How does Sports Injury Rehabilitation work?

With any of our treatments, the first step is a thorough assessment. We’ll start by speaking with you about your symptoms, medical history, limitations, and goals for your treatment. To get a clear picture of your injury, we may use advanced imaging tools like x-ray, MRI, and CT scan.

Once we know what we’re dealing with, we will create a custom treatment plan that will help you overcome it. That plan can incorporate a wide variety of therapies so we can take a whole-body approach to your healing.

Our comprehensive range of treatment options includes:


When can I expect to see results?

The time it takes to recover from a sports injury varies widely depending on what type of injury it is. For example, sprains can usually be healed within a few days, while any type of fracture requires at least five weeks. But no matter what type of injury it is, sports injury rehab will speed up your recovery time. For example, using aqua therapy or functional braces, we can help you begin exercising again as soon as possible.

  • 1. What are the most common sports injuries?

    The most common sports injuries are sprained ankles, pulled groin muscles, hamstring strains, knee joint or shin injuries and tennis elbow. Typically, these types of injury occur when you push yourself too hard, too fast. You need to gradually build up your activity levels, especially if you have not exercised for a few days or longer. Should you be injured, it is wise to contact us at Active Clinics to get professional advice about how to recover as quickly as possible.

  • 2. What injuries take the longest to heal?

    Brain injuries take the longest to heal and fully recover from. Often, the damaged area is left scarred, so it never becomes fully functional again. This means other areas of the brain must be trained to take over. Coping techniques need to be learned too. Injuries to weight-bearing joints like the ankle and knee also heal slowly. But physical therapy like that offered by Activa Clinics’ practitioners can help the healing process. You just need to call to make an appointment.

  • 3. What are the worst sports injuries?

    The worst sports injury in terms of time to heal is an articular cartilage injury (ACL). A concussion is serious too, as is breaking a large bone in your leg, fracturing vertebrae or tearing a ligament. Regardless of the type of sports injury, you should get treatment from an experienced physical therapist. One that has treated that type of injury before and knows how to get you back playing the sport you love. Just call Activa Clinics to find a suitable therapist.
