Is physiotherapy good for athletes?
Physiotherapy is an excellent treatment option for athletes suffering from aches, nagging injuries and general wear and tear. In addition to rehabbing acute and chronic injuries, our treatment will help you maintain optimal physical condition and prevent injuries from occurring. Our therapists are experienced in treating athletes of all levels and can create a rehabilitation program that is tailored specifically for you.
What is the most common injury in basketball?
Ankle sprains are the most common injury, whether you’re a high school player or a seasoned professional. Because basketball involves sudden changes in direction and explosive jumping, it’s not surprising that ankle injuries are so common. However, with the right physiotherapy treatment and adequate rest, you can quickly heal most ankle sprains.
When should I see a basketball physio?
If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort while playing basketball or recently suffered an injury, it’s best to see a physiotherapist as soon as possible. Waiting too long to seek treatment, or continuing to play can prolong the healing process, but it can also lead to further injury.
How do you treat a basketball injury?
After you’ve injured yourself, you can perform RICE: rest, ice, compression and elevation. Once the initial swelling has subsided, our physiotherapists will assess and treat your injury with a combination of hands-on therapy, targeted exercises and advice on injury prevention
Why choose Solidus?
While you could take a break from basketball and let your injury heal, you may be susceptible to reinjury if it’s not adequately rehabilitated. At Solidus, we incorporate techniques that will speed up recovery and help you become injury resilient and a better athlete overall. By correcting muscle weaknesses, posture, and poor technique, you’ll eventually become a more explosive and efficient player on the court.
