Exercise and sports-related injuries can affect people of all ages, despite the fitness demands of the sport. Injuries can be mild or severe, and they can develop for many different reasons. Some common reasons include - improper training, overtraining, poor techniques or accidental. Consequently, sports injuries can have a huge impact on your sport and also your quality of life. If injuries are not dealt with fast and properly, they can keep you out of your sport for weeks or even months, thus, having huge implications for your fitness and function. Here, we believe in 3 things - catching the injury early, preventative care & management, and preservation of joint health.

Here are a few of the most common sports injuries we see and treat here at our sports injury clinic in Solihull and Birmingham:
Knee injuries are the most common form of sports-related injuries and are by far the most common sports injury we see here at Dynamic Osteopaths. Knee injuries range from soft tissue injuries like - tendinitis and iliotibial syndrome (acute or chronic) to more complex injuries like a ligament or cartilage tear. Here are some examples:
- Patella tendinitis
- ACL tear
- Ilio-tibial band syndrome
- Knee bursitis
- Meniscus tear
- Patello-femoral pain syndrome
- Chondromalacia patella
INJECTION FOR PAIN CONTROL
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
JOINT ASPIRATION (FOR JOINT SWELLING)
The shoulder joint has a huge range of motion, making it hugely complex. If your sport requires vast amounts of repetitive overhead movements – such as swimming or as in racket sports like tennis your shoulder is always vulnerable. Shoulder injuries are again a very common complaint we see here at Dynamic Osteopaths and these injuries tend to be more soft-tissue related injuries like tendinitis and ligament sprains. More complex shoulder injuries can involve cartilage and labrum issues. Here are some examples:
- Shoulder tendinitis
- Rotator cuff tear
- Shoulder bursitis
- Shoulder impingement
- Labral tear
- Bicipital tendinitis
- AC joint injury
Low back pain can be acute or chronic and can hugely impact your sporting activity and your life. Back pain can present itself in many different forms and needs to be acted on immediately to stand the best chance of recovery. No matter what your sport is - ongoing back pain will always cause problems. Again, back pain or spinal injuries are very common and are among the biggest overall complaint we see here at Dynamic Osteopaths. With back pain, it is extremely important the correct diagnosis is made with regards to the tissue causing symptoms and what has brought on and predisposed the back complaint. Here are some examples:
- Ligament sprain
- Facet joint inflammation
- Disc injury
- Sacro-iliac joint pain (SIJ)
Tennis elbow and golfers elbow are extremely common overuse sports injuries, commonly associated with repetitive action. These common conditions cause pain around the elbow joint and are commonly seen in sports goers and athletes who participate in sports that require repetitive wrist action. Here at Dynamic Osteopaths, we often treat elbow injuries with very good success. Some common conditions we see at the elbow are:

OUR APPROACH TO SPORTS INJURY TREATMENT
We have a huge passion and specialist interest in sport and exercise medicine, along with musculoskeletal dysfunction, and it is our aim to take the necessary steps to identify the correct diagnosis to enable effective treatment. In most cases, our physical assessment of the area of complaint and closely related joints will give us a good accurate idea of what is causing the pain. This being said, in some cases scans may be needed for diagnostic confirmation. At Dynamic Osteopaths, we are committed to relieving your pain and healing your sports injury, at the same time as dealing with the predisposing factors. It is the objective to ensure you make a full return to your active lifestyle.
At Dynamic Osteopaths, we have a unique specialist interest in regenerative medicine and like to utilize this when providing treatment for many sports injuries. In common practice, many doctors will focus on temporary pain-relief measures like cortisone injections or invasive surgery, but we believe in a more innovative way to naturally treat sports injuries by restoring function at the same time as reducing pain. We know that our patients want lasting results, not just a quick fix, and this is where preventive measures take place.
We are primarily focused on conservative treatment and minimally invasive alternative procedures that are frequently used to improve symptoms and repair local tissue damage caused by your sports injury, without the long healing and rehabilitation periods. These treatments may include highly regarded biological treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and hyaluronic acid treatment. We believe that these approaches offer an effective minimally invasive method for treating pain and injury. High amounts of sports goers and professional athletes are now opting for these forms of treatments for treating their sports-related injuries with ongoing positive results.
