When you play sports or engage in intense physical activity, there is always a risk of getting injured. If that happens, it may be detrimental to your training and practice because you’ll likely need some down time to recover. Though the injury might be bad, it could get worse if it is not allowed to heal properly.
While a primary care doctor can help repair many of the injuries that result from playing sports, they might not offer the same level of specialty in management and healing. If your injury heals incorrectly, it can affect your performance or even your ability to engage in athletic activity for the rest of your life.
If your training, practice, and activity are important to you, it is best to see a sports medicine specialist for a sports injury.
Our Sports Injury Care team includes certified sports medicine physicians, exercise physiologists, and athletic trainers. They will all work together to make sure your injury heals the way it should so you can get back to sports as soon as possible.
We focus on treating the following injuries as well as many others:
- Joint pain from arthritis
- Joint swelling
- Ligament tears
- Back pain
- Groin pain
- Tendon problems (e.g. rotator cuff, Achilles, tennis elbow)
- Soft tissue injuries such as strains or sprains
The Sports Medicine Specialty Group uses the latest in sports medicine technology to accurately diagnose and treat sports related injuries. Our in-office x-ray and ultrasound allow us to quickly pinpoint the source of your injury or “mystery” pain. We use casting, splinting, bracing, injections, exercises, and other tools to aid in the management and treatment of your problem.
If you have had a recent injury, you may need immediate treatment to make sure that the problem does not get worse. We recommend you refrain from any physical activity until you have a diagnosis from a certified sports medicine physician.
