Sports injuries

Finding out about common sports injuries is why we've set up this section of the site. And because we're not experts, we 've got advice from people that are!

In the following pages you'll find sports injuries information and advice, plus a link through to our partners website so that you find out more about prevention, cure and massage.

From the frequest ankle sprain to the less common plantar fasciitis, do you know why they occur. More importantly what can you do to prevent future re-occurrence or hamstrings, tennis elbow, strained calf muscles etc. You cant stop your training or participation, so sports injuries are an inevitability at some point in your career (unless you are very lucky!). However, there are ways to reduce the likelihood - the obvious ways being to warm up properly and stretching before doing any activity.

Choose your injury...

Typical injuries come from playing an organised, community sport. While there is a certain amount of risk involved in participatory sports, coaches, trainers and program supervisors must share most of the responsibility for providing maximum safety. However, ultimately there is a lot that you must take care of yourself in a healthy playing climate to ensure you prevent knee, heel, shoulder, elbow, hip or back injuries do not occur. Knowing what to look out for and where to go for sound advice and rehabilitation is vital if you wish to continue your sport or fitness regime.
