People can sustain acute sports injuries where there is a specific mechanism of injury. These include ankle ligament sprains, like if you roll your ankle. Shoulder or knee dislocation often resulting from a tackle or falling. Cartilage injuries resulting from twisting injuries when the body twists but the foot gets stuck on the ground.
People also sustain sports injuries through repetition of abnormal or excessive load on a specific region of the body. When there is no obvious mechanism of injury to the body and the pain just progressively develops it’s important to have a full assessment. We need to identify if there are any underlying issues such as a stiff joint, weak muscles or poor mobility of the nerves that are responsible for the pain. Muscle and joint pain is often associated with a sudden increase in training volume. This can include increases in running speed, duration of training or an increase in how often the training/sports activity takes place.
There are lots of different types of sports injuries. Check out the list below to see some of the most common ones that physiotherapy is effective in treating.
