It’s College Football Season Atlanta, GA

The waiting and suspense are over! College football season is in full swing as of August 25, 2018. It will run all the way through until December 8, 2018 when we all will begin the waiting and suspense for it to roll around again next year.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are proud to provide you with urgent orthopedic care in Atlanta if you suffer from a sports-related accident or trauma. During this season of football, sports injuries are common and never planned for or expected. In these situations, prompt and specialized care is required. There should be no waiting and suspense when it comes to having a football injury.

According to the NCAA, there were 8.1 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures (during games and practices combined). They also reported that football players are nearly seven times more likely to be injured during a game than in practice. The NCAA also reports that ligament sprains are the most common injury reported.

While Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is equipped to treat you with our urgent orthopedic care, we are passionate about ways to prevent injury as well. The NCAA gives many tips on how to prevent injuries on the football field. Many of the tips include proper protective gear, hydration, preseason physical exams and “speak with a sports medicine professional or athletic trainer if you have any concerns about football injuries or football injury prevention strategies.”

If you have an emergency orthopedic concern, please contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians immediately.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
