Sports injury

The human body is amazingly robust and is designed to run, walk, climb and move. However, playing sport can result in the occasional injury. Most improve rapidly with relative rest and gradual return to sport. But what do you do when the same injuries return?

As Sheffield’s leading specialist physiotherapy clinic, our highly skilled and approachable therapists will get to the root cause of the problem rapidly and efficiently, resolving the pain and allowing you to return to sport quickly.


Stress on muscles and tendons is normal but if these forces change rapidly the result can be pain and inability to continue our sport. At Hallamshire Physiotherapy we see many people who have already had many forms of treatment but have failed to improve. Treating local tissues with massage and stretching will not give long-term results if you are still continuing to run in an abnormal way or fail to rotate correctly during golf or playing football for example.

After a detailed assessment we will explain your problem and give you the tools to help get out of this situation.

These are the common sporting injuries we see at the clinic:

  • Tendinopathy
  • Muscle strains
  • Back pain
  • Medial tibial pain (Shin splints)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Lateral/medial elbow pain (Tennis, Golfer’s elbow)
  • Ligament injuries
  • Shoulder instability/trauma
  • Climbing injuries
  • Cycling injuries
  • Greater trochanter pain syndrome

Please refer to the list on the right of this page for more information on each sporting injury, it may be that you require treatment within a number of these injuries, and this can be worked into your treatment plan. If you need further information or wish to discuss your suitability for treatment, then please contact the clinic and one of our sports injury physiotherapists can discuss your needs with you. Assessment and treatment can be carried out in our clinic or at home if you are unable to attend.

You can be confident with Hallamshire Physiotherapy Clinic. Our outstanding reputation speaks for itself and all our high-quality specialist treatments you can trust.

Bike services

Cycling injury rehabilitation
Unfortunately, due to gravity or repeated loads, all cyclists experience pain and discomfort. Most problems improve with time, but if they don’t, we have the highly trained staff who will get you cycling again.

Common cycling problems include:

  • Shoulders/neck
  • Lower back and hips
  • Knee

Bike and rider set up
Optimising your position on the bike will help improve performance and reduce the risk of injuries. Balancing how your body works to the demands of cycling is not straight forward and we too often see the effects of incorrect advice and set up.

Our highly skilled therapists in bike set up will:

  • Set the optimum riding position for you on the bike
  • Prevent or help treat injuries
  • Optimise your cycling position to maximise performance

Matthew Withycombe is the only therapist currently providing the Bike Fit service.
