Basketball is a physically demanding sport that involves running, jumping, and quick changes of direction that can lead to a range of injuries. These injuries can vary from minor to severe with physiotherapy being an effective way to help manage and even prevent some of these. Some common basketball injuries include ankle sprains, knee injuries (such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears), hand and wrist injuries (such as fractures and sprains), and shoulder injuries (such as rotator cuff tears). When it comes to treating basketball injuries, physiotherapy can play an important role in helping athletes recover and return to their sport.
Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain and inflammation, improve range of motion and flexibility, and strengthen the affected area to prevent future injuries. We are thrilled to provide physiotherapy services to the first V at Toowoomba Grammar and the Toowoomba Mountaineers with our APA Sports Physiotherapist Scott Weber.
