Common Sports Injuries

Our sports physiotherapists at White Rock Orthopaedic focus on evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical mobility of athletes. Rather than providing a one-size-fits-all treatment plan, we offer personalized sports injury rehab in our South Surrey clinic.

Some of the most common sports injuries we encounter and the treatment options we offer here at White Rock Orthopaedic include:

  • Knee and ankle ligament sprains: Sprains are injuries to ligaments, which connect bones in a joint. Stretching a ligament past its limits can cause deformities or tears. A sprained knee or ankle may be difficult to walk or compete on. 
    • Treatment includes: Range-of-motion exercises, stretching, strength training and balance exercises. 
  • Fractures and dislocations: Fractures and dislocations are the most common bone and joint injuries that can happen in a variety of ways including accidents, repetitive stress injuries, tumors and osteoporosis.
    • Treatment includes: elevate the injured area, apply ice pack or a cold compress, and get medical help as soon as possible.
  • Plantar fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain that involves inflammation of a thick band tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It is more common in runners, people who are overweight and wear shoes with inadequate support.
    • Treatment includes: Medications, physical therapies, night splints, surgical and other procedures.
  • Iliotibial band strains: A strain is an injury to muscle fibres or tendons, which anchor your muscles to your bones. ITB strain is an overuse injury of the connective tissues located on the outer thigh and caused by over-stretching or over-using a muscle, which causes tears. 
    • Treatment includes: Stretching, strengthening exercises and surgery for extreme cases. 
  • Bursitis: Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled pads (bursae) that act as cushions at the shoulder, elbow or hip joints. Bursitis is most often caused by age, stress, or from a sudden or serious injury.
    • Treatment includes: resting the injured area, icing the area regularly, avoiding activities that can aggravate the problem. 
  • Shin splints: Shin splints often manifest themselves as a throbbing or aching in your shins after running. Also called medial tibial stress syndrome, shin splints are caused by stress on your shinbone and the connective tissues that attach muscles to your bones. Shin splints cause these muscles and tissues to become inflamed and painful. 
    • Treatment includes: Rest, icing to ease swelling and pain, prescription of orthotics and strength training. 
  • ACL tears: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone and can be torn or injured from various sports activities. 
    • Treatment includes: In addition to resting, icing and compressing your knee, you will need to wear a knee brace to stabilize your knee and practice stretching and strengthening exercises. Surgery is often required. 
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow: Repetitive motions, such as swinging a tennis racket, can lead to lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow. Similarly golfer’s elbow is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of the elbow leading to weakness and stiffness in your hands and wrists.
    • Treatment includes: Stretching, strengthening exercises and other modalities.
