Sport Injury Rehabilitation

Sport Injury Rehabilitation

Along with sports and activity, comes sports injuries.

Except for a few extreme cases, sports injuries are pretty common, and completely treatable with excellent results, if the right physiotherapy is initiated at the right time.

Depending on the sports involved (football, cycling, cricket, etc), and the level of injuries, Physiotherapists can recommend and execute the right treatment, which will help the patients to recover, and reclaim their freedom of movement.

Therapies such as exercise, aqua, joint mobilisation & soft tissue techniques, acupuncture etc can be employed, to treat the sports injuries successfully.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fascia is that thick tissue, which originates from the bottom surface of your heel bone, and extends along the sole of the foot, towards the toes.

When this Plantar fascia becomes inflamed or when it develops micro-tears, then that condition is known as Plantar Fasciitis. It causes disruption in your regular movement, and also causes pain.

There are two ways this condition of Plantar Fasciitis originates: traction on the thick tissues near your heel bone or compression injuries. This condition is very common in those sportspeople, who are required to run a lot in their sports, especially toe running, instead of heel running styles.

Poor foot biomechanics also result in this condition of Plantar Fasciitis.

With proper exercises and therapies, we can successfully treat Plantar Fasciitis and heal the tissues which have been inflamed and compressed.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulders are the most mobile joints in a human body, and subjected to a lot of movements, involving arms, neck and head. This is the reason shoulder pain is considered as one of the most common types of pains associated with Musculoskeletal regions.

This flexibility of shoulder is due to a small joint contact zone, and as per biomechanics, this makes the shoulder extremely unstable and hence mobile.

And this is the reason why shoulder pain is so common. The more it moves, the more are the chances of getting shoulder pain.

We at CureNow can treat all forms of shoulder pains such as Rotator Cuff, Bursitis Shoulder, Shoulder Dislocation (Instability), Frozen Shoulder, Fractures, Shoulder Arthritis and more.

Tennis Elbow

Made popular by cricket celebrity Sachin Tendulkar, Tennis Elbow is an injury to the muscles which extend the wrist and fingers. The exact location where tennis elbow happens is a bony bump situated on the outside of the elbow, the place where these muscles attach. It’s called lateral epicondyle.

While any pain happening in this region for less than 6 weeks is called acute or sub-acute tennis elbow, whereas if the pain persists for more than 6 weeks, then its chronic tennis elbow.

Some of the reasons why tennis elbow happens are:

  • Repeated usage for hand for a particular activity like hammering, typing, rolling chapatis and others.
  • Repeated gripping and/or wringing activities
  • Forearm muscle strength is poor, or very tight muscles
  • Poor technique in any sports, like tennis, from where this term originates

Ankle strain

Anyone can get an ankle sprain, infact, it is one of the most common reasons for consulting with Physiotherapists.

Ankle sprain happens when the ankle ligaments are overstretched, and it’s subjected to improper biomechanics such as a rolling ankle on unstable ground. It can also result when you plant your foot awkwardly while running or walking, or while landing unbalanced from a jump onto an unstable surface or uneven surface.

The severity of ankle sprains vary from case to case basis: From mild twisted ankle or rolled ankle sprain to severe rupture of ligaments, avulsion fractures or broken bones.

Proper physiotherapy with the right exercises can heal ankle sprain in a timely manner, and enable you to walk normally again.

Knee Pain

In the case of knee pain, it’s extremely necessary to start the treatment early, and consult with the expert physiotherapists, who have deep knowledge about this condition.

There are several reasons as to why knee pain can originate: It can arise from injuries related with soft tissues, such as ligament sprains, and muscle sprains. It can also originate from bone conditions which includes knee arthritis and Osgood Schlatter.

Biomechanics malfunctioning such as Patellofemoral syndrome is also seen as a reason for knee pain, so is the pain associated with sciatica.

Depending on the case and diagnosis, treatment for knee pain ranges from strengthening exercises to massage, mobilization technique or stretches and taping.
