Sports Medicine

As an athlete, few things are more discouraging than sustaining an injury. Here at Advanced Orthopedics and Joint Preservation, our team understands this, which is why we are committed to providing patients with high-quality sports medicine. Working with our orthopedists will allow you to get back to your team at full strength. If you’ve recently become injured due to a sporting event, please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our team.

Common Sports Injuries

Even if you’re someone who takes part in relatively contactless sports, it’s essential to remember that injuries can still happen at any time. Understanding this fact will allow you to seek treatment right away, even if you’re only dealing with minor pain. The faster treatment is received, the sooner you can return to action. Some of the most common sports injuries our team can help treat include but are not limited to:

  • Ankle sprains.
  • Stress fractures.
  • Bone breaks.
  • Shin splints.
  • Ligamentous problems. 
  • Muscle strains or tears.
  • Dislocations.
  • Overuse injuries.

Preventative Care

When it comes to sports medicine, the best treatment is to prevent an injury from ever occurring. Through the use of preventative care, we can allow this to take place. Our team will inform you what is necessary to help retain your strength and keep your body injury-free, so you can stay with your team and off the injured list.

Immobilization

Sometimes, athletes feel as if they can play through an injury. Even if they’re able to do so, it will significantly affect their athletic output. For specific injuries, complete immobilization of the affected body part is necessary for treatment. When this is the case, our team has several options to help with this, including the below:

  • Casting.
  • Bracing.
  • Splinting.
  • Slings.

Additional Sports Medicine Options

Here at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation, we take pride in the sports medicine options we can provide our patients. Our team will perform a full assessment of the issue in questions to determine which treatment route will be most beneficial. After your condition has been evaluated, see below for some of the options that may be suggested:

  • Creating or prescribing custom orthotics.
  • Massage therapy.
  • Compression of the injured area.
  • Steroid injections.
  • Referrals to trusted physical therapists.
  • Reconstructive surgical procedures.
