HOCKEY SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS, REHABILITATION and TRAINING
Hockey is a fast paced contact sport that is played on ice with skates and a stick. Obviously injuries are part of the game. While the majority of these injuries may be due to contact with other players, a stick, a puck, or the boards, other overuse injuries may develop due to repetitive movements (skating/shooting), muscle imbalances, and improper conditioning.
Common Hockey Related Injuries:
- Shoulder injuries
- Hip Pain
- Groin Strains
- Knee Ligament Injuries
