Kickboxing is a popular workout that can help you lose weight, stay in shape, and build muscle. But because it is a high-intensity workout, it’s possible that you can injure yourself while kickboxing. In this physical therapy education article, we are going to discuss some of the potential injuries a person can sustain while kickboxing, and how physical therapy can help treat these injuries.
Kickboxing is an exercise that involves a combination of kicking and punching (sometimes with bags or dummies) in quick succession. It’s a great workout, but can result in a variety of injuries, such as:
- Knee Injuries (ACL, MCL tears)
- Foot Injuries (Ankle Sprains)
- Hand & Wrist Injuries (Sprains or Broken Bones)
- Hip Injuries (Dislocation, Bursitis)
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
Physical Therapy for Kickboxing Injuries
Working with an experienced sports physical therapist can make a huge difference in your injury recovery. A rehabilitation specialist can put together an exercise recovery strategy for you, taking into account your injury, medical history, and overall health. These stretches and exercises will be tailored specifically for you with the goal of improving your range-of-motion, reducing your pain, and getting you back to kickboxing in no time.
