Sports Injuries

Physiotherapists are experts in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sporting injuries.
They can help return you to your best level of function after an injury.

A physiotherapist may use the following techniques:

  • ‘hands on’ techniques such as massage, joint mobilisation
  • taping to support an area or facilitate normal movement
  • rehabilitation exercises and advice, taking into account individual goals and history

Physiotherapists also have a role in injury prevention.
There are several injuries (including ankle sprains, knee injuries and hamstring strains) for
which the risk can be significantly reduced if a specific injury prevention program is used.

These programs are typically not time intensive and can actually improve sporting performance as well.

Common sporting injuries:

  • joint sprains— knee, ankle, shoulder and finger injuries
  • muscle strains—hamstring, calf, quadriceps
  • tendon injuries—achilles, patella and gluteal tendon pain
  • bony overuse injuries—such as ‘shin splints’ or stress fractures
  • rehabilitation from surgery —knee, shoulder or ankle arthroscopies or reconstruction

If you are suffering from a sports related injury, it is important to have your condition assessed at Cobram Physio.
