Sports Injury Treatment

 

Athletes are highly susceptible to injuries, strains, and sore muscles from rigorous, physical activity. Living an active lifestyle means there is little time to be slowed down by pain. Pain solutions help with your range of motion and discourage the potential for future injuries.

 

Sports-related ailments range from ligament sprains to muscle strains.

 

Bands that connect the joint’s bones that stretch past their limit become strained and tear muscle fibres.

 

Sports injuries are prevented by a proper warm-up to get the blood flowing through the muscles before engaging in intensive, physical activity. Remember, frequently stretch - even while taking a break – to keep your muscles loose. If you’re stationary for a lengthy period, your muscles tense up and require stretching before resuming activity.

 

How to Treat Sports Injuries

Minor tears and strains frequently heal on their own, but a serious athletic injury (ACL tear) can requires surgery and physiotherapy.

 

Always protect against injuries and ice immediately after it occurs to reduce inflammation. Applying compression and elevating the injured area reduces the swelling.
