Patient Groups

Youth

1 in 3 youths in sports are injured seriously enough to miss practice or a game. The most common types of sports injuries among young athletes are sprains, muscle strains, bone or growth plate injuries, repetitive motion injuries, concussions and heat related illness.

Here is what we see in our younger patients:

  • the sooner they get treatment, the quicker they heal and get back to sports.
  • monthly check ups keep them performing well and helps prevent injury.
  • younger athletes who develop good recovery habits now will set them up for future success.

20-30’s

The things you do in your 20’s and 30’s will set you up for better health later in life.

Here is what we see in our patients in their 20’s and 30’s:

  • poor posture
  • obesity, have your doctor check your Body Mas Index (a BMI over 25 is not good)
  • lack of regular exercise
  • muscle imbalance
  • repetitive motion injuries to fascia and soft tissues
  • Injuries related to vehicle collisions, falls, sports setting injuries, and overtraining
  • poor health due to job stress and anxiety

40-50’s

Research shows that fitness declines with age, and it is during our 40’s when the body is going through a series of key changes that the drop is most marked. Muscle mass continues to drop and fat deposits begin to build up. Fortunately, regular exercise can slow muscle loss and improve bone density and flexibility. Decades of wear and tear on our bodies can start to show up as joint and muscle pain and inflammation.

Common issues include:

  • increased recovery time from exercise and injury
  • sprains and strains become more frequent
  • Achilles tendonitis & Plantar fasciitis/heel pain
  • herniated discs in the neck and low back
  • numbness in the hands and feet
  • shoulder impingement / rotator cuff and labral tears
  • degenerative arthritis in the knees and hips
  • a variety of soft tissue and fascial injuries

  • musculoskeletal problems
  • degenerative arthritis
  • overuse injuries
