Hockey Sports Therapy Overview
Hockey is one of those sports that due to its nature leads to higher incidences of injuries to the head, neck and joints. It’s incredibly important that any injuries sustained while playing the game be rehabilitated as past injuries that were not properly rehabilitated will only increase the number of future injuries that may require significantly more invasive rehabilitation techniques such as Orthopedic surgery.
How Do I Know If I Need Sports Medicine?
Ice hockey is one of the few sports that include a high probability of collisions between players, even if it’s a no contact pickup game. Injury is almost a certainty in some way given the nature of the game. Injuries to the head, neck, shoulder, knee and feet are common among players. If you’re suffering from any pain or discomfort in any of these locations. It is worthwhile getting an assessment.
