Sports

I treat a wide range of sports athletes, from gymnastics competitors and professional athletes to weekend ‘warriors’.  When sports injury occurs, it is vital  to receive the best treatment and management advice possible.

Treatments for  a wide range of sporting injuries, including:

  • Concussion
  • Muscle strains to the neck and back
  • Ligament sprains to the ankle and wrist
  • Hip, knee and leg injuries. For example: shin splints, patellar tendonitis, hamstring, groin and calf strains
  • Shoulder and elbow injuries. For example: rotator cuff tendinopathy, tennis and golfers elbow
  • Whiplash
  • Back spasms
  • Trauma

Consistent with treat the  whole person philosophy, I not only treat the actual muscle strain or ligament sprain but also diagnose and treat the overall body imbalance which may have resulted in the injury occurring in the first instance or may have occurred in response to the injury.  A tailored stretching and strengthening program is also suggested, enabling a return to your chosen sport as quickly as possible.

Testimonial ~~ Concussion

I had gone to Dr. Newlon for awhile for a chronic injury and knew how much she was helping me to heal, but I had not taken my kids until my son did not seem to be returning to normal after a concussion. After his first treatment with Dr. Newlon his eyes looked clearer and he felt better. Now all three of our boys, plus my husband, regularly seek treatment from her and will ask for an appointment if their bodies feel out of whack. They feel more like themselves after they see her.
