About Sports Injuries
Sports injuries are common among athletes and players who indulge in strenuous exercises and rigorous training sessions every day. Whether you’re a professional athlete or just play football for recreational purposes, sports injuries can hinder your mobility to a great extent. From hairline fractures and poor postures to ruptured tendons and dislocations, sports injuries need to be treated with the utmost care to help patients regain their full range of motion. However, even though the occurrence of sports injuries is common, misdiagnosis of these injuries due to lack of expertise or experience is prevalent.

HOW DO WE TREAT SPORTS INJURIES?

BENEFITS OF OUR TREATMENT
Massage therapy relieves stress by boosting the energy levels of our body. By targeting pressure points in the problem areas, the cortisol levels in our body decrease and our muscles begin to relax.
Promotes muscle relaxation
Massage therapy targets the source of the body’s pain and eliminates the tension in the muscles. This improves the flexibility of the body and reduces stiffness, pain, and swelling in muscles.
Massage therapy allows the contracted muscles to loosen and relax. This improves an athlete’s posture and enhances their range of motion to a great extent.
Physiotherapy introduces athletes and recreational players to preventive exercises that can be adopted to reduce the risk of getting sports injuries in the future.
Eliminates the need for surgery
Physiotherapy reduces the likelihood of requiring surgery for sports injuries by stimulating the healing process of the body through targeted exercises.
Physiotherapy uses therapeutic exercises to restore the functions of the muscles. The exercises not only alleviate pain but also prevent the pain from returning.

MAKING AN APPOINTMENT
Basketball has a special place in my heart. I used to play basketball a lot back in college, and even though I haven’t found the time to play much of it ever since I started working, I still enjoy a game or two on the weekend. Even though I love basketball, I regret the last time I played it, because I ended up spraining both the ACL and MCL in my left knee. It greatly affected my mobility even a month after the injury. One of my friends recommended Divergent Health and visiting the clinic was the best decision I could’ve made for myself. Just a month of extensive physical therapy and my knee was back feeling better than ever!
