How Physiotherapy Can Treat and Prevent Sports Injuries

How Physiotherapy Can Treat and Prevent Sports Injuries

Spring is here, which has a lot of us getting more active than we have been the past few months. This is great for our overall health; but can lead to sports injuries if we aren’t careful, which is why physiotherapy is so important!

Physiotherapy is essential when it comes to recovery from sports injuries. Most athletes wait until an injury occurs before seeking treatment, however a physiotherapist can also help you prevent these injuries from happening too!

When it comes to treating existing injuries, physiotherapy focuses on a custom-made and comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to you and your injury. From muscle strains to ligament sprains, dislocations and fractures, professional treatment will get you feeling better faster.

At The Right Move, we have lots of high quality treatment options to help with sports injuries as they happen such as:

Strengthening Exercises

Weak muscles are the consequence of inactivity after an injury; so strengthening exercises are a great way to grow and maintain the strength and function of your muscles.

Shockwave

When it comes to injured soft tissue, bone, heal, and joint pain, shockwave therapy is a great modern treatment option! This non-surgical treatment promotes accelerated recovery so you can get back to the things you love faster than traditional rehabilitation.

Dry Needling

Tension in the form of tight muscles are another consequence of inactivity after an injury and dry needling can help release this tension which will, in turn, also reduce pain.

Electrotherapy

Traditional therapy methods can help in the acute stages of pain (when the injury just happened). Tens, Interferential, and Ultrasound are modalities thought to help with circulation and tissue healing.

Manual Therapy

Hands on therapy works well for relaxing muscles in spasm and getting your joints moving freer; all the while reducing tissue adhesions and decreasing any swelling so you can move better.

 

Still, there is another key benefit of physiotherapy when it comes to sports injuries, which is injury prevention.

Physiotherapy is an important way to help prevent sports injuries from occurring; which is actually more beneficial to athletes in the first place! Having a registered physiotherapist that you trust, work well with, and you can depend on are key when it comes to injury prevention. This way, you can monitor your health/fitness and assess the need for strengthening potentially weak areas before injuries occur!

Whether you have an existing sports injury and need immediate physiotherapy treatment or are simply looking to maintain your muscle and joint health; we have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to help! For more information on how physiotherapy can help you or to book an appointment, give us a call at 613-384-3222 today!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me
    on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do
    you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem together with your web site in web explorer, would

    will pass over your excellent writing due to
    this problem.

    Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a
    blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated!

    Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I
    had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as
    yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand
    new to running a blog but I do write in my diary daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and
    feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    The most painful mistake I see new freelancers make is taking jobs at content mills, or other jobs with content mill prices, and get stuck doing those jobs long after they should have left.”
    It’s okay to take a job writing blog posts for 1 cent a word in order to build a portfolio, but once you’ve got a few good pieces from it, for the love of god get out! Use them to help you further your career, don’t let them use you.”

    Learning how to write a kick-ass freelance proposal will teach you a lot about positioning your value, highlighting your strengths and selling yourself as a premium service-provider to your clients.
    The biggest mistake first-time entrepreneurs tend to make is not asking for help OR not asking for the right help from the right people.”

    And a close second is not following up and nurturing those relationships when they do ask for help. There’s something that Tony Robbins always says about the importance of ‘standing on the shoulders of other giants’ and I think this is such an important thing for people to keep in mind.”
    Pretty much anything you are going to go through, someone else has already gone through. Pretty much any feeling you are going to have, someone else has already had. Any obstacle, any roadblock, ANYTHING! Someone has come up against them and figured out a way to get around them. Tap into that. Whether it’s reading a book, reaching out or shadowing someone, get help and then do it

    When investors tell you why they don’t like your pitch, they’re almost always lying. They’ll usually tell you that you’re too early, or you need more traction, or you need too much money, or you need too little money.”
    But if they really thought you had something brilliant, they wouldn’t let you out of their sight. They’re simply offering an excuse for not liking your company. Don’t walk away thinking that the problem is that you just aren’t a fit. You need to find out what’s really wrong with your story. Don’t count on investors to tell you. Get a few good, savvy mentors or advisors to tell you the truth.”

    First-time entrepreneurs pay too much attention to what other companies are doing without thinking for themselves.”
    Every company is unique and has an entirely different DNA. A particular strategy may not work for your company, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t work for mine and vice versa. My piece of advice is that you should always ask yourself: Why didn’t that strategy didn’t work for them, and will it work for me?”

    obviously like your website but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I
    to find it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will surely come again again.
