tom-saw-1Sports Medicine encompasses the management of a huge range of injuries and medical conditions affecting athletes, from groin strains to over-training syndrome.

At the Blackberry Clinic we have two Sports Medicine Specialists who have both attained post graduate qualifications in Sports and Exercise Medicine as well as Osteopathy, Surgery and General Practice.

Our specialists can help you with the treatment of acute injuries and their prevention, and help you to train more effectively. The sports physicians work with a wide range of other therapists to help manage your training and deal with any injuries and guide rehabilitation.

They are trained in both peripheral and spinal injections which they are able to perform under X-ray guidance in the state-of-the-art theatre suite at the clinic. They are both members of:

The Blackberry Clinic has strong ties to the GB Olympic Rowing Team and several Premiership Football Clubs, providing specialist advice and treatment on elite athletes' back problems. We are delighted to have been instrumental in helping injured rowers achieve Olympic glory and international footballers to get to the World Cup.

We also offer exercise medicine consultations, seeking to use exercise as a health tool to drive health improvement. Preventing ill health and disease with regular exercise is much more cost-effective than treating conditions with expensive drugs or surgery. Exercise is a key factor in the management strategy of most chronic medical conditions and improves quality of life and function, whilst reducing healthcare costs. Sports and Exercise Medicine Physicians are skilled in risk assessment, exercise testing, interpretation, prescription and supervision for chronic medical conditions and are able to cross boundaries in delivering exercise to heterogenous groups of patients that disease-specific specialists are not.

Sports medicine is one of the newest specialties in medicine, with the formation in 2006 of the Intercollegiate Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM), a faculty of the Royal College of Physicians of London and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. The Irish Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) is the joint intercollegiate medical specialty of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI).

Both of the Blackberry Clinic Sports Physicians are Fellows or Members of both Colleges. Over the years Sports Medicine has, however, been practiced by a variety of different specialities including general practice, orthopaedics, rheumatology and pain doctors. The SEM doctors working at the Blackberry Clinic have multiple qualifications in several medical specialities including Sports Medicine, Surgery, Musculoskeletal Medicine, Osteopathy, General Practice and Occupational Health. We are here to help deal with your acute injuries and manage your return to sport at any level.
