Pushing your body to the limits as an athlete has its rewards. It can also come at a price. Injuries are common for those who play sports, whether you are on the company softball team or striving to become a professional athlete. Sports injuries can occur from head to toe. These injuries may include traumatic brain injuries and concussions, muscle strains and sprains in the foot. At Medici Spine & Pain, we offer the most advanced treatment options for recovery and rehabilitation from sports injuries.
Any sport can have injury risks. While impact sports, like football, may have higher risks of severe injuries, even leisure sports can put strain on the body. When muscles, ligaments and tendons are used repetitively to gain skill and strength, damage can occur. Tears, strains, sprains and other soft tissue damage are common in athletes, as are joint injuries. Some common sports injuries we treat at Medici Spine & Pain include:
- Golfer’s or tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff, shoulder impingement or shoulder bursitis
- Tunnel syndromes – carpal, cubital and radial
- Joint sprains and strains
- Muscle spasms and back pain
- Head injuries
- Pulled muscles
While minor sports injuries can heal with rest, ice and OTC medications, it is important to get treatment for injuries that cause ongoing pain or mobility issues. “Pushing through the pain” can be bad advice and cause more serious injuries in some cases.
