Sports Injuries

Sports injuries happen to people in all walks of life


Engaging in sports is a great way to enjoy an active life, but injuries that occur can be serious and painful and limit your ability to take part in the activities you once enjoyed. Physiocare Physical Therapy is a place where you can find relief for new injuries or problems and pains that persist so that you can heal quickly and return to all the activities you enjoy.


Some sports injuries are immediately obvious, such as broken bones. Other times, physical damage occurs over time. The following are among the most common sports injuries that we treat at Physiocare:

Torn ligaments and tendons. Sports often involve dramatic stretches, twists, and jumps. Tissues in the knees, groin, shoulders, and other areas often tear or snap, sometimes requiring surgery. Physical therapy is an important part of recovery.

Tendonitis and arthritis. Sports that involve repetitive movements such as throwing a ball or swinging a racquet often result in repetitive stress conditions such as tendonitis and arthritis. These painful issues tend to occur in vulnerable areas such as the elbows, shoulders, ankles, knees, wrists, and hips, where muscles and joints can become inflamed.

Sprains and strains. As a result of involvement in sports, strains can easily occur, especially if the proper warm-up/stretching is not performed prior to certain activities. A sore lower back is very common. When lower back pain persists, our experts at Physiocare can help to rebuild flexibility and strength.

Breaks and fractures. After a break or fracture occurs, it’s important to get medical attention right away. When bones are recovering from these types of injuries, the muscles around them begin to weaken. Physical therapy is the best approach to re-strengthening after the bone heals.

The experts at Physiocare have experience and effective strategies for avoiding sports injuries and re-strengthening after injury has occurred.

After surgery, rehab therapy is an essential element in transitioning to restored functions. We help patients rebound from diminished range of movement and strength that results from the process of giving bones and other injuries time to heal.
