Our variety of treatment methods allows us to meet the needs of each patient and help everyone return to a pain-free life.
Types of Sports Injuries

Sports Injury Risk Factors
You can't predict when you will sustain an injury, but there are common risk factors to look out for:
- Over-training, including not giving yourself sufficient rest and trying to push too far beyond your current ability and physical capacity
- Poor technique and body mechanics
- Environmental factors, including running surface, weather, and equipment quality or fit
- Challenging demands of the sport, like jumping or pivoting
- Hidden underlying postural imbalances or areas of weakness or restricted mobility
- Poor sleep and nutrition
