Sports And Performance Injury

Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is pain or inflammation on the outside of the arm near the elbow, where the muscles and tendons in the forearm attach to the elbow’s bony area.

Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is pain or inflammation on the inside of the arm near the elbow, where the muscles and tendons in the forearm attach to the elbow’s interior bony.

Shoulder Pain / Shoulder Instability

Shoulder pain is any type of pain that occurs in the joints, tendons or muscles in or around the shoulder area.  In many cases, pain is due to an injury related to the rotator cuff.  Read More …

Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff consists of four muscles that connect the bones in the shoulder, namely the humerus (upper arm) and the scapula (shoulder blade).  Injury can occur to any one of the four muscles Read More …

Stress Fracture

A stress fracture is an injury that can occur from overuse or extended use over a long period of time.   A stress fracture causes tiny cracks in the bone, but unlike a regular bone fracture that occur

Ligament Sprain/Muscle

Strain

Sprains and strains occur from overstretching ligaments, muscles, or tendons, and can even result in partial or complete tears.  A strain results from an overstretching of muscles or tendons Read More …

Meniscus Tears

A meniscus tear occurs when there is a partial or full tear in one of the two menisci that are located within the knee joint.  A meniscus is a C-shaped disc composed of cartilage in the knee

ACL/PCL Tear

ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears are common knee injuries, especially for athletes.   The ACL and PCL are two of four ligaments that stabilize the knee join Read More …

MCL / LCL Sprain or Tear

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are two of four ligaments in the knee that provide stability to the knee joint, along with the ACL and PCL. The MCL is locate Read More …

Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation, irritation, or degeneration of tissue of the Achilles tendon, causing pain in the heel or in the lower leg above the heel.  The Achilles tendon connects Read More …

Shin Splints

Shin splints are an injury causing pain along the lower front of the leg (along the front and inside edge of the shin).  The pain is caused by stress on the shinbone (tibia) and the connective tissues Read More …

Arthritis

There are many type of arthritis, a condition that primarily causes inflammation, pain and limited mobility in the joints. Symptoms of arthritis are caused by a breakdown of cartilage surrounding the joint, which normally acts like a shock absorber and prevents bones from rubbing together.

Biceps Tendonitis

Biceps tendonitis is a condition that causes pain and weakness in the front of the shoulder and the upper arm due to inflammation and irritation of the biceps tendon.  There are two tendons that attach the biceps muscle in the upper arm to the shoulder joint – the long head and the short head biceps.

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder, is a condition in which the shoulder cannot be moved normally due to pain and inflammation in the joint capsule of the shoulder.  Limited range of motion not only occurs when the individual tries to move the shoulder, but even if shoulder movement is forced.

Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is pain or inflammation on the inside of the arm near the elbow, where the muscles and tendons in the forearm attach to the elbow’s interior bony area.   In some cases, a partial tear of the tendon, which attaches the muscles to the bone of the elbow.

Rotator Cuff Injury

The rotator cuff is a set of four muscles and surrounding tendons that connect the humerus (upper arm bone) to the shoulder joint, allowing the arm to rotate and lift.  Tears to the muscles or tendons in the rotator cuff can be partial or complete and can happen as a result of a sudden trauma or fall.

Shoulder Impingement

Shoulder impingement occurs when pressure is placed on the rotator cuff from part of the shoulder blade when the arm is lifted.  The tendons of the rotator cuff become compressed between the shoulder blade and the humerus (upper arm bone), causing inflammation (leading to tendonitis or bursitis).

Shoulder Instability

Chronic shoulder instability occurs when loose ligaments within the shoulder joint make it more likely that the humerus (upper arm bone) will repeatedly dislocate or slip out of place from the shoulder socket.

Shoulder Sprain/Strain

A shoulder sprain or strain involves an injury to the soft tissues of the shoulder.    Sprains involve injury to ligaments (the bands of tissue that connect bones together) and strains refer to injuries of muscles and tendons.

Shoulder Tendonitis/Bursitis

The terms shoulder tendonitis and shoulder bursitis are often used to indicate that there is inflammation within the shoulder joint, either to the tendons of the rotator cuff or the bursa, the fluid filled sac surrounding the tendons. As the tendons and bursa become inflamed, 




they thicken and it becomes more difficult to move the shoulder joint without pain and stiffness.
