When engaging in our favourite sports and physical activities, we’re susceptible to various physical ailments whether by accident, foul or general impact on our joints. Injuries such as sprains and muscle strains are common risks associated with sports and exercise. However, receiving the right assistance and treatment promptly can quicken your recovery. Seeking help at our sports injury clinic will not only address pain and discomfort in strained muscles and joints but also accelerate your healing process. Sports massages and stretches also enhance your body’s flexibility, reducing the likelihood of future issues.

At Mid Sussex Osteopaths, we boast a superb team of sports massage therapists available to address sports-related injuries. Whether it’s a recent injury or a persistent problem affecting your performance, we can customise treatment to improve your comfort. We tailor our massage service to your needs as each and every issue is unique. 

Treating Joint and Muscle Issues at Our Local Sports Injury Clinic

At Mid Sussex Osteopaths, we treat the body as a whole. Through a holistic approach to treatment, we can address a wide range of issues. We cover all musculoskeletal problems that can arise from participating in sports. We offer free 20-minute consultations which give us an opportunity to assess your injury and suggest how we would treat your condition to help you recover. Our services also cover issues that you can develop in your general day-to-day life down to posture issues and sitting sedentary while working long hours behind a desk.

P – Protect: After your injury, limit your movements if they cause you more pain. However, try to stay mobile if you can without hurting yourself further.

E – Elevate: If your injury is swelling, you can reduce the inflammation by raising the limb above the level of your heart.

A – Avoid: Don’t rely on anti-inflammatory medication. While ice and medicine will provide short-term relief, it only treats the symptoms and not the cause. They could hinder long-term healing.

C – Compress: Compression methods such as bandages, supports and compression clothing can help allow more movement.

E – Educate: Seek professional information about your injury. Speak to a sports therapist to understand best how to recover from your injury.

L – Load: Resume a normal balance of activity the moment your symptoms ease. Don’t over-rest or tax yourself.
O – Optimism: Have a positive outcome on your injury. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. The more positive you feel, the faster you’ll recover.
V – Vascularisation: When you can, take part in aerobic exercises such as walking or swimming to increase your blood flow.
E – Exercise: Don’t overdo it but keep up your exercise to improve your strength, mobility and balance following your injury.

Be kind to yourself and be patient with your body. You will recover. Sometimes, you need a helping hand. That’s where we come in. We’ll help relieve pain and encourage mobility back into your life following an injury.

How Are Sports Injuries Treated?

Just as every injury is different, so is the method of treatment. This is why we take a holistic approach to every injury as it can impact more than just the area where the pain is located. The moment that you realise that you’ve done yourself some damage, that’s the moment you should get in contact with a sports therapist as sometimes self-diagnosing and treating the injury yourself can make it worse. Do you need ice or heat? Elevation or movement? If you’re asking yourself these questions, it’s best to get the answers from an expert.

So that you aren’t making the injury potentially worse while you wait for treatment, here are some tips to help you at home:

Our approach covers a multitude of different sports injuries. We can help treat:

Muscle soreness

Runner’s knee

Our Treatments


Osteopathy focuses on the entire musculoskeletal system. It encompasses the whole body and is known to treat a variety of health problems. Our friendly team of osteopaths have a host of experience when it comes to a hands-on approach to care. Treatment involves a range of techniques to ease muscle tension while also using manipulation and stretching to improve mobility and blood flow.

Sports Massage

Our Sports Massage Therapists employ a range of deep massage techniques that treat muscle and joint pain caused through injury and repetitive strain. Sports massages ease out any knots in the muscles and help stretch out the soft tissues of the body to reduce tension. By easing tension, we improve mobility, helping your recovery to get back on track. Sports massages also help improve your flexibility to prevent further injuries while taking part in the sports and activities that you love.

Tailored Sports Injury Treatment Plans

Every injury is different and so is our approach. Before we get started with your treatment, we first have a 20-minute free consultation to get a better idea of your injury. During this appointment, we discuss your symptoms and how you were injured. We provide a quick assessment and talk about what treatment will be best for you. Following our consultation, we can then start your recovery properly. If you wish to see us for a consultation, just fill out the contact form and we’ll call you back as soon as we can.

Visited Mike England of mid Sussex osteopaths who efficiently and effectively showed me the issues I had and started treatment including giving good advice and some home stretching. I would recommend them.
Response from the owner: Many thanks for this review Mark. Advice on what exercises people should be doing at home is a key part of what we do. It gets people better much quicker than just treatment alone!
Adam was an absolute god send when it came to getting the right advice for my rehabilitation and recovery. He helped at such a pivotal time in the process when all other avenues had dried up. I have Adam to thank for being able to regain my full health and fitness back.
Response from the owner: Many thanks for this David. Getting the right treatment and advice at the right time is so crucial to recovering from injury. Unfortunately people often have to wait too long for help on the NHS when a timely treatment or two with us can get them back on track quickly. I'm glad the recovery has gone so well for you!
I have been visiting Mid Sussex Osteopaths for a number of years now. I always trust them to look after me and help me with my latest problems.

I have recommended them to friends, and I plan continue to be a customer of theirs for years to come.
