What is Sports Medicine?

Anyone with an active lifestyle can benefit from sports medicine, a field that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of sports-related injuries.

What are the 7 Most Common Sports Injuries?

Unfortunately, orthopedic sports injuries are quite common among athletes and anyone who participates in physical activity.

The following common sports-related injuries are routinely diagnosed and treated at Suburban Orthopaedics:

  • Sprains and strains – These injuries frequently involve the ligaments and muscles in the ankles, wrists, or knees
  • Fractures – Broken bones that can happen as a result of forceful blows or constant stress
  • Dislocations – Accidents when the ends of bones are pushed out of place, frequently affecting the shoulders or fingers
  • Tendonitis – Tennis elbow and Achilles tendinitis are two common cases of tendon inflammation or irritation, called tendonitis
  • ACL Tears – Injury to the knee’s anterior cruciate ligament, frequently brought on by twisting movements
  • Rotator cuff injuries – Tears or inflammation in the shoulder muscles and tendons
  • Concussions – Traumatic brain injuries frequently occur from head trauma

Understanding these frequent injuries and receiving immediate medical attention can greatly speed recovery and reduce issues down the road.
