Sports Injury Treatment – Considerations
There is a wide range of potential treatments for sports injuries. Natural healing may be possible with rest and activity modification. Braces may relieve pain and stabilize joints to prevent further damage. In severe cases, orthopaedic surgery may be necessary.
A number of factors contribute to the type of treatment doctors will recommend for your sports injury, such as:
- Overall health and medical history
- Severity of condition
- Location of injury
Our doctors will perform a thorough examination and consultation to determine the best course of treatment for your sports injury. They will help you understand the benefits and risks to any procedure and answer your questions.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Whether rest alone or more intensive treatments are called for, many sports injuries require a rehabilitation program to strengthen the joint before returning to your regular activities. Following your prescribed rehabilitation plan is essential to full recovery and preventing future injury.
