Sports Medicine Q&A

Why should I see a sports medicine doctor?

Sports medicine is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on treating joint injuries sustained while training or playing sports or fitness pursuits. 

The primary goal of sports medicine is to help you get back into action as soon as possible while ensuring your body has what it needs to heal. You should see a sports medicine specialist if you have:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Sprains, strains, or fractures
  • Chronic tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Groin or hamstring pulls
  • Lower back pain

While some sports injuries occur due to sudden trauma, others stem from overuse. Stress fractures, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries are all examples of sports injuries that can occur from overuse.

Sports medicine can also give you the tools and guidance needed to increase performance and prevent injury. That’s a big part of why so many college and professional teams have orthopedic specialists on their staff.

How are sports injuries treated?

The physical medicine specialists at Superior Physical Medicine are highly skilled in providing the latest and most advanced treatment solutions for sports-related injuries. 

Your sports injury treatment plan may incorporate various types of therapies, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Casting, bracing, or splinting
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Icing or heating therapies

If these conservative therapies aren’t working for you, or if you have a severe sports injury, your provider may suggest surgery to remedy your ailment. 

Can I return to sports after an injury?

In most cases, yes. Sports injuries just take some time to heal. It’s important to stick to your personalized sports injury treatment plan so you can fully recover and get back in the game.

Depending on your injury, it can take at least two to four weeks for you to be able to start performing certain exercises. If you needed surgery for your sports injury, your recovery time could be up to six to twelve weeks (or more).

The team at Superior Physical Medicine works with you to ensure you’re healing properly and getting stronger day by day. Their goal is to help you get back to your sport or exercise regimen without any limitations.
