If you ever played a sport competitively, you probably have some degree of sports-injury related pain. There+’s no embarassment to it, it’s just the way of life. If you spend your youth running into people, you will feel it as you age. 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.
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.
Common Nerve Related Conditions
- Blunt or repetitive injury to the neck shoulder interface (brachial plexus)
- (i.e. shoulder stinger, throwing athletes, cycling accidents)
