Sports Injuries Q&A
What are the most common sports injuries?
Many sports injuries are accidental and unavoidable. You’re running too fast and suddenly stop or pivot. Or maybe you couldn’t avoid a collision with another player on the field.
However, your risk of a sports injury significantly increases when you don’t have the appropriate training, your muscles are fatigued from overtraining, or you don’t wear the proper gear.
The team at Quince Orchard Medical Center has extensive training and experience in helping patients recover from many types of sports injuries. Some of the most common they treat include:
- Knee injuries
- Meniscal tears
- Labral tears
- Tennis or golfer’s elbow
- Runner’s knee
- Rotator cuff tears
- Tendon injuries
Even if your injury seems minor, it’s important to let your provider at Quince Orchard Medical Center evaluate the problem and determine if you need treatment.
Delaying treatment and continuing to use the affected muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons only increase your risk of making the damage worse.
What symptoms develop due to a sports injury?
Injuries to your musculoskeletal system generally cause symptoms such as:
- Joint instability
- Limited movement
- Muscle weakness
- Tingling or numbness
- Inability to use the affected limb
If you have any questions about your symptoms or you have swelling, instability, or can’t use the limb, schedule an appointment to see the skilled sports medicine specialists at Quince Orchard Medical Center.
What types of treatments might I receive for a sports injury?
At Quince Orchard Medical Center, you receive integrative care from a team of board-certified physicians and licensed professionals. They begin by reviewing your medical history and symptoms, performing a comprehensive examination, and ordering diagnostic imaging if needed.
As soon as they diagnose the underlying problem, they develop a customized treatment plan that draws from one or more of the following:
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy
- Physical therapy
- Joint pain injections
- Sport-specific rehabilitation
After the pain and swelling decrease, sports injuries often require intensive physical therapy and rehabilitation, especially if you plan to return to competitive sports.
You can count on Quince Orchard Medical Center for personalized attention and a customized rehabilitation plan that promotes the fastest possible recovery.
