Common Causes Of Sports Injuries
Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact or the application of a force on a singular or repetitive instance that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand.
The biggest risk factor for soft tissue injury is previous injury which goes a long way to explaining why it is reported 50% of sports injuries are preventable. At Physio4Wycombe we are qualified to assess acute and chronic sports injuries both traumatic or overuse types and providing expert management advice and treatment for their immediate care, return to playing and prevention of recurrence or subsequent injury.
Poor technique and structural abnormalities can contribute to risk factors of sustaining a sports injury. At Physio4Wycombe we are trained to deal with assessing risk factors for injury just as we are trained in prescribing rehabilitation programs to promote strength, flexibility, ideal biomechanics and postural control. Remember – trying to play before an injury is properly healed and rehabilitated can cause more damage, delay recovery and increase your risk of a subsequent injury.
