Common Sports Injuries We Treat
A common football injury because the hamstring is susceptible to strains or tears in high intensity sports.
Due to imbalances/weaknesses in hip abductors and glutes in addition to repetitive running.
Usually from high-speed activities such as sprinting, kicking, and sudden direction changes
Small cracks in the bone caused by repetitive force. Eg. feet in runners
Common in sports involving striking, tackling, throwing. Contributions from rotator cuff muscles, strength imbalances, thoracic mobility, inflammation, and impingements can play a role.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Due to repetitive motions of the wrist that adds pressure onto the carpal tunnel, and hence the median nerve.
Usually from sudden impact or gradual onset due to strength limitations.
The Role of a Sports Physiotherapist
Sports physiotherapists also play specific roles. These include:
We can assess the risk of injury associated with participation in a specific sport or physical activity. We inform and train athletes, coaches and other relevant members to prevent and reduce the occurrence and recurrence of specific injuries.
We have the skills to respond to an acute injury in different various contexts, such as during training, in game, or post game.
We use clinical reasoning and therapeutic skills to assess and diagnose sports-related injuries. Furthermore, we design, implement, assess and modify interventions that allow for a safe return to specific sport or physical activity.
We help enhance the athlete’s performance through examination and evaluation of their current performance. We can aid to optimise performance in a specific sport or in a particular movement, within a multidisciplinary team approach.
Promotion of a safe, active lifestyle
We work with a multidisciplinary team such as exercise physiologists, remedial massage, and dieticians to aid safe participation in physical activity. We provide evidence-based advice regarding the optimal activity or sport for the client as well as advice on the ways to minimise the risk of injury and promote health.
