Sports Injuries Q & A

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries refer to damage or an injury sustained while playing sports, high-intensity physical activity, training, or another form of exercise. These types of injuries may be debilitating and impact even normal level activities if not treated effectively.

The most common sports injuries impact the musculoskeletal system and are caused by:

  • Poor body mechanics

These factors may lead to a range of mild-to-severe musculoskeletal conditions. Before becoming a doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Gentry, DC, was an exercise physiologist and sports medicine specialist and is an expert in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of sports injuries.
