Acute Sports Injuries
We can treat many acute sports injuries. An acute injury would be something like a broken bone, dislocated shoulder, concussion, etc. These injuries typically happen in an instant.
Not only will you likely require a lot of care for your injury initially, but you will also need aftercare as well. Physical therapy is very useful in acute injuries. You can come back stronger if you perform physical therapy as prescribed.
Overuse Sports Injuries
Some of the most common sports injuries come from overuse. It could be because of prolonged wear and tear on joints like your elbow, knees, or shoulders. It could also be because of a lack of strength training to provide the stability needed to be able to do the movement your sport requires without eventually causing damage.
Unfortunately, the first line of treatment for most overuse injuries includes rest. Most often, when you have an overuse injury, you are going to be sent to physical therapy. Physical therapy can help strengthen the joint to aid in recovery as well as prevent further injury.
If you have hypermobile joints, it can make you very prone to injury. Keeping up with strengthening your stability joints can help you avoid more overuse injuries.
