Common causes of sports injuries are:
- Direct Impact
- Incorrect technique
- Weakness in muscles
- Wearing and use of incorrect equipment
- Application of force greater than the body part can withstand
- Abnormal movement patterns (incorrect biomechanics)
Our physiotherapists all have a passion for sport and understand your need to get back performing to the best of your ability.
No matter the severity of your sports injury physiotherapy should be started day one of an injury. On day one of an injury our physiotherapists will assess the injury and provide advice on management in the acute phase. This can include immobilising the injury, wearing taping to support the injury, changing your gait to prevent secondary injury or assessing if you should weight bear on the injury.
