Why Sports Injury Specialists are Necessary
Governed by the College of Physiotherapists in Ontario, Mississauga sports injury specialists are professionals in the field of rehabilitation, treatment, diagnosis and prevention of musculoskeletal sports injuries. All physiotherapists within Canada must first obtain a Bachelor’s degree followed by a Master’s degree in physical therapy. Because sports injuries are much different than injuries that occur every day, a knowledgeable therapist is needed to address any problems that have occurred due to physical activities.
Athletes are known to put a lot of strain on their body and push their muscles, joints and bones to the absolute limit. This can result in major issues that require extensive physical treatment and rehabilitation. Our Mississauga sports injury specialists complete a full-body assessment so that they are able to make a comprehensive treatment plan. Upon assessment, our therapists may recommended further investigation, such as an x-ray, MRI, ultrasound and other scans and testing to make sure you’re getting the correct treatment.
There are many different injuries that athletes and athletic individuals can get. However, the most common sports injuries include:
- Shin splints
- Knee injuries (Tear in the ACL, patellofemoral syndrome)
- Sprained ankle
- Pulled groin
- Strained hamstring
- Tennis elbow
While these are the most common injuries, we also treat a wide range of other injuries including stress fractures, neck injuries, back injuries, chronic pain and much more. All of these injuries range from mild to severe, and can cost athletes some major down time.
Mississauga sports injury specialists work with clients on a treatment plan to reduce pain and promote healing so that they can get back to their everyday activities sooner rather than later. We understand that taking time out from training, competing or playing sports can set progress back significantly. That’s why we want to make sure that we’re giving you the best treatment option available for a speedy recovery. Not only that, but we give you the knowledge and tools you need to prevent further injury in the future.
