Most Common Sports Injury Problems That Stop You Doing What You Love
There is a vast range of sports injuries that you may suffer when you’re in action, from minor strains and bumps to major problems like tears, I have treated them all and have built a reputation as the leading sports injury expert in New York City.
However, there are a few injuries that we see come through our clinic doors more often than everything else, no matter what sport, hobbies or profession our active patients take part in.
Often the only solution athletes, performers and weekend warriors are offered by their doctor is pills, injections, or surgery, which all have serious health risks and often fail to deliver the long-term relief, and full recovery you are desperate for.
Knee pain is a common problem that affects people of all ages and can be caused by various factors. Knee pain can range from mild discomfort to severe pain, making it difficult to push yourself to the limits that you want in the gym, on the court, or on stage.
Fortunately, there are natural, safe, and fast-acting ways to relieve knee pain and overcome serious knee injuries like ACL tears, and dislocations that don’t involve resting, slowing down, or masking the pain with pills or injections.
Rotator Cuff Injuries
A rotator cuff injury is typically caused by progressive wear and tear of the tendons around your shoulder, although a rotator cuff tear can happen as a result of trauma or a bad lift in the gym.
Often the advice is to rest, avoid overhead movements and wait for it to fix itself.
However, any short-term relief this provides is often quickly canceled out when you get back to CrossFit, dancing, or playing sports.
Thankfully, there are safe, non-invasive treatments that can relieve rotator cuff pain, and help you recover quickly from rotator cuff tears and other shoulder injuries.
