Sometimes sports can cause excessive overuse of muscles, joints, and bones—resulting in pain, weakness, and other injuries. Sports Injuries are injuries sustained during sports or exercise, typically involving musculoskeletal injuries and/or pain.
Common sports injuries causing patients pain and requiring medical treatment include muscle/tendon strains, shin splints, muscle sprains, joint injuries (i.e. knee, rotator cuff), fractures, dislocations, swollen muscles, plantar fasciitis, hip bursitis. If these types of symptoms and conditions are left untreated, the pain and injury often worsen.
These types of injuries often require Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation to cope with pain and rebuild strength and use of the affected area. Different types of physiotherapy used to treat Sports Injuries include soft-tissue therapy and Myo fascial stretch for pain relief and rehabilitation, along with the use of specialized equipment to aid recovery. This includes weight lifting/strength training, along with Shockwave Therapy, a multidisciplinary device that uses an acoustic wave to promote regeneration, lowering recovery times. This is available without charge as part of our comprehensive sports injury treatment programs.
