Sports Injury Chronic Pain

Sports Injury Chronic Pain

Sports-related injuries do not discriminate based on age or ability. Athletes, from professionals to weekend warriors are vulnerable to chronic pain as the result of injuries. Persistent pain can stall progress with rehab/physical therapy and keep individuals from returning to their activity, in some cases disabling them from other daily activities.

Joint Denervation Surgery | Neuropax Clinic is the St. Louis Leader for Carpal Tunnel, Headache Surgery, Nerve Compression, thoracic outlet syndrome and Chronic Joint Pain.

If you continue to experience persistent chronic pain after a sports injury, peripheral nerve surgery may relieve pain and help you return to your sport and other normal activities that may have been affected.

At Neuropax Clinics, we treat athletes for a variety of chronic pain conditions related to peripheral nerve damage. While we are not focused on the primary treatment of sports related injuries, we can offer you hope for relief of pain that has not responded to traditional treatments.
