SPORTS INJURIES & TREATMENTS

Some of the most common sports injuries that are frequently treated by Sports & Orthopedic Center include:

Your orthopaedic surgeon is trained to diagnose and treat any injury, deformity, or disease that can cause pain and discomfort to your knees. The following are the most common type of injuries:

    • Concussions

Concussions are caused by severe head trauma where the brain moves violently within the skull so that brain cells all fire at once, much like a seizure.

    • Frequent Painful Muscle Cramps

Muscle Cramps are a sudden tight, intense pain caused by a muscle locked in spasm. Muscle cramps are also recognized as an involuntary and forcibly contracted muscle that does not relax.

    • ACL Sprains

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a ligament involved in knee stabilization. An ACL rupture can occur when the foot is planted and the knee twists to change direction.

    • Ankle Sprains

The ligaments that hold the ankle bones in place can easily be overstretched.

    • Shin Splints

The tissue that attaches the muscles of your lower leg to the shin bone may be pulling away from the bone, or it may be inflamed from overuse.

    • Athletic Trainers & Physical Therapy
    • Ice Bath (Only by Dr. Recommendation)
    • Nutrition
    • Physiatry & Chiropractic Sports Practitioner
