SPORTS INJURIES TREATMENT IN MISSISSAUGA, ETOBICOKE, OAKVILLE & BURLINGTON

Sports Injury ClinicGetting exercise by participating in sports is highly encouraged, but sometimes injuries can happen that may slow you down or keep you out of the game completely. At PhysioNow, we offer athletic physiotherapy for whatever your sports injury may be. We offer personalized treatment for athletes so you can get back into play as quickly and as safely as possible!

For athletes, there are many types of sports injuries that can occur. For example, this may be due to accidents, improper or ill-fitting gear, insufficient warm-ups, bad training practices, or inadequate strength and conditioning. These injuries can include sprains and strains, of tendons, ligaments and muscles, rotator cuff injuries, shin pain, knee problems, fractures, dislocations and more. Luckily, athletic physiotherapy is equipped to deal with all sorts of sport injuries.

Sports Injury TreatmentWhen you are injured during a sports activity, it’s important to stop playing as to not increase your injury. Properly stretching and strengthening the injured area while giving it time to heal is the best way to treat your current injury and will also help you avoid future injuries.

Relieving pain and reducing swelling are the first steps on the road to recovery, but sometimes our bodies need a bit more than that to return to their pre-injury strength and flexibility. That’s where the trained experts at PhysioNow come in! Through athletic physiotherapy, massage, and sports therapy, we can help you recover from any sports injury.

Neck Injuries

neckinjuriesOne of the most common types of sport injuries, neck problems can be highly debilitating and affect your ability to participate in sport. They can be caused by a number of things including whiplash, disc herniations, ligament injuries, and degenerative changes in the joints. Regardless of the cause, they often take some time to heal. Whether you are experiencing stiffness, numbness, or sharp pains, the best solution is guided exercises and stretches designed to carefully relax these tense muscles. For athletes engaged in high contact and fast sports, concussions are a major risk. Engaging in proactive strengthening of the neck musculature can be extremely helpful in preventing or lessening the impact of future injuries and concussions.

Back Injuries

back-injuriesFor athletes or individuals starting a sport, many may experience back pain, especially in the lower back when they make sudden changes to their level of activity and exercises. Our core muscles have to work extremely hard during many sports activities and can be easily strained after long periods of inactivity. Severe back pain can make it hard to sit, bend over and can have a serious impact on your quality of life as well as your sport. At PhysioNow, we offer athletic physiotherapy for your sport injury to get you playing and feeling better.

Shoulder Injuries

shoulder-injuriesMany sports are demanding on the shoulder, increasing the risk of rotator cuff and AC joint injuries, dislocations, sprains or strains. A common area for sports injuries, shoulders often take longer times to heal on their own and can be surprisingly debilitating. For athletes, a healthy and resilient shoulder may be the key to success in their sport. Learn how to keep your shoulder strong or rehabilitate a shoulder injury by visiting our office for athletic physiotherapy!

Knee Injuries

knee-injuriesSport-related knee injuries are extremely common. For example, ACL, MCL, LCL, and meniscal injuries are most often seen for sports injuries. They may even require surgical repair, making post-surgical rehabilitation a priority. Our physical therapists are trained to thoroughly assess the knee joint. For athletes, we will cater to the demands of your sport and create a personalized treatment plan to get you back as soon as possible. Additionally, custom knee braces, or off the shelf bracing is readily available at the clinic. Come and see us today!

Elbow Injuries

elbow-injuriesTennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are both common sport injuries caused by overuse of the muscles and tendons surrounding the elbow. Tennis, golf, and other racquet sports place high forces on the forearm and elbow, relying on repetitive motions which can cause stress injuries to the area. Sports physiotherapy is an effective treatment for these stubborn areas, try PhysioNow!

Ankle Injuries

ankle-injuriesThe ankle is probably the part of the body that we see the most sport injuries to including rolled ankles, sprains, and fractures. Additionally, once it has been injured once, it is extremely vulnerable to future injuries without proper rehabilitation. For athletes, strengthening the ankle muscles and retraining the proprioceptive fibers of the ankle is essential to prevent rolling it again.

Whatever level of sports injury you have incurred, there are options available for your healing and treatment. Whether you’re a high-level athlete or just starting a sport, contact PhysioNow and get back to your body and back on the field!

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT SPORTS INJURIES TREATMENT

Should I have an x-ray done before I begin treatment?

Xrays are not necessary before you start physiotherapy treatment unless there is a concern that you may have a broken bone. In that case, please proceed to get an xray first. Otherwise, we do not require any tests to be done before you start physiotherapy treatment. If it looks like there is something wrong when we assess you, we will send a note with you to go back to your doctor asking for specific further testing to be done.

Is sport injury therapy covered by my insurance provider?

Yes, Registered Physiotherapy should be covered under your regular Health insurance plan if you have coverage for Physiotherapy. You may need a doctors note for your plan to cover the treatment. Our treatment would be billed as Registered Physiotherapy.

How many sessions are needed before I can become active again?

Typically, your plan will cover you for either a certain amount of money per year for Reg. Physiotherapy. Some plans cover a certain amount per visit with no limit on the number of visits per year. Each plan is unique. Each plan renews on a certain date each year. This varies between plans although the majority reset in January each year. To be sure, it would be best to call the plan administrator to check on this. We can also call for you at the clinic as long as you are present when we make the call. Due to privacy concerns, the insurance providers will not discuss your plan with us unless you give them permission.

How can sports injuries be prevented?

Some of the strategies that help with prevention of sports injuries include: 1. warming up before going to intense activity; 2. build up your training gradually so that your body is ready to work hard at more intense levels of sport ; 3.
