Below are some common sports injuries that you may come across.
The following five symptoms may indicate an injury:
- Loss of function/range of movement
Attempting to work through symptoms such as these, or masking them with painkillers, may lead to a much more serious injury.
The most common form of injuries are soft tissue injuries.
A sprain occurs when ligaments (the fibrous tissue that connect bone to bone) are overstretched or torn – usually the damage is the result of an accident, i.e. twisting the ankle.
A strain occurs when a muscle or a tendon (the connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone) is damaged. This type of injury can also occur as a result of an accident.
An overuse injury is an injury caused by an activity that places too much stress on one area of the body over an extended period of time.
If you've suffered from a sports injury, you can experience fast and dramatic relief. Waiting too long after an injury puts stress and strain on other muscle groups and can lead to the development of further problems. Therpoint Massage can help relieve your pain. Don't suffer any longer or wait until pain worsens. Call today for your appointment>>

I was in severe spasms that left me breathless
I am an avid competitor in the fast paced sport of Dog Agility. My ability to run well was compromised by a recurring problem with my low back and sciatic nerve making running very difficult and seriously affecting my ability to compete. I was in severe spasms that left me breathless and unable to bend, lift or move well. I called Therpoint in tears of pain and frustration. After several session I have not had any reoccurrence.
