What Type of Sports Injuries Does Cole Pain Therapy Group Treat?

 

We diagnose and treat both traumatic and non-traumatic sports injuries. Non-traumatic/ non-contact injuries result from mechanical overstress of anatomy due to restricted joints, muscle imbalance, and functional instability. Under the rigors of intense physical activity, this situation results in:

  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pains
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Neck pain
  • Rib pain
  • Back pain
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Bursitis
  • Shin splints
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Stress fracture

On the other hand, traumatic sports injuries involve sudden damage to anatomy. Through the healing process, the body will adapt to function with damaged tissue, and, even after healing of the initial injury, will continue to function poorly unless it is rehabilitated. Scarring and fibrosis predispose one to re-injury and compromise performance.

Following a careful examination, we sometimes refer a patient to orthopedics for treatment. The most important thing about treating sports injuries is to make sure that each patient receives the most effective treatment in accordance with each patient’s goals.
