Sports Injuries: The term “sports injury,” in the broadest sense, refers to the kinds of injuries that most commonly occur during sports or exercise. Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm-up and stretching.

Although virtually any part of your body can be injured during sports or exercise, the term is typically reserved for injuries that involve the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, and associated tissues like ligaments and tendons.

Auto Accidents/Work Injuries: Automobile Accidents usually result in trauma to the neck, but can also result in injuries to the low back, shoulders, or even the knee, elbow, or hip joint.

Neck injuries sustained in a automobile accident are usually referred to as whiplash, due to the violent nature of the sudden cervical distortion. This can result in damage to the ligaments and muscles of the neck and shoulder region.

Whiplash can cause damage to many structures, and in worst cases it can cause damage to spinal joints, discs, and nerves. These injuries should never be ignored as it can develop into chronic pain if not properly treated.

If you are injured in an automobile accident or work injury please contact us immediately to start treatment today! Waiting can result in development of adhesions in damaged tissue and require a longer treatment plan to resolve your injuries. Dr. Andersen will perform a thorough examination to locate and identify all the structures involved in your specific injury to provide the most effective treatment for your recovery.

Injuries of unknown origin: These type of injuries can be very difficult in determining the cause or origin. Most of the time these types of injuries are repetitive or postural and created by many different factors.

Many job requirements or activities of daily living can be very repetitive and stressful in nature and can result in fibrotic and tight and tender fascia or muscle tissue. This can result in adhesions, potential muscle spasming and severe pain. In more advanced cases nerve and joint pain can be involved as well, this usually results if symptoms are ignored or minimized.

Injuries of unknown origin usually start as a mild achy dull pain that seems to vary in frequency and intensity. These injuries will become more frequent and intense with time unless something changes. Don’t ignore your bodies subtle signs and allow your injury to progress in time to a more painful state.

Treatments of these injury types are often described as relaxing and uplifting due to the release of accumulated tension in the musculoskeletal system. Therapeutic Massage by Claire may be integrated into your treatment if myofascial involvement is significant. Exercises and stretching may be instructed for faster and more permanent results.
