Sports Related Injuries

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors for AthletesExercising is good for you for many different reasons. It boosts confidence, endorphins improve your mood, and it keeps the body fit and trim. However, millions of people injure themselves playing sports and through recreational exercising each year. Accidents, improper gear, not warming up, and poor training practices are the leading causes of sports related injuries. In order to get back to peek performance or to simply enjoy the sports related activity, a person needs to make sure that s/he heals the injury properly to ensure that a full recovery is made before participating again. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer treatment for a full range of sports injuries for athletes of all levels. We are dedicated to give all of our patients a valued, individualized treatment plan that is tailored to help them meet their specific goals.

The most common sports related injuries are:

• Sprains and strains
• Pulled, swollen muscles
• Dislocations
• Knee injuries
• Achilles tendon injuries
• Fractures
• Shin splints
• Rotator cuff injuries

It is important for any athlete to seek treatment immediately once an injury has occurred. Before you think of simply using the at home RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method and starting again, having your injury assessed by a licensed and certified physician is essential. Many times fractures feel "better" the next day, but exercising could cause more harm and damage.

The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are committed to using the most minimally invasive methods to help patients recover and fully heal from a sports related injury. Our lower patient-to-provider ratio enables us to take the time we need to accurately diagnose the injury and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, if you have suffered a sports related injury you will find the relief you need at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Call us today to schedule a consultation with one of our Interventional Sports Physicians. We look forward to helping you recover.
