If you’re an athlete, whether it is intramural, city league, recreational, professional, or retired, you understand the numerous demands of participating in any sport. Sports injuries such as sprains, strains, dislocations, and over exertion can occur at any time when participating in a sport. For example, baseball pitchers often experience rotator cuff and shoulder problems. Soccer players frequently have hip and leg issues, and your weekend warrior could do anything from pulling a muscle running the local 10K, to twisting an ankle at Tuesday night’s open basketball at the local gym. Regardless of your age, ability level, or chosen activities, we can make improvements to your quality of life, educate you how to remain injury-free, and maximize your physical performance.
