Common Sports Injuries We Treat

Sports injuries can manifest as bruising, inflammation, loss of range of motion, pain, swelling, and more. At our sports injury clinic in Torrance, we specialize in treating a wide range of common injuries, including:

An athlete suffers from joint pain after getting involved into a sports accident.
  • ACL Tear: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a crucial ligament in the knee that can tear during sports activities involving sudden stops, changes in direction, or direct impact on the knee. 
  • Ankle Sprain: Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments that connect the bones of the ankle joint are stretched or torn due to a sudden twist or impact. 
  • Hamstring Strain: The hamstring muscles, located in the back of the thigh, can strain or tear due to overstretching or sudden movements. 
  • Shoulder Injuries: Shoulder injuries can range from sprains and strains to more serious conditions such as rotator cuff tears or dislocations. 
  • Plantar Fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. 
  • Tendonitis: Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon, which is the tissue that connects muscles to bones. 
  • Tennis Elbow: Also known as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain and tenderness on the outer part of the elbow.
  • Golf Elbow: Also known as medial epicondylitis, golf elbow is a condition that causes pain and tenderness on the inner part of the elbow. 
  • Ankle/Knee Injuries: These can include various injuries to the ankle and knee, such as ligament sprains, meniscus tears, and cartilage injuries.
  • Groin Pull: A groin pull, also known as a groin strain, is an injury to the muscles of the inner thigh. It can occur during activities that involve sudden changes in direction or stretching of the groin muscles. 
  • Back Injuries: Back injuries can range from muscle strains and sprains to more serious conditions such as herniated discs or fractures. 

Our sports injury doctor is well-equipped to handle various injuries, from back pain to tendonitis, to heal your injuries and get you back to your favorite sports as quickly as possible.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach for Sports Injuries at Zaker Chiropractic Pain & Wellness

Our integrated sports rehabilitation team will run a series of tests and other diagnostics to determine which treatments make sense for you. From physical rehabilitation or cryotherapy, we have everything you need to heal quicker, restore mobility, and live injury-free.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can be used on the vertebrae in the back and the extremity joints. An injury of the back or joints can cause misalignments, which can lead to further injury due to improper joint movement. By pushing the joints back into their proper positions, our chiropractor is helping to reduce your pain, lower inflammation, and restore proper joint function.

It can take several months to heal from a ligament, tendon, or muscle injury. However, there is a new treatment option to help relieve pain and speed up the rate of healing. Cryotherapy, which means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes.


To help get you back on the field faster, we may recommend physiotherapy, which involves performing targeted exercises to restore strength, mobility, and flexibility. It also helps keep you active while you are in recovery.

Strength Training / Personal Training

Our one-on-one strengthening sessions will be tailored toward your diagnosed injury and specific needs. One of our experienced personal trainers will develop a comprehensive, personal workout program that is right for you. Our trainers work directly with sports injury doctors in the area to help improve muscle imbalances and postural imperfections.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps relax the muscles while improving flexibility and range of motion. It also helps lower feelings of stress and anxiety while improving circulation. When it is combined with other therapies and techniques, individuals typically experience a dramatic reduction in pain and improved recovery times.

Advantages of Non-Invasive Sports Injury Treatments

Non-surgical sports injury treatments aim to heal the body without the need for surgery or invasive procedures. Non-surgical sports injury treatments offer several benefits, including:

  • Faster Recovery: Non-surgical treatments often have shorter recovery times compared to surgical options. These treatments focus on addressing the root cause of the injury, allowing for quicker healing. By using non-surgical approaches, patients can return to their activities faster.
  • Lower Risk of Complications: Surgical procedures inherently carry risks such as infection, scarring, and anesthesia complications. Non-surgical treatments minimize these risks, making them a safer option for many patients. They involve fewer invasive procedures, which reduces the likelihood of complications.

  • Preserves Natural Anatomy and Function: Non-surgical treatments aim to preserve the natural anatomy and function of the affected area. Surgical interventions may involve the removal or alteration of tissues, potentially affecting long-term function. By preserving the natural anatomy and function, patients can avoid the risk of long-term complications.
  • Minimally Invasive: Many non-surgical treatments are minimally invasive, involving smaller incisions or no incisions at all. This can result in less pain, reduced scarring, and shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgery. Minimally invasive procedures also decrease the risk of complications.
  • Cost-Effective: Non-surgical treatments are generally more cost-effective compared to surgical options. Surgical procedures can be expensive due to hospitalization, anesthesia, and post-operative care costs. Non-surgical treatments can save patients money while providing the same level of care.
  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Non-surgical treatments can be tailored to each individual's specific needs and condition. Personalized treatment plans can optimize outcomes and provide more targeted care. This approach ensures that patients receive the most appropriate treatment for their injury.
