Sports injuries are a common occurrence in the sporting world; sporting injuries ranging from a sprained ankle to a dislocated shoulder or even a complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are common. Sporting injury treatment can take a number of different forms, often depending on the degree of the sporting injury.
Sporting injuries are often caused by poor training practices, including both over-training or under-training. Overuse sports injuries, such as tennis elbow or runner's knee, are generally the result of repeated overuse of the muscles and tendons surrounding the joint. Traumatic sports injuries, such as muscle strains, often result from attempting sport or activity that you haven't properly trained for. Environmental factors such as equipment and playing surfaces can also play a large factor in contributing to the onset of sports injury.
Ideally, it is best you seek treatment for your injury by a sports injury physiotherapist while it is in the acute phase (the first 48 to 72 hours). This allows the physiotherapist to accurately diagnose the injury and formulate a treatment plan to have you back to your sport in the quickest timeframe possible.
