Common Injuries

Injuries can happen during any sport or athletic activity. Some concerns are common across many types of recreation, such as bruises and fractures, while others are specific to the exercise. Regardless of the cause, we can diagnose your sports-related issue and develop a customized treatment plan designed to restore function and comfort as fully and as quickly as possible.

  • Ligament and Tendon Injuries. Ligaments connect bones to other bones and help them remain stable and move smoothly. Tendons connect bones to the surrounding muscles. Should one of these tissues become partially or fully torn (known as a rupture), significant debilitation and discomfort can occur. The ankles, knees, and shoulders typically will be the most susceptible to this type of injury; however, trauma or overuse of any ligament or tendon can cause inflammation and damage. We emphasize a conservative approach foremost, advancing to more aggressive treatment as required to optimize the healing process.
  • Fractures. A bone fracture (also known as a broken bone) typically occurs as a result of a forceful impact or stress. Essentially any bone in the body can experience this type of injury, depending on the circumstances. In most cases, non-surgical treatment can address this concern.
  • Dislocation. A dislocation occurs when a bone slides out of alignment with the surrounding structures, usually due to force. During high or low impact sports, the bones of the knees, shoulders, elbows, hips, or other joints could partially or completely dislocate as a result of trauma or a fall. Our experienced medical team can help return the bone to proper alignment, minimize discomfort, and restore mobility.
