Sporting Injury Treatment

Sporting injuries can have a major impact on the day-to-day enjoyment of life

We all know how important being active on a regular basis is for our health, but unfortunately on occasions this can lead to injury.Sporting injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, from not warming up properly and not having the right equipment, to over-stretching yourself or having an accident. Whether you’ve experienced a sudden injury or it has occurred overtime, it can have a major impact on the day-to-day enjoyment of life.

Sporting injuries can affect a variety of different parts of the body, depending on the demands of a particular sport, from muscles, bones and ligaments, to joints, cartilage and tendons. A common injury, such as tendonitis, or inflammation of the tendon, can be the result of the tearing or straining in tendons. Runners are often affected by the Achilles tendon, at the back of the ankle. Tennis players or golfers can experience what’s known as ‘tennis elbow’ or ‘golfers elbow’, a painful condition caused by the overuse of the muscles and tendons in the forearm and around the elbow joint. Semi-professional and professional football players are often affected by knee injuries, such as torn anterior cruciate ligaments, occurring when a players loses balances and twists their knee into an awkward position.

Recent clinical studies have highlighted that there is positive evidence to support the effectiveness of treatments such as mobilisation with exercise for tennis elbow. (Source: The “Effectiveness of Manual Therapies: UK Evidence Report 2009” commissioned by the General Chiropractic Council)
