Pickleball injuries

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:

  1. An older population playing the sport

  2. Different dynamics than other racquet sports

Some of the more common injuries are:

  • Ankle sprains

  • Muscles Strains

  • Tendonitis

  • 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:

  1. History of the injury and athlete's prior health

  2. Examination including range of motion, orthopedic and neurologic tests

  3. 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
