When to See a Sports Medicine Specialist?

Sports injuries can happen while engaging in a sport or exercise. Acute traumatic injuries occur after a forceful blow, resulting in strains, cuts, sprains, fractures or concussions. Overuse or chronic injuries happen from repeatedly moving the joints in the same physical motions.

The pain and swelling associated with minor sports injuries can usually be relieved by using the RICE method even at home, which stands for rest, ice application, compression and elevation. However, for medium to severe injuries, see an orthopedic or sports medicine doctor, especially if you experience these symptoms:

  • A popping or crunching sound in the joint 
  • Having visible deformities, bumps or lumps 
  • Instability 
  • Not being able to stand, walk or function 
  • Severe pain and swelling 
  • Inability to put weight on the joint or weak area

Our Specialties

We strive to get to the root cause of what’s causing a patient’s joint or bone problems. Our patients undergo consultations, physical examinations and other more advanced imaging exams if needed so we can further understand their condition. As much as possible, we will treat sports injuries with non-invasive options such as medications and physical therapy. 

If symptoms persist and there is no improvement, we may recommend a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Some of the most common sports injuries we treat are: 

  • Dislocation
  • Fracture
  • Knee injuries
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Swollen muscles
  • Tendon rupture
