlifting can cause our joints to suffer from general wear and tear or result in an injury that required specialist attention. If you have any concerns before or after undertaking a sporting event, book an appointment with one of our doctors.
Groin injuries and pains in this area can actually be linked to your hips and knees. If you experience any pain in this area, don’t ignore it and speak to one of our doctors about seeing our Orthopaedic Consultant for a full musculoskeletal assessment to help identify the cause of the problem. Often there is a simple, non-surgical solution that can easily managed with the correct medical guidance.
Foot and ankle pain
Ankles are very complex joints and pain can be due to multiple factors: instability, a simple strain, arthritis, tendonitis, a fracture and more. The safest way to get a correct diagnosis is to see a doctor and get it examined. Our doctors will be able to advise on treatment plans and whether you need a referral to see an orthopaedic specialist.
If you’re planning on taking part in a triathlon or an Ultra Marathon, speak to your doctor during your physical assessment about any foot & ankle concerns you may have. If needed, our doctors can arrange a rapid referral and diagnostic imaging before your race to make sure you’re at your peak.
Shoulder and elbow pain
Shoulder and elbow problems are of the most common musculoskeletal problems. Shoulder pain is often the symptom of another problem, which is why it’s important to speak to a doctor is the pain doesn’t subside after 2 weeks.
Shoulder pain can also be caused by poor posture, trauma, frozen shoulder and joint disorders such as arthritis. Sometimes the pain can be caused by a problem in your neck, causing pain in your shoulders and upper back. Our GPs can provide advice and treatment options at any of our clinic.
Back pain and other spinal issues
