Different Types of Sports Injuries

Recreational physical activities and competitive athletics account for a significant number of injuries, and these tissue injuries can be classified as macro-traumatic and micro-traumatic.
Macro-traumatic injuries are usually due to a strong force, and are common in contact sports like football and rugby. Micro-traumatic injuries are chronic injuries resulting from overuse of a muscle, joint, ligament or tendon. Our physical therapists are skilled at treating micro and macro-traumatic conditions such as chronic injuries occurring from sports, ACL tears, shoulder dislocation or separation, rotator cuff injuries, fractures and many more.

Assessment and Diagnosis

The ultimate goal of the rehabilitation process is to limit the extent of the injury, reduce or reverse the impairment and functional loss, and prevent or eliminate altogether the health condition. During the initial assessment, your physiotherapist will run a range of different tests to ascertain the area and level of injury, and then create a treatment plan that fits your unique requirements.

Treatment Sessions

Depending on the type of injury you have sustained, your treatment will include a number of parts which may include strengthening and mobilisation exercises, pain relief techniques and functional skills. Our specialist physiotherapists will work with you to provide a thorough rehabilitation programme which will ensure a quick recovery, restoring full function and strengthening weakened muscle groups so that the risk of reinjury is minimised.
