Common Sports Injuries we Treat
You don’t have to be an ‘athlete’ to receive great care from us; We treat everyone that suffers from pain and dysfunction. Our approach to common sports injuries may be a little different than some. Our focus is getting you out of pain quickly, while working to strengthen problem areas and providing you the tools you need to move forward in life with confidence.
- Tension Headaches
- Cervicogenic Headaches
- Migraine Headaches
Tension headaches can be debilitating and some experience these type of headaches everyday. We work to understand the types of headache you’re experiencing and put a plan in place.
- Acute torticollis/Wry neck/Stiff neck
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)

The neck is susceptible to injury because of its extensive range of motion. It is, as a result, less stable than many other parts of the body.

Common Sports Injuries Testimonial
“After a hard mountain bike crash 13 years ago, I dealt with chronic shoulder pain and limited mobility in my left shoulder. I met with several doctors and physical therapists, but nothing helped long term. I decided to just deal with the pain, which ranged from unnoticeable to unbearable. The limited mobility kept me from doing some daily activities, anything overhead, and lifting weights. There was also a noticeable decrease in strength. Last year I decided to get back into lifting and see how my shoulder handled it. I really wanted to try Olympic lifting (snatch and clean/jerk), but I couldn’t even get a broom stick into the proper position.
I met with Dr. Centofonti and after evaluating me, he used a combination of Active Release (which was amazing for instant relief) and corrective exercises to get my shoulder feeling better. Over just a few weeks of seeing him, I was able to PR in the overhead press, an exercise that used to cause a great deal of pain, as well as start focusing on the Olympic lift movements.
Fast forward to today, I have nearly all my range of motion back in my shoulder, zero pain, and the strength is slowly working its way up. I’m grateful for the work he has done, and would recommend him to anyone dealing with pain.”
