Sports Injuries Q & A

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries can happen to athletes at all levels and can happen very suddenly or develop over time the more you use specific motions. Some of them are mild and you can recover from them without much care, but others require comprehensive treatment plans and rehabilitation.  

At Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville, Dr. Young and the team evaluate your injury and can work with you toward restoring strength, flexibility, and other skills you need if you want to keep playing sports. They can provide holistic care on its own or to help you recover from surgery. 

What are some of the most common sports injuries?

Sports injuries often affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes your muscles, bones, and joints. Whether or not you take protective steps like stretching and warming up before play, taking rest days, and using protective equipment, you might be susceptible to sports injuries like:

  • Sprains 
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Contusions (bruises)

Some injuries are so common in particular sports that they have nicknames based on the sport they’re most common in. Examples include jumper’s knee, tennis elbow, and golfer’s elbow, though you can get these injuries in other sports or outside of athletics altogether too. 

Which treatments can help me recover from a sports injury?

Many athletes wonder when they can expect to return to playing their sport after they get an injury. With personalized care and rehabilitation, you can restore function and alleviate pain as quickly as possible as you work toward the goal of returning to your sport.
