Sports injuries do more than interrupt the game. They can also cause great pain and invite problems later in life.
Some common complaints include lateral ankle sprain, Achilles tendonitis, anterior knee pain, joint strains, ligament weakness, shin splints and muscle tears.
Most are due to biomechanical irregularities, so rather than simply treating the symptoms, it is important to focus on the underlying cause of the problem.
The body will compensate for biomechanical defects, causing muscle imbalance and strains, ligament and fascia tears, cartilage degeneration, bone mal-alignment and postural problems.
Treatment for lower limb sports injuries usually involves the use of orthotics. This helps to realign the body’s biomechanical structure and correct musculoskeletal complaints.
