5 Common Sports Injuries

  2. Epicondylitis: inflammation and irritation to the muscles that attach to the inside or outside of the elbow (also called golfer's elbow or tennis elbow, respectively)
  3. Back pain: whether caused by a muscle spasm to a joint subluxation to whiplash to a disc herniation, your neck, upper, and lower back pain can also present with stiffness and numbness, pain, and weakness in the arms or legs
  4. Patellofemoral pain syndrome: also called runner's knee, this condition leads to pain and tenderness in the knee due to wearing down of the patellar joint
  5. Plantar fasciitis: heel and foot pain can be caused by irritation to the thick band on the underside of your foot (your plantar fascia, or arch)

How Our Chiropractor in Clayton Treats Sports Injuries

During the later (subacute) stages of recovery, or if you come to see us with a chronic sports injury, our focus of treatment will be on identifying hidden factors--such as postural imbalances, joint subluxations, and improper movement patterns/body mechanics--that are contributing to your symptoms. We also provide many of the same pain management services, with an emphasis on reducing scar tissue formation and restoring normal tissue mobility and strength. We achieve this through methods such as thorough postural screenings, neuro-muscular re-education, corrective exercises, rock tape, soft tissue mobilization, chiropractic adjustments, and more.
