The most common types of sports injuries to occur include muscle sprains and strains, tears of the ligaments that hold joints together, tears of the tendon that support joints and allow them to move, dislocated joints, and fractured bones, including vertebrae. Fortunately, Dr. Joey Wilcoxon specializes in treating sports injuries and can help you get back to your peak performance.
The first rule of thumb for a sports injury is to never “play through the pain.” If you have a pain from a particular movement or activity you should always stop what you’re doing and seek medical treatment. Doctors of chiropractic, such as Dr. Joey Wilcoxon, have specific training in evaluating and treating the ailments of athletes. Once the injury has been diagnosed, Dr. Joey Wilcoxon will utilize all available therapeutic methods as well as video analysis to help get you back in the game.
