An overview of sports injuries
A sports injury can affect men and women of all ages and athletic levels. It can be minor or severe, and it can develop due to an accident that was completely beyond your control – or improper training, techniques and equipment. But regardless of the specifics, an injury can have a debilitating impact on your quality of life. It can keep you on the sidelines for weeks or months on end – and that’s simply not acceptable for most of the athletes we treat.
At the Orthohealing Center, we are dedicated to getting athletes back in the game as quickly as possible – and we have the experience and expertise necessary to get the job done. With that said, here are a few of the most common sports injuries we treat for our patients in Los Angeles and around the world:
Knee injuries are by far the most common problems we treat at the Orthohealing Center. From mild injuries like tendonitis and iliotibial syndrome, to more serious ones like an ACL or Meniscus tear, our knee specialists have seen and successfully treated it all.
Strains and sprains
Every athlete experiences a strain or sprain at one point or another. A sprain occurs when a ligament tears or overstretches, while a strain develops due to damage that’s sustained by your muscles or tendons. Whether your injury is minor or severe, you can rest assured that our sports doctors will treat the issue and get you back on your feet as quickly as possible. With our non-surgical philosophy, we explore all reasonable options to keep you active in sport.
If your sport requires repetitive overhead movements – such as swimming, tennis and baseball – your shoulder is at risk. At the Orthohealing Center, our shoulder specialists are fully qualified to diagnose, treat and prevent shoulder injuries for athletes of all levels, so our patients in Los Angeles and surrounding areas can stay in the game.
Tennis elbow and golfers elbow are extremely common overuse sports injuries. They cause pain around the elbow joint and are generally seen in athletes who participate in sports that require repetitive wrist extension and twisting, such as tennis, golf and baseball. Fortunately, our Beverly Hills sports doctors are highly skilled in treating these conditions, so you can continue performing at your optimal level.
An innovative approach to sports medicine
At the Orthohealing Center, we believe in the power of regenerative medicine when treating sports injuries. By leveraging your body’s own stem cells and regenerative properties, these minimally-invasive treatments frequently repair chronically damaged tissue from the inside out without the pain and lengthy recovery and rehabilitation period associated with surgery. In this way, our Los Angeles physiatrists deliver what our athletes want most. We heal their injuries, restore their optimal performance and get them back in the game.
