Sports medicine is the branch of medicine that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries related to participation in sports and/or exercise, specifically the rotation or deformation of joints or muscles caused by engaging in such physical activities. Our expertly trained sports medicine specialists are dedicated to provide you with the highest quality of care through both surgical and nonsurgical means.
Common Sports Injuries:
- Muscle Cramp - 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 Sprain - 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 Sprain - The ligaments that hold the ankle bones in place can easily be stretched out.
- 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.
