Sports Injuries Q & A

What are common sports injuries?

Regular exercise is important for good health but can lead to injuries. Some of the most common sports injuries include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Muscle injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Labral tears
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Knee injuries

Strains and sprains are the most common sports injury, which may occur from overstretching or overuse. While you may be committed to your sport or team, warming up and taking breaks are as important for your performance and health as your regular practice and workouts.

When should I seek medical care for my sports injury?

If you’ve suffered an injury, whether from your weekly step class or after a poorly landed lay-up, you should schedule an appointment with the sports injury specialists at Arlington Pain & Therapy. Your specialist conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your injury and creates a treatment plan that helps you recover quickly and get back to your active lifestyle.

How are sports injuries treated?

Treatment for your sports injury at Arlington Pain & Therapy is individualized and based on your specific injury, symptoms, medical history, and recovery goals. Arlington Pain & Therapy offers cutting-edge treatment to help you recover quickly.

Your treatment may include:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Physical therapy

The full-service pain management team also offers interventional pain treatment to provide long-term pain relief, as well as regenerative medicine to accelerate your body’s natural healing process. Many athletes use regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), to help heal an injury and prevent the need for more invasive treatments, such as surgery.

When recovering from your sports injury, it’s important that you adhere to the activity limits set-forth by your specialist at Arlington Pain & Therapy. While you may be anxious to get back to your team, pushing yourself too soon may make your injury worse and prolong your recovery.

Your specialist has you work closely with the physical therapists at Arlington Pain & Therapy to help you improve strength and flexibility throughout your recovery so that when you’re ready, you’ll be an asset to your team.

Sports injuries are serious and require prompt and regular medical care so you can recover safely and quickly. For expert care of your sports injury, call Arlington Pain & Therapy today.
