Some of the most common types of sports injuries include sprains, strains, and tears to the muscles, the ligaments (which connect bones and cartilage, form joints, and support organs), and the tendons (which connect muscles to bone). Other common injuries include dislocated joints and fractured bones, including vertebrae. Fortunately, Dr. Nicholas Locke of Locke Chiropractic Clinic specializes in treating sports injuries and can help you get back to your peak performance.
The first rule for a sports injury is to not “play through the pain.” If you have pain from a particular movement or activity you should always stop what you’re doing and seek medical treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic, such as Dr. Nicholas Locke, have specific training in evaluating and treating the ailments of athletes. Once the injury has been diagnosed, Dr. Nicholas Locke will utilize all available therapeutic methods, as well as video analysis, to help get you back in the game.
