Treating (and Preventing Future) Sports Injuries
Our team has the advanced training and state-of-the-art tools necessary to help sports injury patients recover quickly and effectively.
First, we take the time to thoroughly evaluate your condition and the circumstances surrounding it, including talking with you about how the injury may have happened and how its symptoms are affecting you.
Once we have all the information we need, we can then recommend a course of treatment that best suits your particular needs – both in relieving symptoms and increasing future prevention, if needed. Parts of a treatment plan might include:
- Changes to workout/exercise routines
- Changes to footwear
- The use of custom orthotics to redistribute forces across the feet
- Stretching and exercise routines to condition and strengthen more vulnerable areas and their connecting elements
- Advanced treatments such as shockwave therapy and MLS laser therapy to accelerate the recovery of soft tissues
Surgery is rarely required, and is only recommended if conservative forms of treatment haven’t been or would not be effective. If surgery is a consideration, we will fully discuss all of your options with you and answer any questions you may have.
