Sports Injury Treatment
One of the best ways to remain healthy is to live a healthy lifestyle. Many people choose to play recreational sports to stay active and improve their fitness levels. Pushing their bodies to their highest limits can bring both reward and suffering. When you hit your high moment of peak performance, you feel great and accomplished. However, pushing your body to perform can also come with risks for injury.
Sports injuries are classified as injuries that occur during sports, athletic activities, or exercising. Whether you were pushing your body to the extreme or you made one wrong move, any type of sports injury can be painful and challenging to recover from. At Medici Medical Arts, we offer advanced treatment for sports injuries at our clinics in Metro Atlanta.
Almost any part of the body can be injured during sporting activities. Muscles, bones, joints, and connective tendons are often injured through physical activity, with the ankles and knees being particularly prone to injury. While prevention is the greatest way to protect your body from injury, if you have injured yourself and R-I-C-E (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) has not helped you recover, you will need to seek medical attention. Please note that it is incredibly important that you stop exercising if you feel pain whether an injury has suddenly occurred or you have been dealing with the pain for a while. Continuing to exercise while injured can cause further damage and make recovery much slower.
The physicians at Medici Medical Arts offer an accurate diagnosis to find the source of pain so that they can create an effective treatment plan for sports injuries. We specialize in the most effective, least invasive, and least drug-dependent services for relieving inflammation and pain. A thorough medical exam and review of your medical history by our Fellowship-Trained, Interventional Pain Management Physicians begins the process for every new patient. Our physicians work as a multi-disciplinary team to identify the source of your pain and to develop a treatment plan that utilizes integrative solutions. Medici Medial Arts also offers interventional medicine options that can increase healing and recovery for damaged soft tissues.
For those who love being active, an injury can put a huge damper on your life. Loss of physique and form, loss of strength, and loss of motivation can occur when an injury prevents you from enjoying the activities you love. If you have a sports injury that needs medical care, contact Medici Spine & Pain at one of our clinics in the Metro Atlanta Area.
