Sports Injuries

Sports can be a lot of fun, but they can also be dangerous. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, or just starting off, you’re bound to have a sports injury at some point. It’s important to take proper care of any injury properly before you return to your sport, to prevent further injury. We can help you with that!


A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that alters the function of the brain and should be taken seriously. They may occur from a direct blow to the head or indirectly when forces from another part of the body are transferred to the head. The resulting impact can result in a rapid or delayed onset of symptoms, typically within 24-48 hours. Learn more about how to recognize the signs of a concussion and what the recovery process and return to sport time frame will look like.

ACL Injuries

An ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) rupture is a devastating injury for anyone, and it immediately puts an athlete’s career on hold for an extended time and they are occurring much more frequently today than they were even 15 years ago. Some of the factors that may be contributing to this increase are artificial surfaces, more aggressive footwear, and increased training times. Learn more about what to expect during the recovery process and about the return to sport timeline.

"Professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable group. My planned bucket list trip of walking the Camino de Santiago was in jeopardy due to some extreme knee pain (patella femoral syndrome) that started several months before planned departure date. I was upset about possibility of having to cancel the trip. However, after the therapy and working the exercise program that I received I was good to go. Completed my trip, 300 km of walking through Portugal & Spain without issue. Still pain free. Thank you so much to Karen and crew."
