What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is not in itself a medical specialty. Instead, it comprises a group of medical professionals who focus on the health of an athlete.

The physicians on the sports medicine team at Sovah Health are board-certified orthopedic surgeons who can treat different sports injuries, particularly in the knee, shoulder, hip, foot, ankle, elbow and hand.

They can also provide comprehensive care for people who work in physically demanding jobs like construction work, or for people who want to become active again and start an exercise program.

Most sports injuries can fall into one of two categories:

    • Acute injuries (such as sprained ankles, strained muscles, injured knees or shoulders, broken bones)
    • Overuse injuries (such as tendonitis or stress fractures).

Youth Sports Injuries

If your child suffers a serious injury during exercise or sports, your best action is to head to the Emergency Room at Sovah Health for immediate treatment. Signs of a serious injury include:

    • Severe pain
    • Puffiness or swelling
    • Numbness
    • An inability to put any weight on the injured area

Most sports injuries do not require surgery, but some injuries may require surgery to repair torn tendons, ligaments, muscles or broken bones.
