Amateur and professional athletes who pursue practically any sport may sustain injuries from time to time. While high-impact sports can cause serious injuries, any activity that places repetitive strain on the musculoskeletal system, such as tennis elbow, can produce problems over time, especially if a pre-existing spinal misalignment aggravates the stress on certain joints.
Tennis involves frequent swings of the racket, constant dashing across courts of varying hardness, and a great deal of spinal bending and twisting, can leave its enthusiasts suffering from a wide range of acute and/or chronic injuries. At Holliston Spine & Sports Center our chiropractor, Dr. Krupa, employs natural therapies, from spinal adjustment and massage to kinesiology taping, so that these injuries can heal naturally, without surgery, while relieving patients' pain and strengthening their bodies against future injuries.
Other joints can fall prey to tennis injuries as well. Sprained ankles usually occur when the player jumps or runs in such a way that the foot turns outward upon landing, tearing the ligaments of the outer ankle. While the majority of sprained ankles involve the anterior talofibular ligament, severe sprains may involve other ligaments as well and can lead to chronic problems without proper treatment and careful rehabilitation to restore strength and flexibility to the joint. Patella tendonitis, an affliction of the kneecap, and torn rotator cuffs are also common tennis injuries.
Our combination of natural, non-invasive techniques can help tennis injuries heal more rapidly and normally than they might on their own. Spinal adjustment can correct any imbalances that might be contributing to these injuries while relieving nerve impingements, while physical therapy, strengthening exercises and other prescribed treatments aid in rehabilitation. Let us help with your pain management and healing for your tennis injuries.
