Services at Jon W Sports Injury
With our team of therapists
We work with clients of all ages and abilities and enjoy personalising our work to suit the needs of each individual.
We pride ourselves on being very approachable and knowledgeable therapist’s.
Our process is designed to correctly identify your injury using a series of tests and measures. Once an injury is identified it is vital when then establish the cause. We are strong believers in not just treating the injury itself but ultimately stopping the problem. This is how we ensure full rehabilitation.
The vast majority of rehabilitation treatments will include sports massage or deep tissue massage. Sports massage is something that should be included in the life of an athlete, whether injured or not. It has both physical and psychological effects for the individual.
Deep tissue massage will increase blood flow, providing injured areas with important nutrients and substances required for healing. It will increase tissue permeability and provide a passive stretch of tight tissue increasing elasticity. Effective massage strokes can break down scar tissue, speeding recovery and reducing pain.
While providing many physical benefits, massage will also have a relaxation effect through heat generation, improved circulation and passive stretching. It will reduce anxiety through the release of endorphins.
Sports massage can be used before or after competition with different purposes. The appropriate technique can have either a stimulating or relaxing effect on muscle tissue.
We use the techniques of effleurage, petrissage, tapotement and friction as part of his treatments.
- Effleurage can be light or deep. Effleurage is a continuous stroke with a gliding motion. It is applied using the palm of the hand of forearm. Effleurage increases blood flow, generates heat and aids lymphatic drainage.
- Petrissage is a more concentrated deep tissue massage technique working into specific areas or muscle groups. The fingertips or knuckles are used to pick, roll and kneed the tissue.
- Tapotement involves the use of cupping and hacking. These are rhythmic, dynamic movements that stimulate muscles groups.
- Friction is a specific deep technique that is used to break down scar tissue and adhesions. It can be used on muscle tissue, ligaments, tendons and fascia. It often involves working against the fibre direction.
One of our first objectives when returning someone to full fitness is to ensure that full mobility and flexibility is achievable. We use soft tissue techniques as well as personalised stretching programs in order to achieve this.
The body needs to be strong enough for the demands that you want to place it under. Therefore, it is vital that we can help you to adapt and be ready for the challenges ahead. We use tests and equipment to highlight any strength weaknesses and correct these with a personalised and progressive rehabilitation program. Not only returning you to pre-injury strength but becoming even stronger!

Ultrasound is a treatment that uses a specialised machine to send sound waves at a high frequency into the body.
Ultrasound is widely recognised as the best practical treatment to speed the healing process.
The sound waves cause soft tissue structures to relax and increase blood flow.
The increased blood flow can provide more oxygen, nutrients and remove waste.
This removes inflammation, scar tissue and ultimately pain.
Ultrasound is a pain-free treatment.
