There’s no other sport quite like gymnastics. Equal parts power, control and style, it’s a sport that engages your entire body and defies human limitations. But when that breathless moment of flight goes wrong, your potential for serious injury is very high. Without proper rehabilitation, many of these injuries can become lifelong orthopaedic problems.
Gymnastics injuries can affect any part of your body, and may be caused by either overuse or trauma. In some cases, the injury may be a combination of both, such as when you punch hard through a joint that has already been strained or weakened. When you come to Andrews Sports Medicine, you’ll be matched with one of the country’s elite sports medicine doctors.
