Sports injuries refer to any physical incidents sustained while engaging in physical activities or participating in sports; they are not exclusively restricted to athletes but could impact factory workers, painters and gardeners. Factory workers might suffer tennis elbow, painters’ shoulder injuries and gardeners’ tendinitis; sports injuries generally fall into two broad categories – acute and chronic. Acute injuries typically stem from sudden events like falls, blows or joint twists. In contrast, chronic ones result from overuse or repetitive strain on particular body parts and occur gradually over time.
At Rebound Sports and Spine, Dr. Mark Malowney and the team specialize in rehabbing various sports injuries to facilitate swift returns to daily activities and sports activities. Dr. Mark has first-hand knowledge of what athletes, coaches and parents go through after they experience sports injuries and concussions themselves; players don’t want to let down their team so quickly get back in the game as soon as they possibly can; coaches want assurances the athlete is safe before sending back in; parents want peace-of-mind knowing there won’t be any long-term ramifications from concussion injuries sustained by their child.
