Sudden Sports Injuries
Many injuries that occur during athletic performances are sudden. You see them occur when watching your favorite sports – a football player twists a knee or a hockey player pulls a groin muscle. These injuries usually are soft tissue injuries when a ligament or muscle is stretched or torn when the individual places extreme stress on a limb.
Sudden sports injuries usually cause extreme pain and may restrict movement. These injuries usually will require treatment and rehabilitation. Most strains and sprains can be resolved with non-surgical treatments, usually requiring pain and inflammation management and rehabilitation with physiotherapy options.
Repetitive Sports Injuries
Some sports injuries occur from repetitive stress on certain tendons, muscles or joints. Throwing, running, jumping and swinging all can put strain on specific areas, resulting in pain and restricted range of motion. Rotator cuff injuries, tennis/golfer’s elbow, jumper/runner’s knee and many types of tendonitis are caused by repetitive athletic movements.
The symptoms of these types of injuries usually begin slowly and become worse over time. Repetitive sports injuries may require treatments to relieve inflammation and pain, as well as rehabilitation. Most repetitive sports injuries respond well to conservative therapies such as anti-inflammatory medications or injections and rehab exercises to strengthen the surrounding tissues.
If you have a sports injury, sudden or repetitive, you can find relief with treatment or rehab.
