How do Sports Injuries occur?
Sports injuries happen for a number of reasons - landing awkwardly, overtraining, poor physical conditioning, receiving a hard tackle, overstretching or coming back too early from a previous injury. Whatever the reason, it is important that the injury is managed properly before returning to full sports activity.
Common Sports Injuries include:
Overuse injuries and stress fractures
Muscle tears, tendon and ligament sprains
Knee, ankle and foot injuries
Shoulder injuries, tennis/golfer elbow, hand and wrist pain
What is involved in treating a Sports Injury?
Taking into consideration your the demands of your sport, along with a full functional assessment, the cause of the injury can be identified and an adequate Physical Therapy Treatment and a Functional Rehabilitation plan specific to your needs can be implemented.
The length of time needed to fully recover and rehabilitate the player or athlete depends on the nature and severity of the injury. This Sports Injury Treatment philosophy will help to get you back competing in the most efficient timeframe possible, while at the same time, greatly reducing the risk of the injury happening again.
