Soft Tissue Injuries and Sports Strapping

Sports tissue injuries and sports strapping are regular winter injury practices. What are the basic steps to take when these occur.

Sports strapping and injury management

Whether it’s on the sports field, in the gym, or outside running on the roads, the use of sports tape to support our bodies through those tough workouts and games is a common sight.

"I was involved in a head on road smash in 1996 that resulted in a broken hip. I had 4 pins placed in the damaged area and since then I've had to cope with a lack of flexibility. There have also been periods of painful muscle spasms and nerve pain.

Over the past two years, I've been to four different physiotherapists. I paid a total of 30 visits to two of them and a further 15 visits to the other two. I found there was no pain relief or improvement in my hip's flexibility after all these visits.

I decided to give Anthony Fong a try. I was pleased to have relief from the muscle spasms after just the second visit. Since then, Anthony's mix of massage, acupressure and acupuncture, has not only helped with pain relief, but to my delight, his treatment has also resulted in more flexibility in my hip. I now find it easier to climb in and out of a car. I also find it less tiring to walk.

Anthony has an intuitive way of administering his treatment and has been able to produce results for me that I've not had from any of the previous physiotherapists I've tried. He is a conscientious healer who has a genuine interest in his clients.

I've now had 12 sessions with Anthony and my hip's flexibility has continued to improve and the spasms have become less frequent and less intense when they do strike. I'm delighted with the way his treatment has improved my walking and day to day activities."
