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.

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.

Keep Your Hips Healthy

Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.

The Top Four Sports Injuries

Weekend warriors, professional athletes and kids from elementary to high school all have something in common. They are at risk for certain sports-related injuries. Being active is important to your overall well-being. Not only does it keep you in shape, it also helps keep your brain functioning well. As exciting and energizing as these activities can be, there can be a cost in the form of an injury. Different activities lend themselves to certain predictable injuries.
