Tennis Injury Treatment & Prevention

We’re Passionate About Tennis

Treating or preventing tennis injuries requires a thorough understanding of the demands of the sport.

Injuries out on the tennis court could be caused by a number of different factors. It’s important to consider the relationship between a player’s mobility and strength as well as their training or match play schedule. Advances in racket and string technology may also contribute to injury, especially in the wrist, elbow and shoulder.

Identifying or controlling some of these risk factors is vital for players of all ages and skill levels. We can help them perform at an optimum level, ensuring they have a long and enjoyable tennis career.

What We do For Tennis Players

Part of our assessment when working with tennis players is the RacquetFit physical screen. It’s a series of mobility tests that were developed specifically for tennis players. It gives us a better insight into how an athlete’s body moves and what physical limitations may be affecting their performance or contributing to injury.

We offer hands-on manual therapy, chiropractic treatment, dry needling & shockwave therapy for muscle or joint injuries in all regions of the body.

We can develop injury rehabilitation, mobility or injury prevention programs for players based on their specific needs & goals.

The serve is the most physically demanding stroke in tennis. We can perform a video analysis of the serve to look for certain characteristics which might be due to your physical limitations. These abnormal serve characteristics could be reducing your serve speed or they could potentially be a risk factor for injury.
