Sports & Muscular Injuries

Sports and muscular injuries often occur when least expected. Even day-to-day activities like walking, running, rowing, playing sport or simply gardening can lead to unexpected soreness or an injury.

This may arise from:

  • overuse of muscles and tendons;
  • insufficient training;
  • sudden impact;
  • holding a poor position for too long;
  • equipment failure;
  • poor technique;
  • insufficient warm up;
  • inappropriate footwear; and more
