Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact, or the application of forces that exceed what the body part can structurally withstand. Our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists specialise in what is appropriate at each stage of your healing.

Common injuries we treat include sprains, strains, contusions, joint injuries, ligament injuries and concussions.

Investigation is important, as leaving an injury untreated can have far more severe consequences.

Subsequent instabilities and restrictions that are commonly present following sports injuries have been found to be a strong predictor of future injury in the same and/or opposite limb.

It is important to screen the adjacent structures and joints clearing all restriction left from the inflammation process. This approach allows us to alleviate compensatory movement patterns.

Sports injuries can reduce muscle strength and size which needs to be addressed with targeted science and evidence based exercises. It is also possible to reduce the impact of muscle decline throughout the healing process.

It is important to cross reference your function against normal function so we can determine what you need to return back to sport and activity in a safe and durable manor.
