Congratulations to Michael Phelps who now has four gold medals in the 2014 Rio Olympics games. His performance is astounding as he is one of the oldest swimmers in the pool. Even though swimming is quite a fluid exercise, some of these swimmers still develop injuries.
At the Rio 2016 Olympics, one of the most anticipated sports is gymnastics and the toughness of these gymnasts are astounding. Most are competing with minor injuries and one of the most common gymnastic injuries is a shoulder injury.
Knee injuries and arthritis are pain and the knee cannot fully repair on it’s own. While letting your knee heal naturally from a traumatic injury, it is possible to develop life-long symptoms. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, we guide your knee’s recovery to both avoid and minimize these symptoms.
An ankle sprain injury requires physical therapy. The reason is because once the ankle is sprained, the surrounding ligaments and tendons are weak. They cannot support the weight and balance of your body meaning any little misstep can cause the ankle to re-twist or re-roll.
