Common Sports Injuries
We treat many sports injuries, including knee pain, hip pain, ankle sprains, rotator cuff tears, elbow pain/tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, etc. Sports Injuries can be caused by trauma, overuse, improper footwear, and over-training.
If you have been sidelined by injuries, we know what you are going through. Not being able to participate fully and/or not being able to reach your goals can be very frustrating. Sports injuries were the reason that Dr. Folweiler first sought chiropractic care. He had excellent results and was able to return to competition. Dr. Folweiler was so inspired that he became a chiropractor to help athletes like you.
Sports injuries often stem from a variety of factors. Faulty movement patterns can set you up to get injured. Improper posture and stiffness can be associated with excess motion in other areas. Weakness of some muscle groups can cause compensation. We work to evaluate your whole body and correct dysfunction that may be distant to the site of injury to insure that future injuries are less likely and you can compete at your best.
Fortunately, chiropractic care can be very effective in treating most sports injuries. Our goal is to restore your health to you as quickly as possible and get you back to doing the sport you love. We use a combination of hands-on therapies with tools (Graston) and rehabilitation exercises tailored to your specific injury, body type, condition, and compensation patterns. We can also work with you to make you more resistant to future injuries. If pain is preventing you from enjoying what you love, let us see if we can help.
We would love the opportunity to help you return to your sport. When you come in for your first appointment, you will have a consultation and examination with Dr. Folweiler that is specifically designed to uncover the cause of your injuries. If we can help, we will recommend the most effective care for your unique situation.
