First Aid / Sports Therapy
First aid and sports therapy are critically important for all players at Giffnock SC and as a club we want to ensure access to the correct level of care.
We are delighted to recommend Glasgow Sports Injury Centre http://glasgowsportsinjurycentre.co.uk/about/#
Glasgow Sports Injury Centre successfully treat all types of patients. Professional athletes and amateur sportsmen & women looking to maximize their performance, and people who don’t participate in sports, but still need a non-surgical approach to alleviating aches and pains.
They treat a wide range of overuse injuries, combining the latest in sports therapy, massage, biomechanics and physical rehab. Their non-invasive treatments are effective in restoring pain-free function, and allowing clients to resume their sports and daily activities. They work together with patients to improve performance, without unnecessary or prolonged care.
Appointments last 1 hour rather than the standard 30 minutes with an exercise video supplied at the end of the consultation for continued work.
