Treatments for Sports Related Injuries

Hamstrings

Hamstring Injuries treated at AST

A Strain to the Hamstring muscle group is one of the most common muscle strains which result from physical activity.

This muscle group may be overpowered by the larger Quadriceps muscle group or may be inj
ured due to the lack of flexibility or over contraction. Many Hamstring strains can become chronic in nature.

Knee

Many Knee problemscan be traced back to incorrect training techniques which have not taken into account the need to stretch and exercise all parts of the Quads.

Often dancers suffer from an imbalance between the Vastus Medialis and the Vastus Lateralis.

This will lead to an uneven pull on the Patella (kneecap) thus creating excess wear and tear on the articular surface between the Femur and the Patella this condition is called Chondromalaci.

Ankles

Treatment for ankle sprains at AST Clinic.

Lateral Ankle Sprains are one of the most common Musculoskeletal Injuries.

It is the motion of inversion combined with plantar flexion that creates the most frequent lateral ankle sprains.

The main ligament which suffers injury is the anterior Talofibular ligamentswhose role is to prevent anterior movement of the Talus, more severe injuries will involve the Calcaneofibular Ligament.

Shoulders

Sternoclavicular Joint Sprain

The Sternoclavicular Joint Sprain is an uncommon injury, this is usually caused by a force transmitted through the shoulder and the clavicle. The joint is moveable and is the primary joint allowing for motion during the initiation of shoulder abduction to 90 degrees. It takes a long time to heal when injured.

At AST we treat such injury with a Kinesio tape method which reduces edema and pain.

Neck Pain

Neck Sprain or Whiplash and Kinesio Tape

A sprain of the neck usually occurs as a result of a quick snapping of the head in foward flexion. It may be associated with a strain of the neck as this motion will also cause an over stretching of the cervical paraspinal muscle.

At AST Clinic by using Kinesio Taping we assist the reduction in edema and muscle spasam and help limit painful neck movement.
