Tip/ If you’re playing netball, soccer or any contact sport wear the correct shoes and make sure you have strong ankle, lower leg and foot muscles – if you do roll your ankle rehabilitation should strengthen these muscles.
Knee Ligament Injuries
Normally as a result of cutting or fast changes in direction – common in netball, basketball and soccer.
Tip/ Make sure you’re fit before the season starts – work on strength, endurance and flexibility.
Shoulder Injuries – the dreaded rotator cuff
Not just seen in sports injuries – our most common injury at the Clinic. Just “overdoing it” can damage the cuff – the small muscles weren’t designed for hard work.
Tip/ Don’t suddenly play tennis/golf/squash or swim for a lot longer than you’re used to and don’t overdo the weights at the gym – your good posture and form is vital to help avoid these injuries.
