Causes of muscle pain

Sports can be the reason for most muscular discomfort. Exercise is a hugely important part of health and wellbeing and can be carried out by young children right up for the elderly. It is important to monitor your amount of exercise and not checking small pains can lead to bigger future problems. The frequency of playing sports can also be a contributing factor to injuries.

The most common sports injuries we see in the clinic are:

  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Biceps Tendonitis
  • Groin Strain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Ligament Damage

Not all muscular pain is caused by one single factor. A simple quick body rotation can pull a muscle but this could be down to your current fitness and how much or little exercise you carry out in your weekly routine. Your body is subjected to different types of stress and strain every day. These can be a result of the way you sit if you work at a computer, if you stand for long periods of time, from repeated motions or from accidental injury. Your body absorbs all these strains on any given day.

Usually, the regeneration process works on its own without us even knowing, however sometimes things can go wrong and we are left feeling pain, discomfort, immobile and vulnerable. Our team can facilitate the regeneration process can carry out some of our wide variety of treatments.
