Passion about sports is rooted in the American psyche. Toddlers get their first taste of competition playing catch with mom, dad or siblings. As children mature, the desire to excel often takes the form of dedication to one or more athletic disciplines.

While athletic pursuits build character and could lead to a career, there is often a price to pay. Injuries are more common in sports, often leaving kids and adults with life-changing disabilities. With that said, the technological advances in treatment available to athletes are resulting in higher recovery rates.

If you or your child has suffered a sporting injury near Covington, GA, Hanowell Spine Clinic offers relief from painful symptoms. Begin your journey to wellness today by booking a consultation with one of our specialists.

Football Injuries

Football is a high contact sport that often involves the risk of players colliding. Serious injuries can occur to the neck and spine. Potentially, players could suffer paralysis in one or more areas. It is important to seek treatment for symptoms such as pain, numbness or tingling in the back or limbs.

Contact is not the only way to get injured while playing football. Due to the speed of activity, which includes twisting and turning, players may suffer a range of injuries. The ligaments, tendons and joints can tear or fracture. As a toughened athlete, you may attempt to work through the pain. However, failure to seek treatment could end your career.

Combat Sports

Needless to say, injuries are inherent in combat sports. You are trying to hit or submit your opponent, which can lead to joint and soft tissue damage for either participant. If you are in the fight game, keeping on top of injuries is recommended.

Many fighters end their career with an injury that makes continued competition impossible. Do not let painful or debilitating symptoms dictate how you enjoy retirement. Speak to Hanowell Spine Clinic about diagnosis and treatment in Georgia.

Limb Strains & Pains

If you get through an athletic career without suffering a limb sprain or pain, you are part of a very small minority. Do not allow symptoms to worsen or exacerbate an injury by attempting to continue sporting activity. Reach out to Hanowell Spine Clinic for an appointment today.

Patient Reviews

Deborah C.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Sandra C.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
