Sports and Running Injuries Treatment in Nashville, TN

 Steve Kravitz Physical Therapy

Steve has helped me manage an unstable and chronic autoimmune disease on a monthly basis for over three years. His PT approach to my condition is unbelievably comprehensive and I have benefitted from his vast repertoire of PT modalities (polarity, lymph drainage, cranio, and even PT on actual nerve restrictions) on literally every single joint in my body (except maybe my elbow). I firmly believe that his other-worldly craniosacral power helps my auto-immune system calm down (less flare ups) so I can remain productive and off disability. While there are countless positive benefits one receives from Steve’s care, I would highly recommend Steve’s craniosacral treatment for difficult to treat, chronic diseases.

I owe a lot to Steve, under his care I was able to successfully carry my twin pregnancy to a 38 week term. He also performs miracles on small patients. He worked on my newborn twins to eliminate birth restrictions and helped my daughter recover from torticollis (could not turn her head). It was amazing to watch how quickly my babies benefitted from his gentle touch.

Sports Injuries and Running Injuries:

●      Injuries -

The causes of running and other sports injuries typically varies between each patient. Running injuries are frequently overuse injury of the foot, lower leg, knee, and hip. Uneven running surfaces and poor shoe selection as well as weak quads and hips can contribute to common injury. In many cases, runner’s knee can be traced to the inability of the tissues surrounding the knee to recover in between runs. Overtraining, overuse, and improper or worn-out footwear can create pain in your heel, but the root of the problem lies in tight and weakened muscles in the foot. If your feet are weak, the heel takes on an excessive load and cannot handle the training you are trying to do.
