Pain and Injuries

From Setback to Comeback!

Chronic pain

Chronic pain from back and joints can be particularly debilitating in the world of pickleball, affecting players of all skill levels. When you begin the game with long-standing pain, your body compensates with other muscle groups to let you continue to play. Finding the true source of chronic pain, using therapy and modalities to mediate that pain can be the difference in return to play or return to the couch.

Acute injuries

The dynamic movements involved in Pickleball involve quick changes in direction, reaching for shots, and repetitive twisting motions, which can place significant strain on all joints, and specific muscles in the body. Typical areas of injury include the ankles, knees, calves and elbows. Aside from RICE, there are specific modalities and movement patterns that can promote recovery to return to the court.
