Methods of Physiotherapy Treatment That We Use

In our sports injury clinic, our primary focus is on tailoring rehabilitation plans to the unique needs of each patient. Our team of licensed physiotherapists takes a personalized approach, designing exercise regimens that specifically address your individual requirements and areas of discomfort. These programs are carefully structured to promote your recovery and overall health through gradual progression.

We highly recommend that any prior injuries be evaluated by our experienced team to help safeguard against potential future issues, such as arthritis or the formation of scar tissue. Our physiotherapists collaborate closely with a multidisciplinary group of therapists, incorporating a diverse range of techniques including physiotherapy, osteopathic methods, naturopathic therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy. This collaborative effort enables us to deliver more effective and dependable services to our patients.

Our treatment protocols encompass manual therapy to effectively manage pain and enhance tissue adaptations, and we ensure that interventions are administered at the right time and in the appropriate proportion to achieve optimal outcomes.

Rehabilitation programs for common sports injuries include:

Sprains: Sprains occur when ligaments (the tough bands of tissue that connect bone to bone) are stretched or torn. Ankle sprains are particularly common.

Strains: Strains involve the stretching or tearing of muscles or tendons. Hamstring strains and groin strains are examples of this.

Fractures: Broken bones can happen in various sports. Common fractures include wrist fractures, collarbone fractures, and stress fractures in bones like the shin.

Concussions: Concussions are traumatic brain injuries caused by a blow to the head. They are common in contact sports like football and hockey.

Bursitis: Bursitis is the inflammation of bursae, small sacs filled with fluid that cushion joints. It can occur in various joints, often due to repetitive motions.

Shin Splints: Pain along the shinbone, often caused by overuse, is common in activities like running and jumping.

Golfer’s Elbow: Golfer’s elbow causes pain in the elbow, typically located distal to the medial epicondyle of the humerus. It results from repetitive overuse injuries.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Also known as runner’s knee, it involves pain around the kneecap and is often seen in runners and cyclists.

Dislocations: Dislocations happen when the ends of two connected bones are forced apart, usually due to a sudden impact. The shoulder and finger joints are often susceptible.

Tennis Elbow: Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, is a condition resulting from inflammation of forearm muscles that connect to the elbow. It can occur due to repetitive movements in sports or workplace activities.

Achilles Tendon Rupture: A complete tear of the Achilles tendon, usually resulting from a sudden, forceful movement, such as jumping.

MCL Tears: The medial collateral ligament (MCL) in the knee can be injured due to twisting or direct impact, often seen in sports like football and skiing.

Groin Pull: A strain of the muscles located in the inner thigh, common in sports with quick directional changes like soccer and hockey.

Plantar Fasciitis: Pain and inflammation in the heel of the foot, frequently seen in runners and athletes who put significant pressure on their feet.

Post-Operative Injuries: Athletes frequently experience injuries that require surgical interventions, such as:

  • Meniscus Tears: Surgical intervention may be necessary for meniscus tears, which affect the C-shaped discs that cushion the knee.
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries: Athletes involved in sports with overhead arm movements may require surgery for rotator cuff injuries.
  • Tendonitis: Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. It often affects the shoulder, elbow (tennis elbow), and Achilles tendon (Achilles tendonitis).
  • ACL/PCL Reconstructions: Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) often require surgical reconstruction. These ligaments are crucial for knee stability and mobility.

It’s important to remember that preventive measures, proper training, warm-up routines, and adequate protective gear can significantly reduce the risk of these injuries in sports. Additionally, seeking medical attention and proper rehabilitation is crucial for a full recovery if an injury does occur.
