What Are Treatments for Sports Injuries?

At our urgent care center, we pride ourselves on being equipped to address a wide range of sports-related injuries. ClearChoiceMD is a state-of-the-art medical facility that provides accessible healthcare services on a walk-in basis.

When you come to ClearChoiceMD, our providers will thoroughly assess your injury. Sports injury treatment involves the following

  • Examination
    During the examination process, it is important to discuss the circumstances of the injury, including the specific sport you were participating in, any equipment used, and any environmental factors that may have contributed to the injury.
  • Taking Your Medical History
    Taking your medical history will involve asking questions about any previous injuries you may have experienced and any illnesses or medications that could impact your treatment plan.
  • Medical Imaging
    At our urgent care center, we have state-of-the-art medical imaging capabilities on-site. Whether you need an X-ray or other imaging test, we can quickly perform the necessary procedures to gain a comprehensive understanding of your injury. This evaluation allows us to develop the most effective treatment plan for you.
  • Design a Treatment Plan
    Fortunately, treatment plans typically only involve RICE (rest, ice, compression, and elevation). Immobilization, physical therapy, and medication might be appropriate in some circumstances. If the injury requires surgical intervention or specialist treatment, our providers will refer you to the appropriate provider.

Sports Sprained Knee Symptoms

A sprained knee can occur in various sports, particularly during contact or impact activities like football. However, runners and skiers often experience knee sprains because the extreme lateral motion required can put pressure on ligaments.

Sprains occur when one of the ligaments in the knee is stretched or torn, causing pain and swelling. Symptoms of a sports-sprained knee might involve the following

  • Swelling around the knee joint.
  • Pain during movement.
  • Bruising on the front of the knee and surrounding area.

Recovery might involve orthotics or braces to support the knee joint and maintain stability during activities.

It is important to follow a progressive return to activity plan under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure a safe return to sports and prevent further injuries.

The above symptoms might not apply to all sports sprained knee injuries. Consulting a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan is essential.

Sports Sprained Wrist Symptoms

Gymnasts, baseball players, and football players experience sprained wrists frequently. Sprained wrists are common injuries in these sports due to subjecting the wrist's joints to significant pressure from falling or sustaining heavy impacts.

Symptoms include the following

  • Swelling
  • Dull ache or sharp pain
  • Stiffness
  • Bruising

Sports Sprained Ankle Symptoms

A sprained ankle is a common injury that can occur in sports or recreational activities. According to a World Journal of Orthopedics study, ankle injuries are most commonly experienced by basketball, U.S. football, and soccer players.

Symptoms of a sprain may include the following

  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Bruises
  • Instability
  • Stiffness

The severity of the symptoms and the duration of recovery can vary depending on the extent of the sprain and the individual's overall health and fitness level.
