Some of the conditions we treat may be familiar to you, many serious sports men and women regularly suffer with pain during their respective sporting activities or during supplementary training. It is often remarked that pain is part of active and sustained training and should be accepted as such (“No gain, without pain”) but it is not normal and most sporting injuries can often be avoided or successfully addressed and eliminated.
