Sports Injuries

Welcome to our Sports Injuries section at Klinica Physiotherapy, Here, you’ll find valuable information about common sports injuries and how physiotherapy can help you recover and get back in the game. Our experienced physiotherapists specialize in sports-related injuries and are here to guide you through the rehabilitation process.

Injuries we treat:

Ankle Sprains: Ankle sprains are one of the most common sports injuries, occurring when the ligaments in the ankle are stretched or torn. Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in treating ankle sprains by reducing pain, restoring joint mobility, and improving strength and stability through exercises and targeted therapies.


Knee Injuries: Knee injuries, such as ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears, meniscus tears, and patellofemoral pain syndrome, are prevalent among athletes. Physiotherapy aims to strengthen the muscles around the knee, enhance flexibility, and improve balance to promote optimal knee function and prevent future injuries.


Shoulder Injuries: Shoulder injuries, such as rotator cuff tears, shoulder impingement, and dislocations, can significantly impact an athlete’s performance. Our physiotherapists employ various techniques, including manual therapy, exercises, and modalities like ultrasound and electrical stimulation, to alleviate pain, restore range of motion, and enhance shoulder stability.


Hamstring Strains: Hamstring strains occur when the muscles at the back of the thigh are stretched or torn. Physiotherapy for hamstring strains involves a combination of stretching, strengthening exercises, and progressive rehabilitation protocols to aid in healing and prevent re-injury.


Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow: Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) are overuse injuries that affect the tendons in the forearm. Physiotherapy treatments for these conditions may include stretching, strengthening exercises, manual therapy, and ergonomic modifications to reduce pain and restore function.


Concussions: Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries commonly associated with contact sports. Our physiotherapists employ a comprehensive approach to concussion management, including rest, gradual return-to-play protocols, balance training, vision exercises, and cognitive rehabilitation, to help athletes safely recover and prevent long-term complications.


Shin Splints: Shin splints are characterized by pain along the tibia (shin bone) and are often seen in runners and athletes involved in high-impact activities. Physiotherapy treatment for shin splints involves identifying contributing factors, such as

muscle imbalances and running technique, and implementing appropriate interventions like orthotics, strengthening exercises, and gait analysis.


Stress Fractures: Stress fractures are small cracks in the bone caused by repetitive stress and are commonly seen in athletes participating in running, jumping, or dancing activities. Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain, promote bone healing, and address contributing factors through a combination of rest, modified activities, and gradual return-to-sport programs.

Remember, early intervention and proper rehabilitation are key to recovering from sports injuries and minimizing the risk of re-injury. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.
