Capalaba Physio Sports Injuries Treatment

Sports Injury

At Capalaba Physiotherapy Centre, the physiotherapists have undergone extra study in the field of Sports Injuries Physiotherapy. They have a comprehensive knowledge of biomechanics, tissue injury and healing.

Most injuries at sport can be effectively treated, managed and even prevented by your physiotherapist.

Common Injuries

  • Bruises
  • Ligament sprains
  • Joint injuries
  • Over-use injuries

What Goes Wrong

Most sporting injuries are a result of a direct blow (bruise or contusion) or an indirect force like a twist (sprains, strains, tears). Some injuries are due to overuse stresses (tendinitis, stress fractures).

How can you minimise injury?

  • Correct warm up and warm down procedures.
  • Protective strapping or bracing.
  • Correct footwear and sporting equipment.
  • Specific conditioning for our particular sport.
  • Good aerobic fitness.
  • Appropriate rehabilitation.

Getting back into action

Physiotherapy treatment will enable you to return safely to your sporting activity more quickly than just ‘rest and see what happens’

Before you can safely return to your sport it is essential to regain strength, mobility, balance, and coordination. Your physiotherapist will assess these areas and show you how to improve them.

So, if you have hurt yourself at sport come and see our physiotherapists and massage therapist.
