When to See a Sports Medicine Provider

When an athlete sustains an injury during a sporting match, or any other sports-related injury, a doctor who specializes in sports medicine will most likely treat them. A physical therapist will then work with that athlete to ensure they recover safely and effectively in order to return to their regular practice and tournament schedule.

Injuries treated within the realm of sports medicine are generally acute or due to overuse and do not require surgery. Examples include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Knee and shoulder injuries
  • Fractures
  • Tendonitis
  • Injection therapies for osteoarthritis

Additional Benefits of Sports Medicine

Sports medicine involves so much more than treating and recovering from injuries. Additional goals include helping athletes:

  • Maximize performance
  • Cope with chronic illness
  • Understand nutritional education
  • Implement injury prevention

Call Desert Care Network to learn more about our services and to schedule a consultation. Whether you are suffering from a muscle strain or fracture, or you need help with implementing an injury prevention goal, our sports medicine team is here to help you achieve the most optimal outcomes.
