Lakeville chiropractor Dr. Couillard has been in treating patients for over 16 years. In that time, he's worked with thousands of athletes of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds.
In reality, anyone can find themselves dealing with an acute injury if they participate in physical activity, including sports and exercise, and without proper and prompt treatment, these issues can turn into chronic problems that may keep a person sidelined and out of the game they love.
But from elite level competitors to amateur players, Dr. Couillard knows that he can help by providing natural, whole body care that gets to the root of the issue, instead of just masking the pain.
Common Sports Injuries Seen By Our St. Paul Chiropractor
Sports injuries vary a lot in terms of type and severity. Here are a few of the most common ones seen by our St. Paul chiropractor:
- Shoulder pain and arm pain, often caused by a muscle strain or tendon injury (e.g., golfer's elbow)
- Knee pain, often caused by ligament damage or overuse (e.g., runner's knee)
- Back pain, often caused by a disc herniation, muscle strain, or joint subluxation.
- Neck pain, often caused by whiplash.
- Foot and ankle pain, often caused by plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and stress fractures.
