Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Being an athlete means caring for your body which is essential to your daily life..
Some sports injuries occur suddenly and acutely. Football, rugby, skiing and other high-impact sports feature falls and collisions that can jolt the musculo-skeletal system severely. Improperly warmed-up tissues are also subject to acute injuries, including torn muscles, sprained tendons and stretched ligaments. But even if you play a relatively low-impact sport, injuries can sneak up on you slowly but surely. Poor muscle tone, improper technique and/or unbalanced musculo-skeletal alignment can all contribute to a category of damage known as overuse injuries. A misalignment can cut off the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. These communication breakdowns can lead to serious health issues and injury.
Overuse injuries typically occur when one particular joint is subjected to excessive strain over a long period of time, allowing small tears and scarring to form within the tissues. Such injuries includes:
Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow
Runner's knee and related knee pain
Plantar fasciitis (heel and foot inflammation)
