Sports Injuries

“Having Dave as my PT has been a Godsend. I am a marathon swimmer in need of work done for my back. I was having discomfort flipping my turns (of which there are many in a 25-yard pool) and finding enough core strength that wouldn’t aggravate my back for generating power in my stroke. With twice weekly sessions and then tapering to once weekly, my lower back muscle knots & strains slowly subsided so that I am pain free. Thanks to Dave, I’m now swimming 4-5 miles without complaints .” - Robyn S.

TWIST, ROLL, BUCKLE, POP!

Sports injuries can happen at any given time - out for a run and step in a pothole, turn to catch a fly ball or plant that foot to kick the game winner. When you experience pain that is your body telling you that something is wrong. Often the pain subsides fairly quickly but that doesn't mean that the injury is healed. Did your pain subside only to leave you with instability, weakness or stiffness? Do you still have pain weeks after your sprained ankle? While every injury is different here are the most common sports injuries.
