Tennis

TennisLower limb injuries in tennis are twice as common as upper limb injuries.  The ankle joint is most commonly affected due to the sprinting, stopping and fast pace direction changes in the sport. Court surfaces, environmental conditions and appropriate footwear all contribute to the risk of injury.  Overuse injuries such as muscle strains and tendon injuries in the lower limbs can be prevented with appropriate training and skill development from coaching, and also getting the right footwear advice to suit your individual biomechanical needs from a Podiatrist.
