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
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.
