Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine focuses on treating injuries that happen during sports or physical activity. The team of orthopedic surgeons and physician assistants at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine have specialized training in issues that affect the musculoskeletal system.

They diagnose and treat a wide range of sports injuries suffered by recreational, amateur, and professional athletes. However, you don’t need to play a sport to suffer a sports injury.

People of all ages and fitness levels can develop one of these problems during a variety of physical activities like hiking, dancing, or just playing in their backyard.

The team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine treats patients of all ages, from toddlers to grandparents.

What problems does a sports medicine doctor treat?

The team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine treats the full range of sports injuries, including:

  • Joint dislocations and instability
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendinitis and tendon tears
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Fractures

Sports-related injuries can happen suddenly and cause severe, immediate pain. Other times, they develop gradually from overuse and repetitive motions. If you experience sudden, severe pain from a sports injury, don’t hesitate to walk into the McKinney clinic for same-day care.

What services does a sports medicine doctor provide?

The highly trained providers at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offer advanced care using leading-edge technology. They begin by reviewing your symptoms and medical history and performing a complete assessment of your physical condition. They can also do diagnostic imaging tests, like an X-ray.

After they accurately diagnose your condition, the team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine creates an individualized treatment plan. Depending on the type and severity of your injury, they’ll perform one or more of the following services:

  • Immobilization in a cast, splint, or brace
  • Physical therapy
  • Oral or injected medications
  • Regenerative medicine like stem cell injections

They’re also one of only a few practices in the area to perform cartilage restoration and preservation procedures. Cartilage is the slippery tissue that cushions the ends of your bones in a joint. Damage to the cartilage can increase your risk of developing long-term conditions like post-traumatic arthritis.
