Sports Injuries

Playing sport of any type is beneficial in many ways but there is always the risk of an injury occurring especially if it is a fast paced competitive sport. These may occur due to an accident or improper technique resulting in acute disabling injuries. Some injuries are caused by an improper warm up or lack of stretching.

The most common sports injuries are:-

  • Dislocations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries (shoulder)
  • Fractures
  • Repetitive movements
  • Shin bone pain

If one experiences any of these or suspect that damage has been done, activities must be immediately stopped as further activity can cause increased damage resulting in a longer recovery period and in some cases may cause irreversible damage.

Reasons for sports injuries include:-

  • Weak muscles
  • Fatigue
  • Poor posture
  • Incorrect technique
  • Abnormal movements and alignment
  • Over use of the muscles
  • Past injuries
  • Muscle imbalances

If you have a suspected sports injury of nay type then it is recommended to see a physiotherapist for an initial assessment so that further measures can be taken to protect the area of complaint and to prevent further injury from occurring. If you have an ongoing sports injury that occur through sporting activity and restricts participation time then the physiotherapist can assess and recommend preventive measures in order for you to participate to the highest standard possible whilst reducing the chances of injury.

Treatments for sports injuries include:-

  • Pain management
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Ultrasound
  • Strengthening exercise
  • Movement analysis
  • Functional exercises relating to the specific sport
  • Correct technique execution
