The benefits of an athletic lifestyle are boundless.  Regular exercise is proven to boost mood and energy; combat chronic disease including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and certain types of cancer; promote better sleep habits; maintain a healthy weight and can even lead to more fulfilling relationships with family and friends.  But, as the saying goes, nothing and no one is perfect and sports injuries are one of the most common causes of doctor’s visits among Americans young and old.  So, whether you’re a weekend warrior or a serious competitor – or fall somewhere in between – injury prevention should rank high on your list of priorities.

Sports Conditioning – functional training designed to prepare an athlete for the demands of a specific sport – and rehabilitation are the two pillars of injury prevention and performance enhancement. MaxLife patients have access to cutting-edge technology to ensure that no matter what level of athleticism they aspire to, they are the best – and healthiest – they can be.

At MaxLife, we are well-versed in the most common injuries associated with a host of sporting events and will help you recover from a past injury or build up strength in the areas that matter most.

​Some of the most frequent conditions treated at MaxLife include:

  • Rotator Cuff Injuries

Comprised of the four muscles and their tendons that stabilize the shoulder, the rotator cuff can get caught between the bones in the shoulder and upper arm and cause bursitis, tendonitis and eventually, a painful tear.

  • ACL Injuries

Every year, an estimated 150,000 Americans suffer an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in their knee, making it one of the most common sports-related injuries. Nearly 80 percent of all ACL injuries are “non-contact” and although any athlete is susceptible to it, studies have shown a greater tendency in women to suffer injuries to the ACL.

  • Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel.  Often the result of a running injury, Achilles tendonitis requires dedicated at-home and doctor-supervised care to heal or to avoid aggravating the injury.

It doesn’t matter what field a patient is happiest on, there are a number of movements typical of even those sports that seem the most forgiving.  Swimming, running, basketball, soccer, and even yoga, include movements which done incorrectly and repetitively will wreak havoc on any body and sideline even the most capable athlete.  Swimmers and baseball pitchers are plagued with shoulder trouble, runners often complain of knee, foot and hip pain, and yogis who unknowingly perform poses incorrectly wind up with an array of complaints.

MaxLife’s recognized sports conditioning and rehabilitation programs focus on developing body awareness and improving flexibility, strength, balance and agility, to protect patient’s bodies and their game.
