SPORT INJURIES

Sport Injuries is a collective term used to describe a multitude of injuries that can occur among recreational or elite athletes. Symptoms may include, pain, swelling, loss of movement and inability to play sport.

Sport injuries may result from:

  • A heavy overload/repetitive overuse
  • Sudden increases in intensity/frequency of training
  • Uneven surfaces/poor footwear
  • Faulty biomechanics, poor alignment and muscle imbalance

 

Common Sport Injuries Include:

  • Rotator Cuff Syndromes, Bursitis and Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow/Golfers Elbow
  • Shoulder, Hip, Knee and Ankle Joint Sprains
  • Quadricep, Calf and Achilles Tendon Tears
  • Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spurs
  • Back/Neck and Joint Pain

Treatment:

  • Education: ice vs. heat. Identify and correct training errors. Appropriate stability products such as orthotics, taping, braces and compression sleeves.
  • Electrotherapy: Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy, Laser, Ultrasound, Interferential and Tens are used to decrease pain, inflammation, swelling and to stimulate the rate and quality of healing. They also assist in the breakdown of scar tissue.
  • Manual Therapy: mobilization (joint and soft tissue) techniques to correct biomechanics, regain muscle length and to release scar tissue.
  • Acupuncture: is effective in regaining tissue elasticity as well as in the release of scar tissue.
  • Exercise Rehabilitation: progressive exercise program that includes core stability, strength, flexibility, balance, agility, functional strength and plyometrics.

 

Our focus of treatment is to ensure quality of healing as well as a fully conditioned and safe return to physical activity and sport.
