Sports Injuries

Sports injuries arise when an athlete (casual or professional) is unaware of limitations or vulnerabilities in his or her body and exercises in that state. When there is overtraining, a lack of conditioning, and incorrect form or imbalanced tactics, injuries occur.

For such instances, our ITM is a procedure that is both systematic and intensive. The predefined – but ever-changing – treatment plan employs LASER and other manual approaches to reduce pain, edema, and tissue damage.

Integrated Manual Therapy and Chiropractic adjustments help with recovery. Finally, we offer entire rehabilitation through flexibility training, mobilization, and stretching techniques to improve the athlete's range of motion and complete awareness of the muscle or joint.

Our goal with athletes is to help them gain a natural level of forces generation & application of the body part and pain-free and impact-tolerant functioning.

A ligament tear usually occurs due to extreme force on a joint such as with a fall or another high-impact event. Common ligament tears are to the ankle, knee, wrist, thumb, neck, or back ligaments. Pain and lack of stability in the joint are very common symptoms of a ligament tear. We follow an integrated treatment plan that first ensures stabilization and healing of the tear and adjoining areas. Gradually, we have a set of processes that use proprioceptive and strengthening exercises to ensure the loading of the joint. We have helped our patients recover from up to a Grade 3 tear without restorative surgery.

A muscle strain, or pulled muscle, occurs when your muscle is overstretched or torn. This usually occurs as a result of fatigue, overuse, or improper use of a muscle. People at the time of injury feel sharp pain followed by swelling, bruising, and redness. The most common muscle strain is the Hamstring strain. Using our integrated treatment model, we initiate pain management which includes techniques like Laser for faster healing, bracing (taping), etc. Gradually, we help the athlete in retraining the muscle and achieving full control.

The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides a cushion between your femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). It acts as a shock absorber and stabilizes the joint. There are two menisci in each knee joint. They can be damaged or torn during activities that put pressure on or rotate the knee joint. At this time of year, there is a popping sensation, and feels difficulty in bending and straightening the knee. Pain begins later once the inflammation sets in. At EEZ align our integrated treatment model give us the processes to work with any kind of tear. We work to control initial symptoms and then restore the normal range of motion. Rehabilitation in these cases includes strengthening and stabilization, log with various kinds of adjustments.

The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord that connects the muscles in the back of your calf to your heel bone. People with Achilles tendon tear hear a pop followed by an immediate sharp pain in the back of the ankle that is likely to affect the ability to walk properly. At EEZ align through our integrated treatment model we begin with symptomatic relief, bracing for Proper support, LASER, and gradual rehabilitation is included in the process.

Dislocation and Subluxations cause ligaments to become lax, and muscular weakening. This creates hypermobility and instability in a joint –that causes the bone to react to force and the joint moves out of alignment or the bone moves out of its socket again. A patient needs to be aware of any feeling of lack of control in a joint after the first episode of Dislocation and begin the treatment and rehabilitation. We work with our Integrated Treatment model to help restore strength, balance, and appropriate range of motion in such patients.

A rotator cuff injury is usually a strain or tear of the rotator cuff, because of a fall, car accident, or a sudden injury. In this, the muscles, tendons, and joint capsule stabilizes your shoulder. Develop a tear. People with rotator cuff injury have dull ache pain which often worsens with the use of an arm. In such cases, we begin with pain management, providing support and gradually strengthening the muscle and ligament around the shoulder. The goal of our Integrated Treatment Model is to rehabilitate the shoulder to move naturally in any direction without pain and discomfort.

A shin splint is a pain along the inside edge of the shinbone (tibia) due to inflammation of tissue in the area. Clients with shin splints feel a throbbing pain in the shin bones after the run or sprint. It happens due to weak leg muscles, improper warm-up, and insufficient recovery. Through our integrated treatment model, we aid rapid recovery through inflammation reduction. Gradually, we help with Strengthening and mobilization to restore full functioning.

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overloaded, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. This primarily happens in sports enthusiasts but has also now been seen in people who work on the laptop a lot. If you are experiencing a sharp pain on the outside of the elbow or swelling, this could be Tennis Elbow. We use a variety of techniques and intensity of work to help relieve the core issues.

A stress fracture is a fatigue-induced fracture of the bone caused by repeated stress over time. Instead of resulting from a single severe impact, stress fractures are the result of accumulated trauma from repeated loading of the foot, such as running or jumping. Clients at the time of fracture feel a sharp pain and have to stop their activities, however, it gets unnoticed in some cases for a long time. Our work in these cases is post-recovery from the stress fracture. We work with the patient to ensure strengthening and relapse prevention – which is very critical in these cases.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). It is quite common amongst runners, making it difficult to take the weight on the foot. Using our integrated treatment model, we begin with breaking down the stiffness across the band with Trigger point release and joint mobilization, etc. Eventually, we strengthen and ensure relapse prevention.

An adductor (groin) strain is a common problem among many individuals who are physically active, especially in competitive sports like football, soccer, hockey, basketball, tennis, figure skating, baseball, horseback riding, karate, softball, etc. Injury happens due to improper warm-up, misalignments, sharp blows, or a jerk. Clients with adductor strain feel pain and tenderness which worsens on activity continuation. We use our integrated treatment model and first focus on pain relief score and inflammation with the help of a variety of techniques like LASER. Following this, we use chiropractic management and extensive manual therapy-based rehabilitation gradually restore the length and the strength of adductors.

Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is muscle pain that begins after you’ve worked out. It normally starts a day or two after a workout.
