Sports Injuries Physiotherapy
Injured athletes will greatly benefit from the application of our hands-on method
Despite its many health benefits, golf, tennis and football are often responsible for various sports
injuries, i.e. tendon sprain, muscle strain or bone fractures. Sports injuries particularly affect those
who overdo or who do not properly train or warm up.
Using gifted hands-on work, we accelerate physical recovery at an immense pace. Injured athletes
will greatly benefit from the application of our precise hands-on method, and thus return to the
sport much quicker than the conventional methods.
Experience this original treatment method for your injuries, and witness your speedy recovery.
Common Conditions Treated
Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper
equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm-up and stretching.
● Golf Injuries to lower back, knee, shoulder, wrist and hand
● Muscle Strain, Ligament/Tendon sprain
● Knee Injuries, including Runner’s knee, Jumper’s knee, Osgood–Schlatter
● Compartment Syndrome
● Shin Splints
● Achilles Tendon Injuries
● Post-operation complications, including muscle tightness, joint stIffness or pain
What to expect at the clinic
Before any action is taken we will assess your condition, diagnose the symptom, help you
understand what’s wrong, and identify the cause of an injury. We advise individual on how to avoid
similar injuries in the future and discuss treatment plan. Treatment methods include manual therapy,
therapeutic exercise, taping and use of aids, e.g. splints.
Single session of hands-on treatment may suffice for minor injuries. On the other hand, a series of
treatment sessions may be beneficial for some conditions to evaluate your progress at regular
intervals, and thus modify treatment when necessary.
General Causes of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries are caused by trauma of different degree. For simplification they are largely divided into two categories, i.e. traumatic injuries, caused by large forces (macrotrauma), and overuse syndromes, caused by repetitive microtrauma.
Acute traumatic injuries are common in athletics and attract the most publicity and research. This is because the cause of the injury can be pinpointed, making it easier to define the injury and search for an appropriate treatment.
The frequency of traumatic injuries varies greatly between sports. Contact sports, such as football, ice hockey, team handball, wrestling, and rugby, tend to have higher rates of traumatic injuries.
The cause and severity of a traumatic injury are usually obvious. The athlete will usually experience rapid onset of pain, and swelling will begin to develop but typically requires several hours to reach its maximum. For this reason, the best time to examine a traumatic injury is immediately after it has occurred, before the swelling makes the athlete unable to tolerate the pain associated with exploration of the injured area.
Overuse syndromes are difficult to diagnose and treat. These injuries are becoming increasingly common as both participation in sport in general and the intensity and duration of training increase.
Overuse injuries are generally caused by repetitive overloading, resulting in microscopic injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Tissues can withstand great loads but there is a critical limit to this capacity, which varies greatly between individuals and according to the frequency of load.
Tissues may be made more susceptible to injury by intrinsic factors such as malalignment of the leg, muscle imbalance, and other anatomical problems, and extrinsic factors such as training errors, faulty technique, incorrect equipment and surfaces and poor conditions.
What to bring to your consultation
It is important to provide us with relevant documents regarding your present conditions, i.e. previous reports, X-ray, scans, referral letters and a list of medications that you take.
Please be advised to wear comfortable clothes as appropriate, i.e. shorts, t-shirts and/or running shoes, prior to attending to the clinic. It enables us to conduct effective assessment and treatment for you.
