Sports Injury Pain Treatment Q & A

by John Pinto, D.C.

What is sports injury pain treatment?

Sports medicine involves the treatment of pain and injuries that occur through participation in sports. Treatment and therapies for sports injury pain can enhance performance, reduce the risk of injuries before they happen, and aid in faster recovery. Sports injuries can be the result of accidents, improper training, or insufficient stretching. Some of the most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations.

What are some common sports injuries?

No matter the sport, the body is prone to a sports injury. Many sports injuries are the result of damage to muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. Some of the most common sports injuries treated at Advanced Wellness of Westfield include:

  • Sprains – the stretching or tearing of the connective tissues known as ligaments.
  • Strains – stretching or tearing of the muscle or tendons.
  • Knee injuries – a common sports injury due to the intricate compilation of bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons that make up the knee. The most common knee injuries include sprains, strains, ligament and tendon tears, fractures, or dislocation.
  • Achilles tendon injuries - the Achilles tendon attaches the heel bone to the calf muscle. Damage to the Achilles is common among athletes, due to abrupt or sudden movements.
  • Rotator cuff injuries - overuse, sudden movement, or wear and tear, can cause the tendon in the rotator cuff to tear.
  • Dislocations - can occur in any of your body’s joints, including knees, hips, ankles, or shoulders.
  • Tennis elbow - refers to injured muscles and tendons that attach to the elbow. Not just for tennis players, tennis elbow results from repetitive use of the forearm and wrist.

What are the most common treatment options for sports injuries?

Advanced Wellness of Westfield offers comprehensive care for sports injuries to reduce pain and restore normal functioning. Using the initial symptoms, Dr. Pinto and his staff work together to discover the underlying cause of the pain and develop a treatment plan. The first goal is to reduce the initial pain, followed by spinal adjustments to improve the condition. Dr. Pinto and his team will also coach the patient towards wellness with corrective exercises, stretching, and other therapies to help heal the injury and strengthen the body. Advanced Wellness of Westfield offers treatments in combination with chiropractic care, such as Cold Laser Therapy, to aid in treating repetitive stress injuries. Cold Laser Therapy is non-invasive, delivering a pulse of light energy to damaged cells, which breaks them down and allows the body to create new, healthy tissue.
