Common Sports Injury Causes and Symptoms

Some sports injuries are so sudden and violent that there's little doubt about their cause. A brutal fall, tackle, or another impact can affect your spinal or extremity joint alignment, causing not only joint damage and soft tissue pain but also pinched nerve symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and loss of muscle strength. On the other end of the scale are those chronic sports injuries that grow slowly through repeated damage to tendons or muscles, resulting in nagging pain and inflammation. An existing alignment problem can make a sports injury worse, or make you more prone to sports injuries in the first place. 

Our Chiropractor Can Help You Heal

Our chiropractor at Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, Dr. Kothmann, can treat a great many kinds of sports injuries. We consider your symptoms, medical history, and chosen sport as we run X-rays and other diagnostic procedures to get a precise understanding of your individual sports injury. This gives us our "game plan" for creating a personalized sports injury and rehabilitation plan for you.

Chiropractic care is a highly effective form of sports injury treatment. By adjusting the alignment of dislodged vertebrae and vertebral discs, chiropractic adjustments can restore normal joint function, take abnormal stress off of muscles and nerves, and reduce your vulnerability to sports injuries such as runner's knee, golfer's/tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, neck or back injuries, and strains or sprains. We can also provide:

  • Graston Technique - This instrument-based technique releases internal scar tissue that inhibits motion.
  • Active Release Technique - ART uses a specific set of movements to manipulate tissues, easing pain and increasing mobility.
  • Strengthening and stretching exercises - Our customized exercise plans can target your weak points to rehabilitate injured muscles, lengthen muscles and ligaments to reduce injury risks, and strengthen the muscles that support your core.
  • Kinesio Taping - The advanced materials and taping methods used in Kinesio Taping can help manage pain, reduce swelling, and reinforce critical muscle groups.
