Trending sports injuries – tennis players’ shoulder

Who’d have thought it? We’re in the second week of Wimbledon and my 3 new clients this week have all presented with shoulder injuries. Mostly brought on by playing tennis without stretching or warming up properly first.

Having wonderful sports so easily accessible to watch – in full Technicolor – is fabulous, but it triggers people to rush out and play them without thinking first what impact their actions might have.

To help prevent such injuries, any player should stretch properly and warm up for at least 10 minutes before starting a vigorous game.

However, if they don’t, massage is a great way to alleviate the pain and get those muscles back on the road to recovery.

I’m curious as to what unusual injuries the Olympics may bring…
