Sports Injury Care at Thornhill Chiropractic

The expression that "Motion is Lotion" is an important one to adapt in your daily language. People who are involved in fitness on a regular basis are generally in healthier condition. A lifestyle that includes exercise helps to improve cardiovascular performance, reduce preventable injuries and increase daily energy. People who regularly exercise report that they are happier and more productive in their lives.

Exercising regularly can also lead to potential injuries in muscles, ligaments and joints. The care of sports related injuries is very critical to maintain a consistent fitness routine. Ignoring sports injuries can eventually lead to chronic pain and immobility. If you have suffered an injury as a result of sports that you are playing or a fitness routine that you are involved in, it is important that you receive proper assessment, diagnosis and treatment for your condition. Dr. Kleinberg has a vast amount of experience treating many different types of sports related injuries including:

  • Shin splints

  • Tennis elbow

  • Rotator cuff tendinitis

  • Achilles tendinitis

  • Neck and lower back strain

  • Golfer's elbow

  • Runner's knee

  • Goalkeeper's thumb

  • Bursitis of the hip

  • Ankle sprains

  • Ligament injuries of the knee

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Muscular strains and bruises

If you have suffered an acute (recent) injury of muscle and/or joint you should try to rest that area and not continue to play in your sport or continue with your regular fitness routine. If the pain is intense and there is swelling related to it, it is advised that you use ice packs for up to 15 minutes of application. Lower body injuries should be elevated to reduce swelling. Remember, avoiding treatment for acute sports injuries can lead to long-term pain and restriction of movement. Early intervention and treatment is the best approach to all sports injuries.
