Sports Injury Q & A

What Are the Most Common Sports Injuries?

There are a number of sports injuries that are common to both athletes and nonathletes. ACL tears, fractures, groin pulls, strained hamstrings, tennis elbow, and shin splints are just a few of the many common sports injuries that sports medicine specialists treat today.

What Are the Nonsurgical Treatments For Sports Injuries?

There are many different nonsurgical treatments for sports injuries today. In most cases, the sports medicine doctor will try the least invasive option for healing first. If measures like rest, medication, and rehabilitation don’t work, surgical procedures may be the best option for getting patients back on their feet and back to their life again.

What Are the Surgical Options For Sports Injuries?

In some situations, the body will not be able to repair itself, and that is where the orthopedic sports medicine specialist steps in to help. There are a number of surgeries that can address specific sports medicine injuries today. For example, a patient who suffers from a severely torn and damaged ACL may need a surgical procedure that will reconstruct the ACL entirely. Injuries like fractures often require surgical intervention as well. The sports medicine doctor will consider each patient on a case by case basis to determine whether surgery is truly the best option for full healing.

How Long is Recovery From Sports Injuries?

Many people who suffer from sports injuries are anxious to get back to their usual level of physical activity, and they often ask how long they must wait to resume sports or workouts. It is important for patients to understand that the recovery period is an essential part of the healing. By following the return to activity schedule prescribed by the sports medicine doctor, patients can achieve the best recovery possible without risking future injury.
