Treating Sports Injuries in Ottawa

Whether you’re an elite athlete or an intramural legend, sports injuries can occur at any given moment. Injuries can happen for a variety of reasons including: muscle imbalance, improper technique, trauma, overtraining, prior injuries, etc. Due to a higher level of performance, athletes require special attention as they put extra demand on their bodies, which can stress the joints, bones and muscles to the limit. Injured athletes need immediate care from a Physiotherapist to recover as fast as possible. Our team of professional Physiotherapists are highly experienced, and have provided top-quality sports Physiotherapy services to athletes from Team Canada to local sport leagues! Visit our clinic to see how passionate our physiotherapists are to help get you back to your A game!

Common Sports Injuries

Ligament Sprain

During impact, sudden change of direction, or accidental slips, your ligaments will try to protect your joints from permanent injuries. If the injury is severe enough, the ligament can sprain or eventually tear. Ligaments of the knee and ankle are the most common ligaments to injure during contact sports and in any sport that has a lot of quick movements.

Meniscus Tear

The meniscus is the impact absorbing cartilage in the knee, which is most often torn with an aggressive plant and twist movement. This type of injury can result in instability, knee locking and pain, and can be quite debilitating.

Hamstring Strain

Individuals who do a lot of sprinting, lunging or jumping can find themselves with a hamstring strain. The muscles and tendons that run from the back of the thigh to the knee can only stretch so far before they give out. Recovery time depends on the severity of the strain.

Shin Splints

Medial tibial stress syndrome, commonly referred to as “shin splints”, is pain that occurs in the lower legs due to repetitive tugging and inflammation of the muscles that insert on the shins. This is a common injury in athletes who engage in sports that involve a lot of running or uphill training.

Torn/Impinged Rotator Cuff

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles in the shoulder that controls and stabilizes the joint’s movement. When the rotator cuff is injured, the shoulder can become very painful, stiff and dysfunctional. Overhead athletes, such as baseball players, volleyball players, badminton players, tennis players and swimmers, are prone to this injury.

Groin Strain

Groin pulls happen when your inner thigh muscles are overstretched. Pain in the groin and the inside thigh are indicators that something is wrong. This injury is common in sports that require a lot of side-to-side movement or continuous changing of direction.

No matter what the injury, Kent Chiro-Med has the staff and expertise to help you improve your body function and mobility. Our team of chiropractors and physiotherapists will assess your situation and chart out a plan to restore you from your injury.

Sports Physiotherapy Services FAQs

We provide a 15 minutes complimentary consultation in our clinic. This is the perfect opportunity to visit our clinic, learn about our services, and have a quick discussion with your practitioner who will then be able to determine whether your injuries can be fixed with chiropractic and/or physiotherapy care.
We always take into account our athletes’ pain tolerance. Some athletes can handle intensive treatment while others require a couple of sessions before the treatments are well tolerated. We always establish a baseline tolerance with all of our patients. By providing that reference, our practitioners can monitor how their athletes respond after the first appointment of chiropractic or physiotherapy care. If soreness, achiness, redness and some mild bruising are well tolerated, practitioners are able to advance through their treatments’ intensity – always gradually. We always take into account our patients’ comfort level. Because the treatments can be intensive, we do not normally treat every injury at the first visit. This will allow two things: (1) proper recovery of the treated area in between appointments and (2) a chance to treat different areas on different days to allow the previously treated area to recover, maximising the chances of a faster and more efficient recovery.
Manual practitioners who treat athletes are required to focus on a lot of details when it comes to sports injuries. Our team of physiotherapists and chiropractors spend between 30-60 minutes on each athlete to properly address all their issues. By choosing both chiropractic and physiotherapy, athletes can rest assured that they will get back to their sport quickly and safely, as chiropractic care will manage their immediate pain and physiotherapy will ensure their exercise regimen matches their current status of recovery and progress. By getting the best of both worlds, our athletes report high satisfaction and happiness with this approach. If you are looking for athletic care in Ottawa, Ontario, please feel free to contact us to book an appointment.
Sports physiotherapists provide evidence-based advice on safe participation in sports and exercise. Furthermore, they encourage an active lifestyle as a means of improving and maintaining quality of life. The role of a sports physical therapist includes injury prevention and management for athletes across a broad range of ages and abilities. They also assist athletes in training and enhancing their performance.

The Society of Sports Therapists describes a sports physical therapist as a professional who prevents injuries by providing treatment. In addition to being trained in sports-specific rehabilitation, a sports physical therapist also helps patients to get back to their maximum degree of physical function, regardless of their age or current ability.

Absolutely amazing! I’m so glad that I found a place where I felt comfortable and Ramy does excellent work! This was my first time going to see a chiropractor so I was very nervous and skeptics, but they did not disappoint one bit! Excellent customer service and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t be happier with my experience! Read on Google

I was suffering from severe pain around my neck and down to my back for a year, which was caused by hard physical work and incorrect lifestyle. The pain had limited my activities considerably. Prior to me, my family had a very satisfactory experience with the Clinic, and were especially talking about Dr. Maryam Hassanzadeh's expertise, experience, and devotion to ... Read on Google

As an athlete, I've been seeing Ghaith for a hip impingement injury that was restricting me from sports/workouts. Ghaith helped me get back in the action! Its always a pleasure seeing him, as he's friendly & enthusiastic, he genuinely enjoys explaining the mechanics of the injury and discussing the big picture theory (which I love as a bit of a nerd & athlete). Thanks Ghaith & Kent Chiro-Med! Read on Google
