Meet Our Sports Medicine and Musculoskeletal Team

Our team of Sports and Musculoskeletal Consultants treat injuries affecting all areas of the body – from osteoarthritis to tennis elbow. Just like sport, the field of sports medicine is based on teamwork. As such, your doctor at OneWelbeck will work closely with other specialists to come up with the right individualised approach to ensure you’re onto the road to recovery as soon as possible. Sports Medicine teams commonly include some of the following specialists: Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Orthopedic surgeons, Strength and conditioning coaches, Podiatrist, Dieticians and Psychologists.


What does a Sports Medicine consultant do?

There is a common misconception amongst non-athletes and amateur athletes that Sports Medics exclusively help professional athletes. This is not the case. Sports Medics specialise in musculoskeletal conditions, which along with injuries directly sustained from playing sports, include tendon issues, long term muscle injuries, and chronic pain and arthritis.

When should I see the Sports Medicine team at OneWelbeck?

  • Diagnostics, treatment, and recovery plans for new sports injuries (this can include sprains, strains, dislocations, fractures, and stress fractures)
  • Specialised treatment for chronic injuries (Pains for longer than 3 months, common examples include back, knee, foot and ankle pains)
  • Relief from joint pain (Tendonitis and osteoarthritis, or ‘wear and tear’ arthritis)
  • Head injuries and concussions (it is crucial to seek professional medical advice if you think you have symptoms of concussion)
  • World-leading diagnostics of hand and foot pains
  • Improving your athletic performance (speak to a medical doctor for clinical advice on how to improve and optimise your athletic performance)

The OneWelbeck Sports Medicine team is incorporated into the OneWelbeck Orthopaedics Centre. This enables patients access same day scans, diagnostics and treatments using the latest in musculoskeletal clinical technologies.

Designed around you

Our specialist team are well known for their work with elite athletes from sports as such rugby, tennis and athletics. But at OneWelbeck we know that injuries occur with little or no physical activity at all. So, whether you are an elite athlete, or no athlete at all, a sports medicine consultant may be the right person for you to see.

From bone, tendon, ligament or muscle, our experts aim to get to the route cause of why the injury occurred in the first place, and provide you with a comprehensive management plan to help with pain and improve your function.

All our consultants are trained in musculoskeletal ultrasound and will be able to use this (if appropriate) during your appointment to help with the diagnosis of your condition.
