Sports Injury Management

Sports injuries are commonly caused by overuse, direct impact, or the application of force that is greater than the body part can structurally withstand. An injury that occurs as a direct result of some sudden event, such as a sprained knee caused by twisting awkwardly, is known as an acute injury. In contrast, an injury that is caused by overusing the same muscle group or joints is known as a chronic injury.

Whether your sports injury is acute or chronic, if pain persists, one should seek advise and treatment to address the problem. At Urban Body Balance we can offer a wide variety of treatments to get to the route cause of your injury, including Massage, Acupuncture, Body Balancing / Kore Therapy, Energy release techniques, Acupuncture Electro therapy, to name but a few.
