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: Spinal and joint mobilization techniques to correct joint alignment, improve joint mechanics and prevent compensatory stress. 
  • Massage Therapy Techniques: To promote healing, regain muscle length and 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.
  • Taping:
    Can assist in supporting the injured area thereby decreasing pain, spasm and swelling.  It can also help to improve pain free mobility and function in the healing stages of the injury.
  • Shockwave Therapy: 
    Shockwave Treatment is a non surgical, non-invasive treatment that involves the delivery of high energy sound waves to affected areas of the body to trigger the body’s own natural repair mechanisms and stimulate healing. It is a safe and effective treatment option. The recovery period is shorter than traditional invasive surgery and the procedure eliminates many of the risks associated with traditional surgery. Generally 3 treatments are advocated with 1 week between treatments. Available only at our Clayton Heights 188th st Location
