Diagnosis and Treatment for Sports Injuries

During a visit to our office, your doctor will learn about your medical history and perform an exam to determine the extent of the injury. Imaging tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, are often recommended to provide a detailed view of the injured body part. Your doctor will talk with you about at-home ways to care for your injury, including the RICE method, which stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Based on your specific situation, your doctor may provide you with an orthopedic brace, as well as prescribe medications, such as anti-inflammatory pain relievers. Additionally, physical therapy might be recommended to rehabilitate your injury and help you return to your previous activity level.
