Injury Prevention


Got injured?

  • Pain Management:
    – Pain gets it’s own section on this site. Why?
    Damage does not ’cause’ pain
    – it’s more complicated than that. Injury healing and pain recovery can be quite different. Therefore, treating pain isn’t the same as rehabbing an injury, so learn more about pain in the Pain Education section.
  • For Persistent Injuries: Some things everyone should consider when it seems they are getting a lot of injuries, or they just won’t go away.
    Healing vs. Recovery: why healing might be finished, but you don’t feel better yet.
    Pain: Perhaps it isn’t a persistent injury that’s bothering you, but persistent pain.
    – Do you just need a good, long break? B-Boy ‘Off-Season’: written for B-Boys, but something everyone should think about.

    Fractures: a basic guideline, with approximate healing times.

  • Message to Parents: Worried breaking (B-Boying/B-Girling) may be dangerous for your young one? Well, first of all, I’m a Physiotherapist who has been breaking for a long time, and I think it’s fine. Maybe I am biased, but now I actually have some real research to show that breaking is no more dangerous than the majority of other sports.
