Common Sports Injuries in Central FL
The weather in Florida is conducive to a variety of year-round outdoor sports. However, indoor sports may cause injuries as well. Common sports injuries among our clients who live in the central Florida area include:
Shoulder injuries including rotator cuff sprains, overuse injuries, dislocations, and shoulder instability concerns. You may experience pain, limited shoulder mobility or weakness in the shoulder joint.
Knee challenges such as runner’s knee, tendonitis, and dislocations. Knee injuries may be felt as instability in the knee, pain, limited range of motion or a clicking sensation.
Muscle strains occur when muscles are stretched. You may experience pain, inflammation or limited mobility.
Joint sprains that injure the connective tissues of a joint. A sprain may occur at any of the most commonly used joints such as your thumb, fingers, knees, shoulders, and ankles.
Concussions occur when your head impacts something hard such as the ground or another player’s head. You may experience symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, unfocused vision, and nausea.
Our chiropractor evaluates your condition to determine which of our techniques best meets your sports injury needs. For example, if you are experiencing symptoms of a concussion, our chiropractor may use gentle chiropractic adjustments to position your neck and back into an alignment that decreases pain and promotes healing. In other situations, we may apply kinesiology tape to support your muscles and joints while they are healing. Our chiropractors may also suggest massage therapy to decrease inflammation and improve your flexibility. We will teach you exercises to perform at home that help improve your joint stability and muscular balance.
