These injuries may be related to sports or minor trauma such as a fall.

Tendons can tear as result of a single traumatic event or become injured as result of repetitive movement causing inflammation or what is known as tendinitis (acute repetitive injury) or tendinitis (chronic repetitive injury).

He is based in the areas of Roodepoort and Krugersdorp and his specialist role is to promote early healing and to prevent the formation of scar tissue so that you can return to activity sooner with less chance for re-injure.
Muscular strain is tearing of the muscular fibres that occur when you apply load to the muscle in stretch. If the load is too heavy for the muscle, or the muscle overstretches because of lack of flexibility or lack of warm up the nervous system supplying the muscular fibres will cause an automatic reflex contraction. It is this automatic response together with increased stretch of the muscle that will tear the muscular fibres.

Ligaments injury occurs when traumatic movements stretch the ligaments past their maximum degree of motion, resulting in a tear or what is commonly known as a sprain. Ligament damage can also occur from repetitive joint movement when muscular protection is reduced as a result from fatigue. This excessive stress causes minor strains which results in scar tissue formation. Scar tissue results in the development of niggles and causes faulty bio-mechanics which increases your risk for major injury.
