Sport Injuries

What are common sports-related injuries?

Sports participation is a great way to stay in shape and physically active. However, engaging in any type of sport can increase your risk for injuries in your neck, back, shoulders, arms, and legs.

Some of the most common sports-related injuries include:

  • Sprains
  • Dislocation
  • Tendon injuries
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Fractures or compression injuries

Many sports enjoyed by seasoned professionals and amateur athletes, like running, climbing and cycling, involve high-impact activity that increases your risk of injury from direct contact or overuse.

You may be more susceptible to sports-related injuries if you’re not warming up properly or if you have a history of previous injuries and poor form.

For athletes on all levels, not allowing sufficient recovery time between physical activities is also a contributing factor to painful sports-related injuries. This is especially true if you suffer an injury, like a sprain or strain during an activity, and don’t allow your body enough time to fully heal.

What treatments are available for sports-related injuries?

To help you recover completely from a sports injury, Dr. Notartomaso customizes a treatment plan that focuses on your needs as an individual. She often combines a variety of physical and rehabilitative therapies that focus on:

  • Relieving pain
  • Reducing inflammation 
  • Increasing stability
  • Increasing joint range of motion or flexibility
  • Improving mechanics

Dr. Notartomaso also offers manual therapies to help relax your muscles and trigger your body’s own healing processes, such as cupping, dry point needling, and soft tissue work.

How do I prevent sports-related injuries?

An athlete herself, Dr. Notartomaso is better equipped to provide comprehensive guidance and resources to prevent additional sports-related injuries. She offers training programs that strengthen your body and increase your endurance.

Dr. Notartomaso also takes a preventive approach to training, ensuring that you know proper form and warm-up techniques to reduce your risk factors for injury. She is certified in Functional Movement Screenings that allow her to evaluate your movement patterns and make suggestions for improving your performance both in and out of the game.

Through Work It sessions and/or a monthly membership in the Crush It program, Dr. Notartomaso provides you with the instructions and tools you need to become stronger, fitter, and ready to take on the challenges of your chosen sport.
