Sports Injury Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation
Sports Injury Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy in Mississauga: Our sports injury clinic Mississauga is a team of skilled physiotherapists located in heartland area. Sports injury rehabilitation in Curezone Physiotherapy Mississauga aims to:
- Restore the athlete’s function and performance level
- Return to sports participation in a safe and timely manner
- Minimize the risk of re-injury by correcting overuse or improper training and techniques.
The aim of rehabilitation in our sports injury clinic is to plan patient oriented exercise program that is progressed gradually by our physiotherapists. Our licensed Physiotherapist customizes a program that recognizes the weaknesses and main driving vectors of your pain, allowing you to recover quickly and stay active.
Even, if you have an old injury, it is always advised to have it assessed by our physiotherapists to prevent long term damage such as arthritis or scar tissue formation.
They work in collaboration with a group of other therapists and try implementing various methods including physiotherapy, osteopathic technique, chiropractic and massage therapy. The collective effort of these therapists allows for better co-ordination of treatments and more efficient and reliable services for our patients.
These injuries are treated with manual therapies that may enhance the effects of exercise through pain management and improved tissue adaptations and introducing the most effective intervention at the right time and in right proportion.
The cause of most of the overuse injuries related to sports are related to a sudden increase in training quantity, poor footwear or an obvious biomechanical abnormality, running with muscle imbalance, leg length discrepancy, surfaces, equipment and environmental conditions, and intrinsic factors, such as age, gender, muscle weakness, lack of flexibility and body composition.

Some of the sport injury rehabilitation programs are:
Post operative injuries like ACL/PCL Reconstructions: It is very common for athletes to injure the Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which are the tissues that hold your knee together and help it move in different directions. Learn more about FAQs about the knee pain.
Meniscus tears: A meniscus tear is a common knee injury. The meniscus is a C-shaped disc that cushions your knee. Each knee has two menisci (menial and lateral)—one at the outer edge of the knee and one at the inner edge.
Rotator cuff Injuries: After playing sports that require lifting their arm over their head or sleeping with arms overhead commonly results in rotator cuff tendinitis. Check more for the FAQs about the Shoulder pain treatments.
Sprain and a muscle strain: A sprain occurs when the ligaments that join the ends of one bone with another are stretched or torn. A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is pulled, torn or twisted.
Tendonitis and bursitis: Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon — the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. It can occur in any of your tendons; it’s most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels.
Tennis Elbow also known as lateral epicondylitis, is caused by inflammation of the muscles of the forearm that attach to the elbow. Although it’s commonly caused by a repetitive activity in racquet sports, it can also be seen in workplace injuries, particularly among painters, carpenters, and plumbers.
Golfer’s elbow: The patient usually complains about pain of the elbow distal to the medial epicondyle of the humerus. It is an overuse injury caused by a repetitive activity. The pain is evoked by resisted flexion of the wrist and by pronation. The pain is usually accompanied by a weakness of hand grip.
Shin splints: Shin splints occur when there is pain in the front of the lower leg, known as the tibia or shin bone. Shin splints most commonly occur in runners, especially those who are just starting a running program. This is usually due to poor alignment of the body, or weakness in the leg muscles.
