Sports Injuries

What are common sports injuries?

If you lead an active lifestyle, you may be at risk of a sports injury. Injuries often occur due to overuse, poor conditioning, or by accident. Some of the most common sports injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Knee or shoulder injuries
  • Shinbone pain

The most important thing you can do if you think you’ve incurred an injury is to stop playing. If you continue to work out after an injury, you may make it worse. To support your body’s natural healing process, Dr. Weinberg recommends rest, ice, compression, and elevation of your injured body part until you can get to the office for an evaluation. 

What can I expect during a sports-injury consultation?

Dr. Weinberg specializes in sports injuries and has helped athletes, weekend warriors, and Olympians recover and get back to doing the things they love. He conducts comprehensive examinations when you come to the office with concerns about a sports injury. During your exam, he reviews your medical history and symptoms and conducts a physical exam.

He may perform various functional tests on the affected body part to help determine the underlying cause of your pain. In some cases, diagnostic tests may be recommended to rule out fractures. 

What are the treatments for a sports injury?

Dr. Weinberg takes a conservative approach to chiropractic care. But his goal is the same as yours: reduce pain, improve function, and help you recover as quickly as possible. He creates a customized treatment plan based on the type of injury you have, your symptoms, and your overall health.

Some of the treatments he utilizes for sports injuries include:

  • Traditional chiropractic care
  • Physical therapy procedures
  • Massage therapy
  • Active release technique (ART) muscle work
  • Spinal decompression

Dr. Weinberg is board certified in physical therapy modalities and uses advanced techniques, including ultrasound and electrotherapy, to assist in the healing process. To improve muscle strength and coordination as you recover from your injury, Dr. Weinberg may also design a rehabilitation program that includes targeted exercises and stretching.

In addition to helping you recover from your injury, Dr. Weinberg also provides you with the tools you need to prevent a recurrence and improve your overall performance.
