CONTUSIONS

Athletes that play high impact contact sports have a much higher risk of receiving a muscle contusion, or deep bruise. Muscle Contusions are second only to strains as a leading cause of sports injuries.

In many cases, minor contusions can heal quickly, without the athlete needing to take time away from playing the game. However, Severe contusions may cause deep tissue damage that leads to complications, which can prevent a player from playing sports for months.

Contusions occur when a direct blow or repeated blows by a blunt object strike part of the body, crushing underlying muscle fibers and connective tissue without breaking the skin. A contusion can result from falling or jamming the body against a hard surface.

 

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
