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.

Common Sports Injuries in Ottawa

Sports Physiotherapy For Ligament Sprain

Ligaments of the knee and ankle are the most common ligaments to injure during contact sports. During impact, sudden change of direction, or accidental slips, your ligaments will try to protect your joints. If the injury is severe enough, the ligament can sprain or eventually tear.

Sports Physiotherapy For 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.

Sports Physiotherapy For 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.

Sports Physiotherapy For Shin Splints

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

Sports Physiotherapy For Torn/Impinged Rotator Cuff

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles in the shoulder that controls and stabilizes the joint’s movement. Overhead athletes, such as baseball players, volleyball players, badminton players, tennis players and swimmers are at an increased risk of injuring their rotators.

Sports Physiotherapy For 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.

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.

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.
