What Are The Typical Causes Of A Sports Injury?
Injuries that occur during athletic activity are classified as sports injuries. Among the most common causes of sports injuries are:
- Excessive swinging motion, such as during baseball or other sports that require repetitive swinging
- Excessive ankle rolling, such as while running or playing soccer
- Lifting heavy weights or objects at the gym with incorrect form or past your capacity

What Can You Expect During Your Physiotherapy Appointment?
