Sports injuries Q & A

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries include any body damage that occurs when playing a sport or engaging in physical activity. Exercise is good for your body and health, but it also puts extra stress on your muscles and joints, increasing the risk of injury.

Sports injuries may affect any part of the body. Common types of injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Concussion
  • Patellofemoral syndrome (knee injury)
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear
  • Rotator cuff tear

Accidents, overuse, and poor training habits may lead to a sports injury. If you injure yourself during physical activity, you need to stop to prevent more damage. 

Dr. Kyle has handled all types of sports injuries, personally and professionally. He was an athlete and played ice hockey, rugby, martial arts (karate, Brazilian jiu-jitsu), boxing, and army combatives.

What happens during evaluations for sports injuries?

Dr. Kyle and the team at Kurv O2, conduct a thorough evaluation when you come in for help with a sports injury. They first ask about your injury, how it happened, and your symptoms. They review your usual workout routine, diet, and medical history.

The team does a physical exam, posture analysis, and functional health assessment. They may also take X-rays to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. The team closely evaluates your body’s biomechanics, especially the arms and legs.

When evaluating and treating injuries, the team uses The Pettibon System®, a whole-body assessment and treatment guide that focuses on healing the whole body by correcting spinal misalignment and posture. 

The team can identify and treat muscle, tendon, and ligament tears.
