Common sports injuries treated by chiropractors include muscle strains and sprains, flawed biomechanics, and inflammation-causing damage to joint ligaments. Engaging in sports activities regularly inevitably affects one or more of the body's major joints--knees, shoulders, elbows, hips, and ankles. Principles of sports medicine incorporated into sports injury treatment programs by a sports injury specialist in Sugar Land involve specific precepts of exercise physiology, biomechanics, sports science, orthopedics, and sport-specific movements.

Common Sports Injuries

Back Strain/Sprain/Overuse

Repetitive impact activities (running/jogging, playing basketball, weight training) that place extreme stress on the spine and back muscles often cause lower back pain and stiffness. Poor core strength and improper muscle firing can put you at a higher risk of creating back pain or injury.

Elbow Pain/Golfer's Elbow

Repetitive motions, like swinging a golf club or tennis racket and overusing the elbow may cause tendonitis in your elbow. Symptoms include tenderness and pain on the inside or outside of your elbow and/or radiating pain into your lower and upper arm. Pain may worsen when you lift something, grip objects, or flex your wrist.

Knee Pain

Athletes seeking sports injury treatment at Hogan Spine & Rehab for knee pain are frequently seen due to ligament sprains, tendon strains, meniscal, tears, or joint inflammation. Many of these conditions may present with knee swelling, joint clicking or catching, weakness, or severe knee pain.

Ankle Pain

Twisting or landing incorrectly on an ankle may sprain or severely stretch ankle ligaments. Defined by the type of ankle component damaged--tendons, ligaments, or bones--ankle injuries can be fractures, sprains (ranging from tiny tears or a complete rupture in ligaments), or strains. Ankle strains are injuries to the tendons and muscles that have been stretched or pulled too far.


Victims of auto accidents are not the only ones who can suffer whiplash. Athletes playing contact sports like soccer or football may receive a sudden, powerful body hit that forcefully jerks their head forward and then rapidly backward. Whiplash is a serious neck injury involving the cervical muscles, intervertebral joints, ligaments, and discs comprising the neck and upper back.

Sports Injury Treatment Provided by Hogan Spine & Rehab

Adjustments and Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal adjustments are a hands-on technique used to correct improper movement of the spinal motion segments. The main purpose of an adjustment is to induce joint motion where it is lacking. Adjustments and spinal decompression therapy can help alleviate pain, increase the range of motion, and reduce inflammation.

Therapeutic Exercises/Rehab/Prehab

Individualized rehab exercises and movements to help restore optimal function of the affected area/region, whether it is mobility, stability, strength, endurance, or a combination.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Whether it’s manual therapy, Instrument-assisted, or even cupping soft tissue work can help promote the healing and regeneration process through the exchange of blood and allow the removal of toxins and dead cells.

MLS Laser Therapy

By combining two different wavelengths to improve blood circulation around damaged areas, stimulate tissue healing, and repair injured soft tissue cells, MLS laser therapy is an effective, non-invasive method of relieving pain and swelling due to tendinitis, bursitis, strains/sprains, and degenerative joint conditions.
