Sports Injuries

Don’t Sit on the Sidelines

Sports injuries occur for a variety of reasons. Acute injuries occur when contact or force is too much for your muscles, joints or bones to absorb. A twisted ankle, an awkward landing, a fall off your bicycle, or a collision at second base are examples of this type of injury. Overuse injuries, on the other hand, are a gradual breakdown of body structures, usually due to repetitive motion. Poor technique and structural abnormalities can also contribute to the development of overuse injuries.

 

Prevention

Reduce your risk.

You can reduce your risk of sports injuries by doing the following:

  • Do some pre-season conditioning for your sport or activity
  • Make training changes gradually
  • Always warm up thoroughly
  • Use good form and technique
  • Tape or strap vulnerable joints, if necessary
  • Use the appropriate safety equipment, such as mouth guards, helmets and pads
  • Cool down afterward with gentle, sustained stretches
 
 

Symptoms

Pinpoint your pain.

Pain is an indication that something is wrong; so, listen to your body. As your injury progresses, pain will increase and/or occur earlier during exercise. Symptoms vary, depending on the type and severity of the sports injury. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Stiffness
  • Bruising
 

Diagnosis

Get the answers you need.

To identify the type and severity of sports injury, the experts at Kayal Orthopaedic Center provide the following:

  • Thorough physical exam
  • Range-of-motion tests
  • X-rays
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Possible diagnostic arthroscopy

We take great pride in treating every patient with the care and compassion you deserve. Our team will take the time you need to ask questions and get answers. We consider you part of the team and will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is best for your unique condition and circumstances.

 
 

Treatment

Life’s too short to put up with pain.

Getting you back on the field or court safely and quickly, the progressive orthopaedic surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center are experts in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. There are numerous treatment options for sports injuries, depending upon the patient’s age, activity level, general health and injury type. Nonsurgical treatments include rest, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and steroid injections. If surgery is required, our surgeons may perform minimally invasive, arthroscopic procedures to limit postoperative pain and scar tissue buildup. Minimally invasive techniques have other advantages, including smaller incisions, shorter procedures, less blood loss, shorter (or no) hospital stay and speedier recoveries. We treat a variety of sports injuries, including but not limited to:
