sports injury jacksonville nc

The physical therapists of Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy in South Jacksonville, North Carolina have a passion for sports and helping people return to action after suffering injury. Regardless of the sport you play or your skill level, injuries are a part of the game. If you do experience a sports injury, Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy can develop a personalized treatment plan to help you recover.

Common sports injuries we treat


  • Concussion — Head injuries can be very serious and should not be taken lightly. Fortunately, physical therapy can help lessen the dizziness and vertigo symptoms that often accompany a concussion. 
  • Repetitive motion injuries Injuries such as shin splints and tendonitis often arise as a result of overuse. Physical therapy treatments are focused on reducing pain and inflammation in the affected area. Techniques such as TENS unit stimulation coupled with ice help ease the symptoms of repetitive motion injuries. 
  • Muscle strains and sprains — These types of injuries often arise as a result of a lack of stability or strength in the joint or muscle area. Manual therapies to increase range of motion and exercises to increase strength and stability can help the patient recover more quickly and reduce future injury risk.


When to seek immediate treatment

The majority of sports injuries can be treated yourself with the RICE protocol of rest, ice, compression and elevation. However, there are some symptoms to watch out for that if experienced, medical treatment should be sought immediately including:

  • The inability to bear any weight on the injured area
  • Numbness or tingling in the injured body part
  • Severe pain that does not subside or get better
  • Muscle weakness in the area

It is important to remember that you should not try and tough an injury out. This can exacerbate the existing injury or cause the body to compensate in ways that may increase your risk of further injury.
