Sports Physio


Does your Physio do Sports Massage?

Yes if its appropriate for your condition. We no longer employ sports massage therapists and as such no longer offer it as a stand alone service. 

How is physiotherapy different to sports massage?

Physiotherapists are Healthcare Professionals, Sonya Ginty is a sports injury specialist.

Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose your condition and form an appropriate management plan according to your goals and needs.

Treatment can include a variety of techniques including massage, acupuncture/dry needling, taping, joint mobilisations, and tailored exercises. 

What can I expect from my first appointment?

First appointment will include a consultation and physical examination. Sonya will diagnose the condition you present with, and suggest a Management Plan (Treatment & Exercises).

Your Management Plan also begins within that first session.

Your Management Plan can typically include hands on treatment, in the form of joint mobilisations, acupuncture or massage, combined with taping.  

You are likely to be provided a tailored exercise programme to complete in your own time.
All treatment varies according to your injury, medical history and personal preferences. 

If Sonya thinks physiotherapy is inappropriate for your condition she will refer you on for investigation, or to see a specialist or suggest a different route of enquiry. 

Does your Physio use acupuncture?

Yes if you have no contra-indications and it is agreed appropriate for your condition. 

Does Your Physio do dry needling?

Essentially yes, dry needling is a form of acupuncture and Sonya is a trained acupuncturist for the treatment of pain.

Dry needling and acupuncture are used to help reduce muscle spasm and reduce levels of pain. Dry needling acupuncture facilitates the release of your body’s own endorphins and chemical mediators of pain into your system. 

Why do I need a 45 minute initial appointment?

See answer above re 1st appointment , 30 minutes will mainly involve the consultation and diagnosis. 
Shorter follow up appointments can be completed in 30 minutes if requested. 

Can I have taping as a stand alone treatment? 

Yes this can be organised as a stand alone treatment with short consultation in a 30 minute appointment. Typically this is appropriate preceding  sporting events and competitions.
