At ProClinix, we effectively treat a number of common sports injuries as well as train and educate our athletic patients to prevent future injuries in their sport. Listed below are the most common athletic injuries we treat in our three clinic locations in Ardsley, Pleasantville and Armonk, NY.
Achilles Tendinitis – The Achilles’ tendon, which is located at the back of the ankle, can become inflamed and painful when overused from running or jumping. Acute Achilles tendinitis can worsen over time and become a chronic problem if it is not treated appropriately.
Concussion – This is a brain injury that occurs due to a blow to the head, particularly common in contact sports. Individuals with concussion may experience symptoms such as dizziness, headache, visual disturbances, balance problems, amnesia, concentration difficulties and nausea.
Groin strain – This involves the adductor muscles of the upper thigh, and the strain often results from a sudden change in direction when running. Athletes who have this injury may suffer from sharp pain, swelling, and on occasion, bruising on the affected thigh.
Shin splints – Inflammation of the muscles around the shinbone can cause splint-like pain on the inside of the bone. Shin splints can result from a sudden increase in the intensity of the workout, wearing worn out footgear, or running/jumping on hard surfaces.
Lower Back Pain – Athletes can be affected by different types of lower back pain, such as back spasms, bulging discs and sciatica. Sports related lower back pain is commonly caused by inappropriate stretching, but there can also be other causes.
Pulled muscle – Many factors can cause any athlete to pull a muscle, such as improper warming up, tiredness, inflexibility and muscle weakness. Hamstrings and calves are two of the most commonly affected group of muscles.
Elbow injuries – Tennis elbow involves degeneration of the elbow tendon causing pain on the outside of the elbow, which happens as a result of continuous backhand strokes. Golf elbow commonly involves injury and inflammation to the inside of the elbow, but can affect the outside as well.
Ankle sprain – Ankle sprains are common in sports that require movements such as running, jumping and quick turning, which can result in twisting of the ankle and a possible tendon/ligament tear.
Shoulder injury – Shoulder dislocations, strains and sprains are very common sports injuries, especially in sports that involve overhead movement. It can happen as a result of overuse which loosens the shoulder tendons and muscles. Athletes with shoulder injuries may experience pain, slipping of the shoulder, stiffness and weakness.
Knee injuries – More than half of all sport injuries affect the knee. “Runner’s knee” is the name given to a group of knee injuries that involve kneecap-related pain, which despite its name, is not limited to runners. Athletes can develop runner’s knee due to irritation or deterioration of the region below the kneecap as a result of overuse or arthritis
