Common Sports Injuries seen at our Parramatta clinic:
The most common types of sports injuries include bruising, muscle sprains & strains, joint or ligament strains, fractures and dislocations. The areas of the body that are most often injured include the following:
- Head & Neck -Whether it’s constant headaches, a pinched nerve, a wry neck, or a sports-related injury, we can give you the exercises to follow to help alleviate your pain.
- Shoulder: tears to the rotator cuff or shoulder dislocations can occur in the shoulders due to various reasons such as over use of the shoulder muscles, falls or trauma. Shoulder injuries can occur through overuse or direct trauma.
- Arm & Hand – If you’ve broken your fall with your hands, or played a bad ball during a racket game, you may experience some hand or arm pain. Our team can help provide you with the knowledge and exercises you need to get back on track.
- Elbow: injuries usually involve prolonged and repetitive use of the elbow and wrist joints. Which can result in overuse injuries such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow
- Back – Back pain is the debilitating pain that can make even the simplest tasks such as getting up or walking very painful. We are committed to finding the root of your problem by providing accurate assessment and treatment for all back conditions.
- Hip & Groin – Hips and groins can be ‘pulled’ if no appropriate stretching is done beforehand. Additionally, we can alleviate pain and restore function following hip surgery.
- Knee – Knee injuries are amongst the most common sporting injuries which can lead to athletes being put out of their game. Our Parramatta Physiotherapy program is available to all those who have sustained a knee injury and need to get back on their feet. Cartilage and ligament tears are common in sports where sudden change in direction or external force is required
- Hamstring sprains: This type of injury occurs when the hamstring is over-stretched or over used. This results in tears to the muscle fibbers. Commonly seen in sports which require constant running, fast push offs, sprinting or sudden change in direction
- Calf Strain: Just like most other muscle strains, calf strain occurs when muscles are over-stretched or over used, which leads to tears in the muscle.
- Shin splints: Injury or pain over the shin area can be cause due to various reasons. Such as worn out or incorrect foot wear, tight calf muscles or flat feet.
- Ankle: Sprains are very common. The outside ligaments are the areas of the ankle that are damaged most often as the foot is pushed past it’s normal range.
- There’s nothing worse than going over on your ankle only to find out you’re going to be in pain for the next few weeks or months. We can help assess your gait and find out which area of your ankle has been injured before giving you the exercises you need to follow.
