Sports Injuries

Message From Dr. Jacqualynn Gordon & Dr. Joanna Rochelle, Owners & Founders Of Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness

It is tempting to dismiss a sports injury and attempt to push through the discomfort, but it is critical to get medical attention.

Or it’s easy to become disappointed and feel “stuck,” wondering if you’ll ever be able to engage in sports or stay active as you used to…

If you’re going through this, you’re not alone; we go through it all the time. In reality, whether it’s summer or winter, we visit patients at Onyx’s physiotherapy clinic.

When physicians and medical experts encourage individuals to “rest” after an accident, we believe it’s ludicrous. We feel that this is causing additional injury and increasing your chances of future injuries. This is due to the fact that rest causes our muscles to weaken and atrophy! That is why so many individuals suffering from sports injuries wonder:

“It’s Been Months – Why Am I STILL Suffering From An Injury That Prevents Me From Being Active And Playing My Favorite Sport?”

Many people mistakenly assume that a few days of rest would heal their sports injury and allow them to resume their regular workout program. However, when they try to continue exercising, they frequently find themselves in far greater agony than before. When the individual rests, there is usually little to no discomfort; nevertheless, when they resume exercising, the pain returns and does not appear to lessen no matter how long they rest.

Does It Describe You?

In our clinic, we frequently meet people who go to the doctor and are told to relax and “try these pain medicines” to “see how it works.” Then, four weeks later, because the ailment hasn’t improved, they return to the same doctor and are given MORE rest and ANOTHER prescription for even stronger drugs.

Rest isn’t always the greatest treatment when it comes to sports injuries. So, if you’ve ever been irritated after chatting with many persons and receiving contradictory information, know that you’re not alone. Because they might have similar symptoms, it’s easy to confuse a back injury with a hip condition.

Sports injuries are frequently misdiagnosed since the pain is coming from somewhere other than the place that needs to be addressed. Resting over an extended period of time can lead other portions of the body to become weak and vulnerable to harm.

Unfortunately, the uncertainty surrounding “resting” sometimes leads to even greater procrastination and avoidance of decisions that may aid in the healing of an injury and return to normal exercise. Worse, many people simply accept that they are no longer active, as if it is normal or unavoidable.

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness In Encinitas.

- Adam H.

Onyx Physical Therapy and Wellness is a first-rate PT facility. I came to them after I hurt my shoulder doing overhead press and it lingered for 5 months. I finally reached out to Jacqualynn from Onyx PT and she was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly knowledgeable and adept at diagnosing my injury and the best way to rehab my shoulder. Their technology platform, where they sent me videos of the exercises and stretches I should be performing, were very helpful and spot-on. After about 3-4 weeks, I felt a 90% improvement in my shoulder. Onyx PT uses a variety of modalities and all of them helped me recover from my injury. Moreover, their office is modern and beautiful and in the heart of downtown Encinitas. I cannot recommend Onyx Physical Therapy and Wellness enough…they are the absolute best!!
