Common Types of Sports Injury We Treat
Dr. T.C. Bhakta and Dr. Rodriguez help children, young adults, adults, and seniors heal from a range of sports-related injuries that can cause a great deal of pain and dysfunction. The most common ones we see include:
- Runner's knee
- Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow

- Tendon tears and inflammation
- Muscle spasms and strains
- Neck and back pain
- Pinched nerves
- Joint pain, including pain in the knee, shoulder, wrist, and elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
What these sports injuries have in common is that they tend to present with pain, swelling, inflammation, and reduced range of motion, depending on the stage of injury (acute vs chronic). In our experience, most of sports injuries also come about due to other underlying issues.
Risk Factors for Sports Injury
Our Mesa chiropractors can help heal your sports injury, but we don't want to stop at just treating your symptoms. We'll also help you understand specific factors that contributed to your sports injury in the first place. By addressing these, you can avoid future re-injury or chronic dysfunction.
Some common risk factors for sports injury include overtraining, poor technique or body mechanics, old areas of scar tissue or hidden postural imbalances, improper footwear or equipment, playing surface, and style of play (e.g., jumping, pivoting, full contact). Even high stress and poor sleep increase the risk of our athletes who get injured!
