Sports Injuries Q & A

What are common sports injuries?

Sports injuries are often related to either acute injuries sustained during athletic activity like fractures, strains, joint injuries and dislocations or chronic injuries like tendonitis or tennis elbow due to the excessive wear and tear an athlete’s body is subjected to. For example, runners, regardless if the patient is a weekend fun-runner or a competitive professional, are at risk of injury to their ankles, knees, hips, and back from the repetitive strain on their feet while running while soccer players, who can also develop chronic injuries, are more likely to sprain or fracture an ankle due to the quick changes of direction involved in their sport. The team at Active Medical Center specializes in diagnosing and treating sports injuries such as runner’s knee, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, back, and neck pain, and sprains and strains with a combination of medical treatment, rehabilitation, chiropractic care, and functional medicine.

How are sports injuries treated?

The team at Active Medical Center provides comprehensive and customized treatment for sports injuries with the goals of healing the patient and restoring their strength, flexibility, and range of motion so that they can return to their sport, stronger than before. When patients arrive at Active Medical Center with a sports injury, a member of the team will examine the sports injury and discuss the patient’s medical history to help diagnose the injury and any related conditions. Then a comprehensive treatment plan will be developed to address any pain and heal the injury. Treatment may involve medical treatments, functional care, rehabilitative care, and chiropractic care to ensure that the patient receives all of the necessary treatment and support to get back to training and competition. In some cases, the patient may have joint or trigger point injections if necessary to further facilitate healing.

What can athletes do to avoid further injury?

Treatment from the team at Active Medical Center includes a rehabilitative element that helps patients rebuild their strength, flexibility, and range of motion so that their bodies are better equipped to avoid re-injury. Also, many athletic patients come for regular chiropractic care which helps keep their bodies in correct alignment and functioning properly. Physical therapy can also help address any muscle imbalances or weaknesses that may have led to the injury in the first place. The goal of all treatments for sports injuries is to first heal the patient and second, help them to be stronger and able to avoid future injuries.
