A Sports Injury does not discriminate between a weekend warrior and a professional athlete.
What Causes Sports Injuries?
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 biomechanics, structural skeletal alignment, and soft tissue (muscles/tendons/ligaments) health is critical in supportive care when recovering from or avoiding a sports injury.
