Sports Injuries Q & A

What are the most common sports injuries?

Athletic pursuits, by their very nature, are designed to push your body to, and sometimes past, its limits. Whether you’re a daily runner or you enjoy a pick-up game of basketball, your body needs to keep up with the rigors of your sport of choice, and when it fails to do so, you’re left on the couch nursing your sports injury.

The team at Neuro Pain Consultants offers innovative and specialized treatments for all sorts of spinal problems due to sports injuries, such as:

  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Partial misalignment (subluxation)
  • Disc compression (herniated disc)
  • Hematoma (accumulation of blood)
  • Cushing, bruising, tearing, or penetration of spinal cord tissue
  • Brain stem stroke
  • Partial or complete tearing of ligaments

In addition to your spine, the board-certified doctors at Neuro Pain Consultants also work with hand pain, rotator cuff injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

When should I see a doctor for a sports injury?

Sports injuries range from mild sprains to debilitating fractures. The bottom line is that you know your body best. If you’re in moderate to severe pain, it’s always a good idea to get checked out at Neuro Pain Consultants. Armed with the best diagnostic tools, including advanced imaging, the team of doctors can get you on the road to relief sooner rather than later.

If your pain is just dull and nagging, but doesn’t seem to go away after a few days of rest, you should also err on the side of caution and seek treatment.

If you’re in any doubt, call one of the clinics and speak to one of the medical experts.

How are sports injuries treated?

Treatment depends on the type, location, and severity of your injury. Your physician at Neuro Pain Consultants works diligently to get you up and moving again, as soon as is safely possible.

To that end, they have a number of tools in their treatment arsenal, including:

  • Bracing or splinting
  • Physical therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Holistic medicine
  • Regenerative medicine, including stem cell and PRP therapies

Your doctor starts out conservatively, but becomes more aggressive if your injury calls for intervention on a larger scale, such as surgery.
