About Sports Medicine

According to studies over 10% of youth sports participants will experience sports-related injuries during the season—that’s over 3 million young athletes a year. Most of these injuries occur during practices, not games. While contact sports result in the many injuries, non-contact sports can still cause injuries, even fractures, through overuse or misuse of limbs.

According to the National Library of Medicine, common sports injuries include sprains and strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, Achilles tendon injuries, fractures, rotator cuff injuries, and dislocations. In other words, when you have a sports injury, you’ll need a knowledgeable orthopaedic physician who can address all these injuries.
