Sports Injuries & Orthopedics
If you injured yourself in a sports-related activity like running, biking, hiking, CrossFit, rock climbing, standup paddle board or surfing, we can help you get back to your sport faster and stronger than you may be able to with traditional physical therapy.
Outside of a traumatic injury, we’ve learned that most unresolved pain syndromes are due to an overall weakness or imbalance in the body that forces a specific area to take more of the load, eventually breaking down.
Your Injury Can be Treated Successfully Without Surgery
For example a well-intended person wants to get in shape by starting a running program and begins to have knee pain. Often the root cause is poor hip strength, allowing the knee to have abnormal motion. In most of these cases, it is a little bit of “bad mechanics” repeated many times under the weight of your own body that caused your injury.
In our experience, the knee pain usually resolves with good foundational training, even though the X-rays/MRI may show degeneration or a tear. Here at Restoration Healthcare, we feel that this approach is worth two to four weeks of care to see if it can help. This is also true for many areas of the body that hurt from participating in sports such as Bootcamp, CrossFit, triathlon training or simply working out at the gym.
If any of this strikes a chord, give us call. We’re open Monday through Friday from 8am-6pm.
We also offer a number of options for controlling pain that resulted from sports injury, including:
- Hands-on manual body work by our in-house osteopath ( Sunny Raleigh, DO) or chiropractor (Dr. Thomas S. Bakman, DC, FAFICC)
- Prescribed non-narcotic topical pain creams
- Non-steroidal joint injection (including ozone)
- Prescribed oral medication.
