Find Treatment in Lane Cove for Your Sports Injury or Muscle Injury at Burns Bay Physiotherapy

Sports injuries are the types of injuries that occur during exercise or sports. It’s possible, of course, to injure any part of the body while playing sports, but the term “sports injury” typically refers to musculoskeletal system injuries. Common sports injuries may include sprains, strains, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis (or rupture of the Achilles’ tendon), bone fractures, and joint dislocations. Those who seek sports injury treatment in Lane Cove and elsewhere suffer from either acute or chronic injuries. Acute injuries occur suddenly while playing sports or exercising; chronic injuries result from overuse of one body part over a period.

Caring for a Sports Injury

When a tennis player “strains” a tendon or a runner “pulls” a muscle, the pain means that the soft tissues in the area are injured. Tiny blood vessels break and fibres of the affected muscle, ligament, or tendon become disrupted. Swelling occurs soon after the injury takes place. The swelling, along with the trauma, can make the injured tissues painful and tender as well as stiff. Even when the injury involves a bone, as in a fracture, the nearby soft tissues usually also sustain some damage.

Muscle injury treatment in Lane Cove typically includes resting the affected body part, applying ice to reduce swelling and pain, using bandages or wraps to apply light pressure (compression), and elevating the injured area to minimise swelling further. Heat may also be used; it can increase blood flow to a specific area, relieve muscle tightness, reduce joint stiffness, and decrease pain. However, heat may be more useful on a chronic injury, while ice is more often used on acute injuries.
