Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is a specialized branch of orthopedics. Not only does your dedicated sports medicine provider help you recover from an injury and any associated symptoms, but they also focus on helping you return to your sport or exercise activity with few (if any) limitations. 

Throughout your sports medicine care plan, your orthopedist helps you learn to cross-train, rebuild strength and flexibility, and even learn to prevent future sports injuries. 

When should I see a sports medicine specialist?

The sports medicine physicians at Able Orthopedic & Sports Medicine have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating all types of sports-related issues. It’s important to meet with a sports medicine specialist if you:

  • Notice bruising, swelling, or redness
  • Break a bone or have a stress fracture
  • Have a limited range of motion in a joint
  • Can’t bear weight on a leg, ankle, or foot
  • Suffer from an impact injury during sports
  • Are having difficulty grasping objects, like a ball
  • Twist your ankle or land incorrectly after jumping or running

Sports medicine specialists are also experts in wear-and-tear issues, such as Achilles tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, and rotator cuff injuries. These issues can lead to chronic pain and can even start affecting your performance. 

Since these sports injuries can progress if you don’t get started on treatment right away, the expert team at Able Orthopedic & Sports Medicine encourages you to come in for an evaluation, even if your discomfort seems minor or infrequent.
