Sports and fitness are essential when it comes to maintaining a healthy life style. While contributing to better health and reducing the risk of illnesses, being active makes you vulnerable to many sports related injuries. Proper training and guidance is the key to avoiding many of these injuries. In order to avoid complications associated with these injuries, it is very crucial to consult a doctor promptly after an injury takes place. Some of the injuries associated with sports and exercise are also developed over time.

Sports medicine focuses on sports and exercise related injuries. Whether you are professional athlete, a weekend soccer player or just enjoy your regular gym workouts, these injuries can happen to anyone. Sports related injuries can result from accidents, poor training practices, improper equipment use, and lack of conditioning or insufficient warm up and stretching.

Some common sports related injuries include:

  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder, arm and hand injuries
  • Muscle swelling and injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations

While there are many reasons why an injury might occur, there are also several treatments to help fix these injuries, including Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS). At OSSMSA, we ensure that each patient has the proper treatment, guidance and support when it comes to dealing with such injuries. If you are experiencing any pain or decreased functionality in your sport of choice, call Dr. Whaley today for a thorough evaluation and customized treatment plan.
