    Understanding Sports Injuries

     
    Sports injuries often occur in the ankle, knee, elbow, and shoulder, and fall into two basic categories: overuse injuries, caused by a series of small injuries to the same area of the body; and acute injuries, caused by sudden trauma. Sports injuries can range from upper extremity injuries such as shoulder separation or dislocation, rotator cuff tears and elbow tendonitis (tennis elbow), to lower extremity injuries such as a torn ACL, damaged cartilage, or a torn achilles tendon. Prompt treatment can often prevent a minor injury from becoming worse or causing permanent damage.

    I
    njuries such as strains or sprains can usually be treated with rest, medication, and physical therapy. For injuries that require surgery, our orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive methods such as arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage, resulting in less trauma and a quicker recovery time for you. Most arthroscopic surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis.
