Whether you are an elite athlete or a “Sunday walker” sports injuries can be a common and frustrating problem. The good news is that most sports injuries can be effectively treated by your physiotherapist. Proper sports injury management, rehabilitation, and advice can be sought from the expertise of our physiotherapists.
Many sports injuries are caused from overuse and over training, such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow where the player pushes their body to the limit. Sports injuries can also occur due to under training or poor training practices. Not having an adequate warm up and warm down can also lead to many injuries, as the body is not prepared for the exercise.
Common sports injuries that we treat include:
- Muscle strains – eg calf, hamstring
- Shoulder tendonitis / impingement / instability
- Hip and knee injuries – meniscus tears, ACL rehabilitation
- Tendon injuries
- Ankle sprains / instability
- Back pain
- Join or ligament srains
We go beyond the basics in assessment and treatment. Regardless of your sports level, an athlete’s intense workout schedule and performance requirements can place undue strain on muscles, joints and ligaments. We regularly help athletes recover from injury and provide exercise education to regain mobility, strength, and stability as well as address underlying causal factors such as biomechanics, agility, power and injury prevention and management.
At Wisdom Physiotherapy, we are qualified and trained in the assessment and treatment of sports injuries. We would love to work with you to get you back to the sport you love as quick as possible!
