Injuries doing the sport you love or for some of you the sport that pays you are no fun. Research tells us that the largest risk factor for injury is previous injury which is why the right treatment and rehab is so essential. In many cases sports injuries occur from things in your control and there are signs and symptoms beyond pain that you can look out for.
Common causes include:
- Prolonged or abnormally severe muscle soreness
- Limited ranges of motion
- Discomfort with certain movements eg hip pain during a squat
- Long recovery times or significant fatigue
- Noticeable size or strength differences between left and right sides of the body
Failing to address issues like these may lead to injuries like:
- Shoulder pain (rotator cuff disorder, bursitis etc)
- Knee pain (patella tendonitis, ligament strains, meniscus tears etc)
- Hip pain (Pinched hip, Labral tear, osteitis pubis etc)
- Rolled ankles
- Muscle tears (hamstring, quad etc)
- Other overuse type injuries
Treating Sporting Injuries:
Working with athletes and athletic people is what we are known for at North Fremantle Chiropractic. With a focus not just on rehabilitation but also sports performance many people trust the team at NFC to help them be their best.
The first step in helping you manage and prevent your problem is to ensure we have an accurate diagnosis. We achieve this through a comprehensive clinical history, thorough physical examination including; neurological, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal tests, and possibly further diagnostic investigations such as X-Rays (if required).
Once our team has all the information required to make an accurate diagnosis, we will explain our findings to you in a simple and concise manner. Based on the information we collect, we can then tailor a treatment plan specific to your condition and goals. Our team is dedicated to helping you manage and prevent shoulder injuries in a holistic manner, so you can get back to doing what you love. If at any stage we determine that you need to be referred out to another provider we will be sure to find the right people for you.
