Dr. Mountain has an extensive knowledge base in treating sports injuries. He has treated a variety of professional athletes, amateur athletes, weekend warriors, and junior athletes.

Sometimes people are surprised that the chiropractic approach is successful in treating sports injuries. Typically, injured athletes go to their medical doctor for help and treatment normally consists of rest and medication. What is not addressed is why the injury occurred. If the injury is NOT due to a traumatic episode such as a high impact collision, it is most likely a breakdown of function related to improper muscle balance leading to poor joint stabilization. Examples are:

  • Repetitive hamstring pulls
  • Repetitive groin pulls
  • Chronic knee pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Impingement syndromes
  • Tennis elbow
  • Chronic calf and foot pain
  • Wrist injuries
