Sports Injuries

Sports injuries commonly occur in people participating in sporting events. However, in many cases, injuries can occur due to overuse, improper form and muscle weakness.

Physiotherapists at Premier Care Physiotherapy are skilled and experienced experts in prevention, diagnosis and rehabilitation ofsports injuries and musculoskeletal dysfunction. Luckily, the majority of sports injuries are minor and are manageable with proper icing and rest. Overuse syndromes such as tendonitis and bursitis or ligament sprains and muscle strains may require physiotherapy intervention. More severe cases such as ACL or rotator cuff tears may require surgery.
