Playing a sport is a great way to exercise and improve your health; however it comes with the potential for injury. The sport injury sustained depends on many factors, such as the sport involved, skill level, and age. According to Statistics Canada, two thirds of all injuries sustained by teenagers are related to playing a sport. High contact sports are more likely to cause severe traumatic injuries such as major sprains, strains, dislocations, and fractures. Other sports, such as running, tennis, and dance are more likely to cause repetitive stress injuries. These are often the result of overtraining, muscle imbalance, and poor technique. The more common overuse injuries are plantar fasciitis, shin splints, patella-femoral syndrome, shoulder tendinitis, and tennis elbow. Irrespective of your age and injury, The Edge Sport Physical Therapy Inc can help you get back to the sport you love to play.
Following a sports injury, a thorough assessment is imperative for an accurate diagnosis. The severity and type of injury will determine the most appropriate treatment at the different time frames of soft tissue healing.
