Sports Medicine Q & A

What Types of Sports Injuries Does a Sports Medicine Doctor Treat?

A sports medicine doctor specializes in treating nearly any condition that is associated with sports or physical activity injury. Sports medicine doctors frequently handle bone fractures, knee injuries, tendon and ligament tears, neck injuries, spinal injuries, and many other kinds of injuries. In some cases, the treatment will be a nonsurgical one, but in other situations, orthopaedic surgery will be needed to allow for proper healing.

Who Can See a Sports Medicine Doctor?

While many people believe that sports medicine doctors only treat professional athletes, it is actually a misconception. A sports medicine specialist treats many different people, including amateur athletes and people who aren’t very athletic at all. For example, a person can sustain a serious injury like a meniscus tear when they try to lift something much heavier than they are accustomed to. A sports medicine doctor treats certain injury types rather than certain types of people, so anyone is welcome to seek treatment from a sports medicine specialist today.

What Are the Indicators of Common Sports Injuries?

The indicators of a sports injury will vary considerably based on the specific injury. It is common to see swelling and redness in the injured area, and this is often accompanied by either a dull pain or an intermittent sharp pain. Some sports injuries are discovered when a person has muscle soreness that doesn’t go away, even after rest. In some cases, a sports injury will be noticed by the clearly visible muscle spasms that may occur just beneath the skin. If an injury doesn’t get better with a few days of rest, it is time to seek help, especially if the pain is persistent. Trying to walk on an injury, or trying to ignore the injury, will often result in it worsening.
