With repetitive motions and ballistic movements, playing tennis can cause a great deal of stress and strain on the body. As result, tennis injuries are incredibly common.
Movements such as continuous acceleration and deceleration, twisting motions, overhead serves, and groundstrokes can cause injuries to the knees, back, ankles, elbows, and shoulders.
At Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic, our team of chiropractors have years of experience working with joint and muscle problems. Using our knowledge of the sport and the body, we can help treat tennis injuries, as well as preventing them in the first place.
Through the effective application of chiropractic manipulation, our skilled and experienced chiropractors will help restore the balance of your body and relieve any pain. By aligning the bones perfectly, we can help the muscles and nerves in the back to stay in perfect condition. This allows the body to function at the optimum level, reducing the risk of injury on the court.View our company video here
We can offer help for the following tennis injuries:
Tennis elbow is an injury caused by repetitive and forceful movements at the wrist, especially when hitting backhand shots. The condition causes a range of symptoms, including pain on the outer elbow, wrist weakness, tenderness, difficulty extending the forearm fully, and pain when lifting, gripping, or carrying objects.
Rotator Cuff Pain
The rotator cuff is the group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint, keeping the upper arm bone secure in the shoulder socket. Rotator cuff injuries are common, causing a dull ache in the shoulder and weakness in the arm, and may lead to a frozen shoulder if not treated.
Lower Back Pain
Lower back injuries, such as muscle strains and disc herniation are common in people who regularly play tennis. They can be caused by awkward movements, twisting motions, and bending down to pick the ball up.
Shoulder imbalances are common tennis injuries. This condition is often caused when the muscles on the front of the shoulder and chest become stronger and shorter than the muscles at the back of the shoulder, as a result of unbalanced training regimes.
