Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only deal with sports injuries and athletes?

Not at all! We welcome clients of all backgrounds, ages, abilities and injuries (non-injured too in fact!). Whether you are injured in sport, injured at work, have had an accident, just have a niggle or have a full bill of health, you can still benefit from a visit to Phoenix Sports Injury Clinic. Our services can treat a variety of symptoms and despite specialising in sports injury, we find that many injury types share common treatments. Additionally, we can help you maintain good health, improve your lifestyle, develop performance or simply elevate your mental wellbeing through the use of exercise and therapy!

What kind of conditions and injuries do you treat?

We specialise in neuromusculoskeletal injuries, meaning that most of our expertise lies in conditions involving chronic pain or damaged nerve, muscle, bone and connective tissues. However we can also help you manage pain stemming from non-traumatic conditions, such as muscular imbalances. Some of the most common injuries that we treat include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Repetitive Strain & Overuse Injuries

  • Shin Splints

  • Back Pain​

  • Tendinopathy​

  • Ligament Strains

  • (Post) Reconstructive Surgery

  • 'Sciatica' & Radiculopathy

  • Shoulder Pain (Impingement, Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff Injury, Upper Cross Syndrome etc.)

  • Blunt Trauma i.e. sports impact


As well as treating conditions within our scope of practice, we may also be able to help you to understand a pre-diagnosed condition or help you to receive the most appropriate referral through our consultation service.

I'm a member of a non-affiliated club/gym...
Can I still use phoenix?

Here a Phoenix, we are more than happy to provide for individuals who are part of other clubs and gyms. Should the club allow it, we can travel to you, although many commercial gyms will not allow us to do so, as we cannot have memberships in every gym! However, we can organise one off/pay-as-you-go access to our 'base' gyms and of course, provide non gym-based services in our clinic. If none of these options are suitable, we are also happy to provide home visits, bringing our great services directly to your doorstep!

Do you charge extra for nutritional guidance and a diet plan?

Simply ask as many questions during treatment/training as you wish and we will always provide the best advice we can, absolutely free of charge. We no longer provide meal plans, as we prefer to provide you with the tools and advice to make the lifestyle and diet changes you need to support your rehab, fitness and overall health.
