We work with repetitive strain and sports injuries, as well as work-related and auto injuries. That means we frequently treat patients with neck pain, back pain, and upper or lower extremity pain. These conditions are generally called neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries because they involve the nerves, muscles, and joints in the body. Specifically, neuromusculoskeletal injuries also usually involve the connective tissues: tendons, ligaments, fascia, and disks.
People are often familiar with strains and sprains, but another condition they probably should also understand is enthesopathy. Enthesopathy is a painful disorder occurring at the site of attachment of muscles, tendons, and ligaments to bones or joint capsules. These enthesopathies are some of the most common but stubborn injuries people know as:
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfer’s Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis - foot pain
- Frozen Shoulder - capsulitis
- Groin pull Common Enthesopathies we treat
- Hip Bursitis
- Hamstring pull
- Shin Splints
- Achilles tendonitis
- IT Band Syndrome - lateral thigh/knee pain
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome - shoulder tendonitis
Our formula for the successful treatment of many strains, sprains, tendinopathies, and enthesopathies includes Active Release Techniques, High Power Laser Therapy, LED light therapy, Kinesio and Rock taping, and other modalities such as orthopedic supports and rehabilitative resistance stretching, foam roller work, physio ball exercises, and nutritional support.
