Sports Injury

Get back to doing what you love. Evolve Physical Therapy has the expertise and training to help you recover from your sports injury.




We Are Sports Injury Specialists

What is our approach?

The injuries that occur with individual and team competition can range from minor to catastrophic. Sports injury treatment can range from education to avoid over-training, bio-mechanical analysis to change technique (e.g., high-speed video analysis for running), or more traditional physical therapy to address pain and swelling reduction. This also helps with improving joint mobility, muscular flexibility, strength, and dynamic stability. Our evaluation and treatment philosophy is comprehensive where we view the individual as a whole system.

Spine Injury

Joint Dislocation

Inflamed Joints

Shoulder Injury

Sports Injuries We Treat

We treat an array of sports injuries at Evolve and here are some of the most common sports injuries:


Tendinitis can occur all over the body. It is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon. The symptoms of tendinitis are pain and tenderness around the affected joint.

Sprains, Strains & Tears

Sprains and strains usually occur when someone twists, falls or hits something in a way that forces the body out of its normal position. A sprain is a stretch or tear in a ligament, while a strain is also a stretch or tear, but involves a muscle or tendon.

Medial Tibial Stress (Shin Splints)

Shin splints are a very common injury with athletes and runners. Shin splints are caused from overuse or intensified activity. It can occur in one or both legs and the symptoms are tenderness, sharp pains and soreness along your shin bones.

Overuse Injury

Overuse injuries are a type of injury that is caused by repetitive activities or trauma. Common overuse injuries are tendinitis or stress fractures.

Patellofemoral Syndrome (Runner's Knee)

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner’s Knee or Jumper’s Knee) is pain at the front and around your kneecap. It is a common running and jumping injury. Patellofemoral pain symptoms occur during activity (e.g., running, squatting, going up/down stairs).

Overhead Athlete Injury

Overhead athletes (swimmer, baseball, volleyball, javelin, etc.) are more susceptible to injuries associated with rapid and repeated shoulder movements and rotations. Some of these injuries include: scapula syndrome, labral tears, nerve-related pathology, tendon injuries, fractures and dislocations.

Joint Dislocations

A joint dislocation occurs when there is a separation in the joint from its normal position. This is usually a painful injury that temporarily immobilizes the affected area. Dislocations mostly happen from falls and high impact forces.

Compartment Syndrome

The muscles of your leg are divided into four compartments, each made of connective tissue. Compartment Syndrome is when those muscles swell up during exercise, compromising circulation and prohibiting muscular function while causing intense pain in the lower leg. 

Iliotibial Band Injury (IT Band)

Iliotibial Band syndrome occurs when the IT band becomes inflamed and tight. Is it a common injury with runners because of the constant rubbing of the IT band against the knee. Common symptoms of IT band injuries are knee swelling, stiffness, knee and sometimes hip pain.

Fractures & Stress Fractures

While fractures are clean breaks, a stress fracture is a small crack or severe bruising of a bone. Stress fractures occur when your muscles become tired and fatigued and are unable to absorb the shock from activity. Pain is the most common symptom of a fracture, along with tenderness and swelling.

Spinal Injury

A spinal injury is damage to any part of the spine or nerves of the spine. There are many different types of spinal injuries and those injuries vary in symptoms. Visit our Spine Injury page to find out more!
