Sports Injuries

Nicole R.

"Wellspring Health Center helped me improve my overall health and posture. I had a sports injury, making it extremely difficult to walk and perform day-to-day activities. I am now more aware of how to prevent tension and improve posture through stretching and exercise. The staff was/is extremely caring, supportive, and friendly. I enjoyed working with all of the therapists - everyone was great! They worked well with me even when my insurance provider wouldn't. I noticed 100% improvement in my health and mobility from my first consultation."

Mary E.

"I had a shoulder injury from swimming - over-usage maybe. I called my insurance's member services. They listed PT places in my area and Wellspring Health Center sounded the most interesting. The last two months have been rewarding to come to Wellspring. The staff is very considerate and courteous. I am now back to almost everything. I like the added value of learning how to improve my posture and strengthen my core."

Pat R.

"My low back was accidentally hit by a golf cart. I was in a lot of pain and sitting was difficult. I attended a golf workshop and staff from Wellspring Health Center were there offering a free massage. I learned more about them and went in for a consultation. I was very impressed with their holistic approach... In the past when I have gone other places for various injuries, I was given exercise sheets to do on my own with very little "coaching". At Wellspring all of the staff pay attention to how you are doing. The exercises follow a progression and build on the basics. I can honestly say Wellspring Health Center has made a lifelong impact on my life."

Dan M.

"I had low back pain from playing golf. I could not work a full day and could not play golf or do my exercises. After treatment at Wellspring Health Center, my core strength and flexibility was greatly improved. I even have a better golf swing -more powerful with less stress on my back! I would recommend Wellspring to anyone."

Michael C.

"I injured my neck while squatting and started having shooting pain into my head whenever I lifted weights. I was really upset. It turned out I also had terrible posture too. Wellspring Health Center has the best team of healthcare professionals. I have ever worked with and some of the kindest, nicest, most patient people I've had the pleasure of knowing. Thank You!"

Why did I sustain a sports injury?

One of the most important aspects of sports injury rehabilitation is treating it as soon as possible.

The term “sports injury” is all-encompassing, including any type of injury that occurs while performing the athletic activity.

It can happen just the same by lifting heavy weights at the gym or running in ill-fitted shoes, as it can by swinging a bat too aggressively or rolling your ankle on the soccer field.

Your treatment plan and duration of recovery will vary depending on how severe the injury is, your health history, and whether or not the injury requires surgical intervention.

Did you sustain one of these injuries?

There are a number of different injuries that can occur while performing an athletic activity.

However, the most common forms of sports injury include:

Shin splints

The medical term for shin splints is “medial tibial stress syndrome,” referring to pain that is felt in the shin bones. This pain is typically caused by stress placed on the shinbone and the connective tissues surrounding it. Shin splints are painful and often debilitating; however, they can be avoided by wearing proper footwear, warming up before exercise, and strengthening your core and leg muscles.

Knee injuries

Your knee is the most complex joint in your body and is, therefore, one of the most commonly injured body parts. Knee injuries may include dull aches that run from your hip to your knee, repetitive use injuries making it difficult to move the knee, or more severe injuries such as an ACL tear.

Strain or “pulled muscle”

A strain is also referred to as a “pulled muscle” and occurs when a tendon connecting your muscle to bone is stretched beyond its limits. Once the tendon is overstretched, it is more likely that it will be strained once again.

Sprain

A sprain occurs when a ligament connecting one bone to another is stretched beyond its limits. Once a sprain occurs and a ligament is overstretched, it is more likely that it’ll occur again.
