Macro-traumatic injuries are usually due to a strong force – such as a fall, accident, collision or laceration – and are more common in contact sports such as football and rugby.
Micro-traumatic injuries are chronic injuries that result from overuse of a structure such as a muscle, joint, ligament, or tendon. This type of injury is more common in sports such as swimming, cycling and rowing.
The process of rehabilitation should start as early as possible after an injury and consider the specific abilities and demands of the individual, both physical and psychological.
When an injury requires a surgical intervention, programs can also start before or immediately after surgery.
Rehabilitation programs should aim to restore muscle strength, endurance, power, improve flexibility, proprioception, and balance as well as more sports specific or functional exercises.
