Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are very loosely defined as injuries caused whilst participating in or training for a particular sport.

That’s where our sports injuries clinic comes in…

Injuries can be split into 2 categories: contact and non-contact. The majority of these injuries can occur without any sporting context at all but they are more common in a sporting context.

The main thing that makes sports injuries different is the high level of activity that the injured party wants to return to. This is where specialist sports physiotherapists at Active Physiotherapy’s sports injury clinic set ourselves apart from the rest. With extensive experience in treating patients from a variety of different sports we are well placed to treat and rehabilitate any sportsperson back to full competition fitness. Whether recreational, amateur or professional, we have the skills and experience you need to get back to sport.

Contact Injuries

Contact injuries in sport are mainly the result of trauma caused by another person or object. They can be as minor as bruising or as serious as a fracture, dislocation or spinal injury. Minor traumatic injuries usually heal up quite quickly e.g. dead leg. However, the early intervention of physiotherapy with the P.R.I.C.E regime, electrotherapy, correct exercise progression, Kinesio taping and correct activity avoidance can speed up recovery even more.

Non-Contact Injuries

Injuries that fall into this category are most commonly muscular strains, ligamentous sprains or tendinopathies. These are common injuries in both contact and non-contact sport and make up the majority of sports injuries that we see in the clinic. These injuries can be treated extremely effectively with progressive mobility and strengthening exercises, hands-on manual therapy techniques (including forms of massage), electrotherapy and Kinesio taping when required. Although these injuries can be easily treated, they should be highly respected and treated appropriately straight away. The acute ankle sprain that is not correctly treated and rehabilitated can result in re-injury and chronic instability. At Active Physiotherapy, we believe that the re-injury of these structures is largely preventable if you have effective rehabilitation and ensure ongoing conditioning of the area.
