Stop Letting Sports Injuries Hold You Back

Most of our active and athletic patients come in with sports injuries, and they have no idea how it happened and why it is now occurring. It can be a very frustrating experience for the patient dealing with these sports injuries.

Often these sports injuries prevent you from exercising, partaking in your activity of choice, and competing. This can last for weeks and months if you are not adequately diagnosed and treated for your sports injury.

Unfortunately, many who suffer from sports injuries will go to their primary care physician or orthopedist. If there is no structural damage, they will be told to rest for 6-8 weeks but not offered any solution and prevention for the sports injury.

Patients do not want surgery or long periods of rest if they do not need that. There typically are alternatives that are conservative and can yield lasting results.

What is a Sports Injury?

Sports injuries refer to the kinds of injuries that occur during sports or exercise.

While it is possible to injure any part of the body when playing sports, the term sports injury is commonly used to refer to injuries of the musculoskeletal system.

Some of the most common sports injuries include:


  • Sprains—tears to the ligaments that join the ends of bones together. The ankles, knees, and wrists are commonly affected by sprains.
  • Strains—pulls or tears of muscles or tendons (the tissues that attach the muscles to the bones)
  • Fractures of the bones
  • Dislocation of joints  

Injury Resilience

As an athlete and/or an active person, one of the best qualities we can help you achieve is to become injury resistant. Often you hear the word injury prevention, but the reality is, absolute prevention is not possible. But we can help you become injury resistant with the right type of treatment, corrective exercises, and advice.  

Improving your injury resistance does three things

  • Decrease chance of getting injured
  • Decrease the severity of the injury
  • Increase recovery time from the injury

We focus heavily on injury resistance measures with our patients to help them get better and stay better. If you are dealing with any sports injuries or over-use strain, we encourage you to call our office and schedule a new patient exam. Our doctors will provide you with the best conservative treatment options for your condition and goals.
