Sports Injuries

sport injury treatment hamilton Athletic activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, though, it can lead to injury. Even regular, low-impact exercise can sometimes result in sore muscles or joints, or repetitive motion injuries.

Main Street Health is a leader in adopting a multi-disciplinary approach for the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. Our clinic offers a variety of therapies in one convenient location.

What are the most common sports-related injuries?

Some of the most common types of injuries in sport include:

  • fractures
  • groin injury
  • knee injuries
  • elbow injuries
  • ankle injuries
  • neck injuries
  • shoulder injuries
  • rotator cuff tears
  • hand or wrist injuries
  • head injuries (concussion)

These tend to be acute sports injuries. An acute injury has sudden onset due to specific trauma. For example, you might sprain your ankle if you step the wrong way while running.

Many athletes also experience chronic sports injuries, which build up over time.

Some common chronic injuries in sport include:

  • bursitis
  • tennis elbow
  • frozen shoulder
  • shoulder tendonitis
  • achilles tendonitis
  • rotator cuff tendonitis
  • repetitive strain injuries
  • chronic joint pain or sore muscles

The professional therapists at Main Street Health are experienced in treating all types of sports injuries. Book an assessment for diagnosis and treatment of your particular condition.
