A Sports Injury does not discriminate between a weekend warrior or a professional athlete. An injury can be caused by one of two different sources. The first from trauma, due to a twist, slip, collision and/or fall. Or, from repetitive stress, due to overuse of a certain body part, resulting in small often undetected tears in the muscle finders, which accumulate over time, called Micro trauma. Increased intensity in your training and performance increases the strain and risk for injury. Proper bio-mechanics, structural skeletal alignment, and soft tissue (muscles/tendons/ligaments) health is critical in supportive care when recovering from, or avoidance, of sports injury.
