Sports Physiotherapy in Ottawa
Being an athlete can take a huge physical toll on the body, putting significant stress on our muscles, joints, and bones. Without proper precautions and post workout stretching, mild to severe sports injuries can occur, no matter your skill level.
Whether you’ve experienced an injury or want to stay on top of your game, sports physiotherapy is the key to strong performance and both healing or preventing injury for professional and recreational athletes.
What is a Sports Injury?
Sports injuries can either be caused by an acute trauma (twisting your ankle, for example), or overusing a particular body part (getting a shin splint from running) during intense physical activity.
Each type of sports injury typically produces different symptoms and complications, however, the most common sports injuries our team of licensed physiotherapists can treat include:
- Sprains and strains
- Swollen muscles
- Running injuries like shin splints
- Heel and foot pain
- Rotator Cuff injuries
