Help for Sports Injuries at Dearborn Health

happy guys golfingWhether you’re a diehard CrossFitter, avid cyclist, occasional golfer, or ultra runner, you’re likely to experience a sports injury at one time or another. Injuries can happen and we are here to help. At Dearborn Health, we observe two primary causes behind sports injuries: traumatic events and repetitive strain.

Traumatic events usually occur suddenly, leading to immediate muscle pulls or tears. Repetitive strains, on the other hand, result from performing a specific activity over and over, like serving in tennis. These repetitive motions can lead to muscle strain and, over time, significant injury.

Common Causes of Sports Injuries

We notice that some common causes of sports injuries include muscle imbalances, improper or lack of warm-up, and pushing oneself too hard and too quickly. Progressing too fast to add more activities to a training program can also lead to injuries.

Taking a Multifaceted Approach

Our team of chiropractors, physiotherapists, trainers, pedorthists and massage therapists work together to evaluate and treat the injury using modalities that include the following:

Our practice also incorporates myofascial release techniques and joint mobilization adjustments, which play a vital role in recovering from injuries and restoring muscle function.

Prevention Measures and Strength and Conditioning

We strongly believe in prevention, and the adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We recommend strength and conditioning programs to help identify or correct any imbalance issues that we find during our assessments. Strength conditioning, flexibility work, and education about safe activities and gradual progression within a sport can significantly reduce the onset of a sports injury.
