Sports-related injuries require specialized care to promote optimum healing. Whether you are are a weekend jogger or tennis player, a professional soccer player or marathon runner, a child or senior citizen, a star quarterback or cheerleader, a dancer or a marching band member, trauma to the muscles and joints can limit or prevent your participation in these activities. While a large part of our sports medicine practice focuses on the management of musculoskeletal injuries, our doctors also evaluate and treat other medical conditions affecting the athlete, including acute illness and chronic medical conditions, such as hypertension, acute injuries, overuse injuries, heat illness, etc. We also oversee medications taken by athletes, perform pre-participation evaluations, ensure compliance with the respective governing bodies, and oversee nutritional and rehabilitation programs.
Arthroscopy, a microsurgical technique, is often employed to repair joints, while traditional reconstructive surgery is used for musculoskeletal damage. Other treatments include custom-made orthotics, braces, sports splints and personalized home rehabilitation programs.
At Middle Georgia Orthopaedics, our sports medicine doctors take a team approach in helping you return to your favorite sports and activities. Our sports medicine doctors are trained in the treatment and care of sports-related injuries and conditions, such as torn ligaments (ACL and MCL), torn cartilage (meniscus), joint instability, muscle weakness, sprains, and fractures.
