Sports injury treatment in Chicago, IL, Evergreen Park, IL, and Munster, IN


Injuries are a part of any sports season and are typically placed into two categories: traumatic or overuse.

Traumatic injuries are caused by a specific incident, such as:

  • Sprains (i.e., ankle or ACL)
  • Strains, including pulled muscles
  • Concussions (i.e., football collisions, soccer ball heading, falls, etc.)

In contrast, overuse injuries are caused by repetitive movements and/or poor technique performed over time. Some examples of overuse injuries include:

  • Tendinitis (i.e., shin splints, jumper’s knee)
  • Repetitive stress with poor technique (i.e., stress fractures, throwing injuries)

Sprains are extremely common in sports. Ligaments connect your bone to bone. When a ligament is stretched beyond its limits, a sprain can occur. Once the ligament is stretched, it is looser and more susceptible to being sprained again in the future.

Strains, or pulled muscles, are similar to sprains but occur in muscles and tendons, not ligaments. Tendons connect your muscles to your bones. When a tendon is stretched beyond its limit, a strain can occur. Once the tendon is injured, it must be resolved fully, or it can lead to a chronic overuse condition.

We will perform an injury screening to identify any underlying condition that can lead to future injuries. If/when we identify limitations and weaknesses, we will address them head-on to resolve them thoroughly.

As you progress through rehabilitation, our focus will shift to increasing the intensity and complexity of your program. Our team will incorporate sports-specific training to prepare your body for the demands of a competitive sports season. We will work to ensure you are ready for the start of your season.
