Palmerston Sports Therapy Clinic
Our Sports Therapy Clinic caters for athletes and sportspeople of all ages and levels, the physically active and anyone suffering musculo-skeletal problems.
Sports Therapy is concerned with the prevention and treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability. It is also valuable in the prevention and treatment of occupational injuries and other conditions and is not limited to sports people.
Treatments typically involve advanced sports massage and stretching techniques. Unlike conventional massage treatments, there is no set routine and treatments are tailored towards individual needs – one size does not fit all. Clients are often given home exercise to enhance the effects of their treatment. Sports therapy is designed to:
- Treat over-tight muscles and specific areas of tension which general stretching cannot reach.
- Improve flexibility and range of movement by alleviating muscle and joint stiffness.
- Correct postural and muscular imbalances.
- Prepare the body for competition and speed up recovery from strenuous exercise.
Our new Sports Therapy Clinic at 36 Terregles Street is now taking bookings. Appointments can be made by calling 07518 006812 or by e-mailing email@example.com
We also offer the following services:
- Injury prevention advice to individuals, sports clubs and other organisations.

Sports Therapy for Young Athletes
Nowadays many young people take part in sports and athletic training and sports therapy can help muscles and connective tissues recover from exercise and prevent injury. While overuse injuries in children used to be a rarity, this is no longer the case as many younge people take part in strenuous training from a young age. Children are not miniature adults and their developing bodies are subject to different types of injury risk.
We provide sports therapy services for young athletes including dancers, football players, swimmers and rugby players. Parental consent is required for all treatments on young people under 16 years and children should be accompanied by a parent or carer. We are registered with Disclosure Scotland via their PVG scheme. All our treatments are tailored towards individual needs and our prices are a guide only. We offer pre- and post-event massage and regular maintenance massage.
Sports massage full leg (front and backs of legs and feet) £15.00

Sports Injury Consultation £15.00
