TheraSport Physical Therapy – Swimming in the Summer

Shoulder pain is common with swimmers. When you swim, you use many muscle groups, some which are highly dependent on the shoulder for coordinated function.

Numerous muscles are all working simultaneously to stabilize the shoulder.
Naturally, the repetitive motion of swimming can tire out muscles which can
lead to pain, inflammation and a possible injury, known as Swimmer’s
Shoulder.

Call TheraSport Physical Therapy today to find out how we can help you a
create a comprehensive program to develop strength, endurance, and
flexibility so you can swim conditioned without fatigue or injury.

TheraSport Physical Therapy – Summer Activity

Now that the weather is warming up people are venturing outside to garden, tend the lawn, and play outdoor sports. It is important to keep in mind,
while enjoying outside activities to be mindful of body positioning and
extensive time doing activities to avoid injury.

Common summer activities such as gardening and lawn care can be damaging to the back and spine. Constantly bending over, twisting, pulling, while doing
these activities after a winter of being sedentary could result in an injury or aggravate a preexisting one.

Just like in sports, it is important to warm up before play, the same goes
for marathon gardening or lawn mowing. Warming up tissues and muscles before you begin working will not only help keep your body healthy it will also diminish the chance of injury.

TheraSport Physical Therapy – Running

SportsInjurySpot.jpg

Sports injuries need attention in order to heal properly. They are not uncommon and can be either acute (sprains, fractures, tears, etc.) or chronic (tendinitis, overuse, etc.)

Contact TSPT today to find out how we can help develop a program to treat your condition and get you back running safe!

Some Common Running Injuries Include:

Iliotibial Band Syndrome: The ITB is a band of fascia that starts in the hip and crosses the outside of the knee. This band can become inflamed due to tightness and repetitive motion. Symptoms include achy pain on the outside of the knee that can become sharp pain with activities like running and stairs. Physical therapy helps to decrease the inflammation and increase ITB flexibility.

Shin Splints: This syndrome is caused by ischemia of the muscles in the anterior compartment of the leg and by small tears in the tissue, following strenuous exercise. Therapy can help to decrease irritation as well as balance flexibility and leg strength, preventing pain.

Stress Fractures: Stress fractures are micro-fracturing of the bone due to repetitive trauma. Common sites of stress fractures include the tibia and in the metatarsals of the feet. These fractures can be caused by stress from training, poor footwear, insufficient ROM/strength, and hard running surfaces. Following a period of immobilization/NWB (non-weight bearing), therapy helps to return the runner to their normal work-out routine.

Hamstrings Strain: More common in the sprinting athlete, a strain of the hamstrings is caused by overstretching and tearing of the muscle. This injury can range from slight tightness/pain in a Grade I strain to a Grade III season ending rupture in which there often is an audible pop! Therapy is paramount in regaining ROM/strength to return the athlete to running.
