We treat a wide range of injuries sustained in every day tasks, sports, the workplace and motor vehicle accidents. More information about athletic injuries, workplace injuries, whiplash and sprains and strains can be found by clicking on the applicable links below.
Athletic injuries include sports related sprains and strains, and overuse injuries caused by repetitive motions. These include:
Workplace injuries include injuries, and chronic conditions caused by repetitive motions or poor posture. Examples of common workplace injuries include:
Motor Vehicle Injuries
The most common motor vehicle injury we treat is whiplash. Whiplash is a non-medical term describing a range of injuries to the neck caused by the head suddenly snapping forward and back again (as often occurs when a vehicle has been hit from behind). Whiplash may also occur as the result of a cycling or equestrian accident, or high fall. Symptoms usually include pain and aching to the neck and back, and headaches. Patients suffering from whiplash may also experience referred pain in the shoulders, and sensory disturbances (such as pins and needles) in the arms and legs.
Sprains and Strains
A strain occurs when muscle fibers or tendons (which connect muscle to bone) are torn or overstretched. Strains are a common type of sports related injury, but they can occur in the course of every day activities as well.
Sprains occur when a ligament is torn or stretched abnormally. Ligaments are tough bands of connective tissue that hold bones together at joints. Torn or loose ligaments can lead to long-term joint instability and pain.
Common types of sprains and strains we treat include:
