Sports medicine is a field of health care dedicated to diagnosing and treating injuries that are common in athletes and other physically active people.
As healthy as it is to stay in shape with physical activity, playing sports increases your risk for musculoskeletal injuries even if you warm up properly, use safety equipment, and do everything else by the book.
The experts at ReGen Pain Management use advanced diagnostic imaging tests like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scans, and X-rays to evaluate injuries and plan treatment accordingly.
With the proper care and physical therapy, many injuries fully heal, and you can continue to play sports as before.
Which injuries does sports medicine commonly address?
ReGen Pain Management evaluates and treats acute and chronic sports injuries. Acute injuries happen very suddenly, often from improper movements or lack of safety equipment. Chronic injuries develop over time because of the overuse of specific body parts.
You might visit ReGen Pain Management to receive treatment for:
- Cartilage injuries
Sports injuries often occur at joints or in your back or neck. If you experience knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, or back pain, be sure to contact ReGen Pain Management to find out if a sports injury is the underlying cause.
How are injuries treated in sports medicine?
ReGen Pain Management provides personalized and professional care to help your sports injury heal quickly and properly. They also aim to restore function to the injured body part so you can resume physical activity eventually.
Many sports injuries heal up without surgery: Only noninvasive treatments, minimally invasive treatments, and lifestyle modifications are necessary. Depending on the type of injury you have and its severity, you might benefit from:
- Heat and ice therapy
- Physical therapy
- Joint injections
- Oral medications
- Trigger point injections
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
In some cases, surgery for a sports injury is unavoidable. Your provider at ReGen Pain Management ensures you receive the best possible care for your injury, whether you need surgery or not.
