Physio Blanchardstown, Physio Castleknock, Physio Tallaght
Exercise can be incredibly demanding on our bodies and injuries can occur at any point when engaging in sport or exercise. Some of the reasons why injuries happen are due to overtraining, improper form and technique, lack of conditioning or simply failing to warm up properly. This can result in strains, tears, sprains, and even broken bones. If you sustain a sports injury it is important to see a physiotherapist so that they can fully assess your injury and provide a suitable treatment plan.
How can Somerton Physiotherapy help your sports injury?
Physiotherapy can help if you have a sports injury as it incorporates a number of healing techniques and exercises which are designed to treat injuries and reduce pain and discomfort. These techniques help to release muscle tension and break down scar tissue while rehab exercises prescribed will help to prevent future injuries.
Our physiotherapists will not only look at your current injury but will also look at the mechanics of your body and determine how your injury may have happened in the first place. By correcting factors such as poor technique, posture, and muscle imbalances we can help prevent injuries from reoccurring in the future.
Seeing a sports physiotherapist is one of the most effective methods of managing any injury. We can provide in-clinic treatment to help relieve your pain. This goes hand in hand with rehabilitation exercises that are designed to guide you back to full fitness.
