Athletes push their body to the limit both off and on the field, through rigorous training and competition. This can be extremely taxing on the musculoskeletal system, potentially resulting in pain, strain, and injury. When this occurs, the athlete is in need of a professional with specialized training and experience diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating sports related injury. The providers at Sideline Orthopedics have the experience to know when to hold an athlete back and when to push them to work harder.
Sports medicine specialists have extensive training in the non-operative prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal illness and injury. An orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine is also educated in the non-operative prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal illness and injury, with the added expertise of operative management of those conditions when conservative treatment fails. An orthopedic sports medicine specialist is a comprehensive provider for sports related concerns, from diagnosing to treating to rehabilitation of illness and injury.
So what should you do if you experience sports-related strain or injury? Many conditions can be treated with rest and conservative measures. By seeking the advice of an orthopaedic surgeon with experience in sports medicine early, you can get the care you need to get back onto the field quickly.
