Really knows what they are doing in terms of treatment. Treated my knee and migraine. I could walk on my left leg as my knees was really damaged and Jen treated it to the point I could walk and feel little pain now.

Jen and her team have been treating me for a few years now. They're always very professional and caring. The clinic is clean and well maintained. For those who are concerned for covid safety, Jen's clinic maintains a great ventilation standard (we measured it with an Aranet) and she also runs an air purifier. I really recommend them.

The team at Pro Health Clinic have done wonders to my shoulder injury. I’ve been to multiple physios over the years with no success. After just one visit to this clinic, I immediately felt a massive difference and now and fully recovered. I am so grateful!!! I have referred my whole family to see them and they also speak very highly of their experiences. Would highly recommend ???

The 4 Most Common Sports Injuries We See in Physiotherapy

With cricket season in full swing, rugby season about to kick in, and footy pre-season starting, we are seeing a lot of sports injuries at our sports physiotherapy clinic in Croydon Park. Unfortunately sports injuries are one of the most common ailments that bring people into ProHealth. Our physiotherapists know how important it is for their patients to get back to the game, and our Croydon Park sports injury clinic can help you do just that. 

Let’s take a look at the 4 most common sports injuries we see here at our Croydon Park sports injury clinic:

Hamstring Injury

Hamstring injuries are usually triggered by rapid muscle contraction during a sprint, jump or other movement that stretches the tendon past its capacity. Hamstring injuries are graded 1, 2 or 3 and this grading determines what level of treatment you will need. 

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder joints are complex, with a lot of different vulnerable structures. We commonly see AC joint sprains, which are also graded 1, 2 or 3. AC joint sprains are usually a result of direct impact to the tip of the shoulder. We often see this type of injury in contact sports such as rugby, soccer, or AFL. 

Concussions

Concussions can occur in any sport and happen when there is a direct impact to the head. More commonly seen in contact sports, where shoulders, knees and balls can hit players’ heads. The trauma from the collision causes the brain to jostle back and forth within the skull. This jolting movement can temporarily cause chemical changes in the brain. Physios cannot physically prevent or treat this kind of injury, but we aim to educate our patients to understand the severity of this sports injury.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)

An ACL tear is one of the most common sports injuries across all sports. The ACL is a tissue connecting the shinbone and thigh bone at the knee. An ACL tear often presents itself via swelling, instability, and pain.

What can you do to avoid injury?

Being active, whether running, playing tennis, or part of a contact sport, is an essential part of our lives and unfortunately, injuries do happen. The sports injuries our physios see are often a result of overuse or trauma to the muscles and joints. You can condition your body and mind to reduce the risk of injury. Let’s take a look at how you can lower your risk of sports injuries:

  • Condition your body
    AFL players don’t just play game after game of footy to prepare for the season. They train their bodies in different ways to prepare. Strength training, resistance training, endurance training – it is important to condition your entire body to reduce your risk of injury. Speak to your physio to build a training plan to help build strength in vulnerable areas.
  • Treat your training like a gym workout
    Leg day, chest and back day, arm day – gym junkies have got it right.They know exactly how many reps and sets they do in each session, and know how long they trained for. This helps them understand what their body is capable of, when they can increase their load, and get insight into how their body is developing.
  • Gradually increase the load
    Put simply, you don’t train for a marathon by running marathons. You start off slow, increasing the distance and speed over time, building up to the big day. Training for sport is the same. You need to condition your body and allow it time to get used to the training load.
