Common Causes Of Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are commonly caused from direct impact, or the application of a force on a singular or repetitive instance. Forces greater than the body part can structurally withstand.
The greatest risk factor for soft tissue injury is previous injury. This fact goes a long way to explaining why it is reported that 50% of sports injuries are considered preventable.

Our physios strive to provide expert level sports injuries physiotherapy management.
