Sports injuries range from extremity pain to back and neck pain, ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, knee tracking disorders, hip pain, piriformis syndrome, shoulder pain, elbow and wrist/ hand pain.
When to Address a Sports Injury
Sports injuries should be addressed as soon as possible. Playing with an injury can ultimately lead to associated dysfunction that can further debilitate the athlete and not only affect their performance, but eventually force the player to stop participating all together. The goal is simple. Treat the injury to not only reduce pain, but to improve the function and rehabilitate the injured area so the athlete can resume normal play in the shortest time possible.
