I am seeing more and more Pickleball injuries in the clinic. Some of the injuries are similar to other raquet-related sports. Others are distinctly different.
I think the reason I am seeing more Pickleball injuries in the clinic is due to:
An older population playing the sport
Different dynamics than other racquet sports
Some of the more common injuries are:
Shoulder pain and rotator cuff
Low back pain, disc problems, strains and sprains
To do the proper assessment of these types of injuries, what I do for the athlete is:
History of the injury and athlete's prior health
Examination including range of motion, orthopedic and neurologic tests
X-rays in the clinic if necessary
Then treatment begins using:
Adjustments to re-align the area
Mobilization to help restore function
Home ice, heat and exercise
K-tape for added stability
