Expert Treatment for Sports Injuries
The goals of our sports injury treatment plans will always be to help you recover as quickly and effectively as possible – without the risk of further damage – and educating you about preventative care.
We understand how our patients feel about wanting to maintain active lifestyles. However, trying to push through a sports injury without proper rest and treatment is only going to significantly increase the chances that the problem will continue and become worse over time.
So, yes, rest may be strongly recommended. But that doesn’t mean you have to be fully out of commission. As part of your treatment plan, we can help you organize a lower-impact exercise regimen that keeps you moving while on your road to recovery.
We will take the time to fully evaluate your condition, we offer in-house digital x-rays to help quickly see the full extent of your injury, and discuss with you the factors that may have contributed to it. Once we have a firm understanding of your unique situation, we can recommend a plan focused on sound recovery and preventing future injuries.
Parts of a plan might include, but not be limited to:
- Recommended changes to activity levels or approaches to activities.
- Switching to more appropriate footwear.
- The use of custom orthotics to redistribute excess forces away from vulnerable areas.
- Regenerative therapies to accelerate recovery.
- Stretches or exercises to directly condition and strengthen vulnerable areas.
In rare situations, surgery might be necessary to repair or provide relief from a condition that does not respond to more conservative treatments.
