Injuries Sports Medicine treats

Whether you're a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, there is always a chance for injury. Fortunately, we treat sports-related injuries of all shapes and sizes, such as:

  • Concussions: Common in high-impact and high-speed sports, all concussions should be evaluated by a healthcare provider.
  • Dislocations: A dislocation is a joint injury that occurs when a bone is pushed or pulled out of position. Dislocations are most common in the shoulder, knee cap, elbow and finger.
  • Fractures: A fracture is another name for a broken bone. Very small, fine breaks in a bone are known as stress fractures.
  • Knee injuries: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of four knee ligaments that stabilize the knee. Torn ACLs are one of the most common knee injuries.
  • Knee pain: Knee pain—with or without injury—may be ongoing or reoccurring. It is very common and often easily treated. 
  • Overuse injuries: Many sports-related injuries are due to overuse of the muscles and/or joints, and can lead to arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis.
  • Shoulder pain: Most shoulder problems fall into four categories: tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear, instability, arthritis and fracture (broken bone). Shoulder pain is common and can occur without injury. 
  • Sprains and strains: Sprains are injuries to the ligaments holding two joints together, while strains are injuries to muscles and tendons.
  • Throwing injuries: Repetitive overhead throwing can cause damage, inflammation and pain in the elbow or shoulder area.
