Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities or while exercising. They can happen due to an acute trauma (i.e. rolling an ankle while landing from a jump), or from overuse of a particular body part (i.e. shin pain while or after running). Other common causes of these types of injuries include poor training practices, improper equipment, poor physical fitness level before beginning an intensive exercise program/sport, or an inadequate warm up or stretching routine. Physiotherapists can treat sports injuries, and provide strategies and education to prevent injuries from happening and returning to sport or activity safely.
