Do I Have a Sports Injury?
It may be difficult to tell how severe a sports injury is, so when in doubt, you or your child should seek medical care. Dislocations, fractures, and sprains can all include pain, swelling, discoloration, bruising, tingling, numbness, or difficulty moving, so a digital x-ray can help determine the extent of the injury before a treatment plan is created. A concussion caused by a blow to the head should be examined if the patient experiences headaches, loss of consciousness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, memory loss, or fatigue.
How Are Sports Injuries Treated?
After a sports injury, our experienced team will start by diagnosing your condition to determine the best treatment plan. This will include a description of the injury, how it happened, the severity of your pain, and any related symptoms. We will review your medical history, including past injuries and any known allergies to help quickly alleviate any pain or discomfort. If needed, an x-ray may be taken at our office for sprains, fractures, and dislocations or other diagnostic testing. Once your injury has been diagnosed, our team can offer many treatments like splints, slings, crutches, canes, and orthopedic boots. In some cases, our staff may refer you to a specialist, like an orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon, to provide further care.
