Specialized Treatment Options For Sports-Related Injuries
Most sports injuries, concussions and common fractures can be managed by our primary care sports medicine team, including specialized care following your injury so you can return to play or normal activities as quickly and safely as possible.
Our team is trained to get you back in the game as quickly and safely as possible from injuries such as:
- Fracture or sprain
- Broken bone
- Muscle tear
- ACL and MCL tears
Depending on your level of injury, we will work with you to design a treatment plan to fit your needs. Treatment may include:
- Concussion Management. PinnacleHealth Sports Medicine Center uses a comprehensive approach to concussion management. The use of neurocognitive testing, comprehensive physician evaluation and input from all medical providers involved in the care of the concussed patient are factored in when determining the plan of care and return to activity. The safety of the patient/athlete is the priority when dealing with concussions. We are a Credentialed ImPACT Consultant (CIC) and our staff has undergone specialized ImPACT training to offer state-of-the-art concussion care management to our patients. CICs are part of ImPACT’s national network of hundreds of healthcare providers who are leaders in clinical concussion care within their communities.
- Medications. There are a number of medications (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen or muscle relaxers) that can be prescribed on their own or in combination with each other to treat inflammation and pain.
- Physical therapy. Coping with a sports injury often requires physical rehabilitation. The right physical therapy helps you rebuild strength and movement in your joints and muscles. It will also help you manage pain and prevent permanent damage and recurring problems.
- Pain management. Our Interventional Pain Management team and Rehab Options Clinic offer treatments for both acute and chronic issues.Depending on your specific situation, treatments may include medications, epidural steroids, and trigger point or cortisone injections.
- Surgery. Whether you require ligament, tendon or joint repair, our orthopedic surgeons use the most advanced technology to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. (Link to Orthopedics)
