Sports Injuries

Sports injuries and commonly the result of overuse, direct impact or the body’s inability to withstand an external force. The sports injury that will result as a consequence will either be acute or chronic, both of which may require assessment by our experienced practitioners if pain persists.

Chronic injuries are usually the result of overusing a particular muscle group and related joints, as opposed to rolling your ankle causing immediate pain associated with an acute injury.

The type of sports injuries we see regularly are: Ankle sprains, Achillies tendonitis, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, knee joint injury, runners knee, stress fractures, groin pain.

To avoid the potential development of sporting injuries we suggest working with our APSS practitioners to assess running technique or relevant technique to determine if there are any physiological weaknesses that may result in or cause injury.
