Sports medicine physicians don’t just treat injured athletes, they help keep athletes healthy and avoid injuries all together. If you regularly take part in competitive athletic activities or are considering a new workout routine, consider the following:
- Get a preseason physical examination from a doctor.
- Create a conditioning program.
- Gradually increase your workout routine if you have had a period of inactivity.
- Hydrate adequately before, during, and after practice or games.
- Decrease or limit training time or sports participation if pain or discomfort develops.
Sports injuries cover a wide spectrum of injuries and involve every area of the body. In many cases, an injury will heal properly with rest, rehab and time. Avoid overly strenuous physical activities, apply ice to the painful area, and make sure you allow time to heal. For some sports related injuries, this will not be enough. If you are dealing with fractures, ligament tears, dislocations, or other serious conditions, you should consult with a sports medicine specialist so that appropriate treatment can begin immediately.
