Injury Prevention

The best offence is a good defence, right? And when it comes to running, being injured is something we all want to defend against.

“Got a niggle?  Did you know we can still assess and treat by video if you prefer? Seeing you face to face for treatment is back to normal from assessment through to sports massage.  Don’t wait for a niggle to become an injury as sports massage can really help.”

Kate Southall, Lead Physio.

At Accelerate Performance Centre we have the tools and skills to help you run longer and stronger without succumbing to injury that can stop your training in its tracks for weeks or months at a time.

We offer:
Sports massage to keep your body in top condition, working out those tight spots in your muscles before they become an issue, improving circulation and reducing post race aches and tightness.

Dry Needling can be used as an alternative or alongside sports massage. As with massage, the aims of dry needling are to reduce muscle tension, improve movement and promote tissue recovery.

Dry needling or ‘medical acupuncture’ is a new service offered at APC by our Physiotherapist/Soft tissue therapists.

Strength and Stability sessions to reduce your risk of injury and help you become a more efficient and powerful runner. These sessions can be tailored to any ability to help you develop as a runner.

Biomechanics coaching to improve your movement by allowing your muscles to work more efficiently and in a balanced way. You will gain the tools to ‘fix’ yourself and then progress into strength work.

To make an appointment please call 0114 242 2569 or to talk to one of our coaches about how we can help then please get in touch via our Contact section.
