Sports Medicine Q & A

Express Family Clinic

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports medicine is a medical specialty that helps athletes of all levels and capabilities prevent and recover from injuries, enabling them to perform at optimal levels. Sports medicine treatments and procedures are used to prevent, diagnose, and treat injuries that may interfere with sports or other physical activities. Sports medicine specialists help athletes at all levels of participation, from casual weekend athletes to student and professional athletes. Whether an athlete wants to improve performance or needs assistance in regaining full strength, flexibility, and range of motion, he or she can seek advice and care from a sports medicine specialist.

What are Common Sports-Related Injuries?

The physical strains of athletic activities are tough on the body. Sports injuries are usually strains or sprains that typically occur from either direct impact, contact with a hard object, or an indirect impact such as unnatural twisting or bending. Injuries related to repetitive impacts from jumping, running, or swinging a racquet are also common. Some of the most common sports injuries affecting the feet and ankles include:

  • Bruising of deep tissues
  • Fractures, both simple and complex
  • Heel spurs, which are small, bony projections that form on the bottom of the foot that often develop from the repeated impact of running
  • Nerve injuries that can accompany direct and indirect impact-related injuries, causing pain, numbness, and other issues, and even affecting balance
  • Sprains, which are injuries that affect the ligaments and may include overstretching a ligament or complete or partial tears of a ligament
  • Strains, which involve injury to the tendons and muscles

How are Sports Injuries Treated?

Treatment for sports injuries depends on the condition. For example, sprains and strains are typically treated with an immobilizing device and advice to rest, elevate, and ice the injured body part. Doctors may suggest physical therapy to rebuild strength following an injury or to improve strength and flexibility to avoid injury in the first place. Patients can count on expert and customized care from the physicians at Express Family Clinic.
