SPORTS & EXERCISE MEDICINE
We are pleased to provide appointments with our consultant physician Dr Chris Rufford.
Further assessment with Dr Rufford allows our patients to benefit from his extensive clinical experience. It can strengthen confidence in diagnosis and broadens the range of treatment options available for many conditions.
Key services provided by Chris include:
Local cortisone injection techniques
Referral imaging (x-ray and MRI) and image interpretation
These appointments supplement the assessment and ‘hands-on’ treatment of our manual practitioners and are important to our multidisciplinary team approach.
