Common Sporting Injuries

Most sporting injuries are caused by underlying biomechanical abnormalities. The following are common:

  • Constant lateral ankle sprains

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Anterior knee pain

  • Constance cracking of joints

  • Ligament weakness

  • Unstable running

  • Shin splints

  • Big toe soreness


All these conditions have underlying causes, rather than the treatment the symptoms, a cause and etiology must be determined and treated accordingly. A full biomechanical assessment will determine these causes


When the body's biomechanical system is not functioning normally, the body compensates for the abnormalities. This causes muscle imbalances, tearing of fascias and ligaments, muscle strains, degeneration of cartilage, bone mal-alignment and postural changes.


The use of orthotics is common in treating a wide range of lower limb sporting conditions. The main purpose is to realign the body's biomechanical structures and correct the musculoskeletal disorders of the lower limb.
