At Advanced Orthopedic Center, we understand that having a sports injury is both frustrating and inconvenient. If you play a competitive sport, the time you take off is just as critical as the time you put in on the field.
If you or your child sustain an injury while exercising, participating in sports, or any type of physical activity, you may require the services of a sports medicine doctor. At Advanced Orthopedic Center, many of our physicians have special training in sports medicine and can help restore full function in your affected areas, so you can get back to competing as quickly as possible.
Treating Sports Injuries in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, FL
Although the term “sports medicine” implies that it’s reserved for professional athletes, it also provides treatment for children and adolescents involved in sports, and adults who regularly exercise to maintain their personal fitness. Sports medicine can even cater to the needs of anyone who has a physically demanding job.
Contrary to popular belief, sports medicine is not a medical specialty. Most sports medicine doctors are certified in other fields such as internal medicine, family medicine, and orthopedics, but have received additional training to treat sports-related injuries. Most of our board-certified physicians are trained in orthopedics, allowing our patients to get the treatment they need for their fractures, sprains and strains, and more.
Sports Injury Conditions
At Advanced Orthopedic Center, our sports medicine doctors treat a wide variety of injuries including:
- Ankle sprains
- Knee and shoulder injuries (e.g. rotator cuff, ACL tear, meniscal tear)
- Tendonitis (e.g. tennis elbow)
- Cartilage injuries (knee, shoulder, hip)
When it comes to diagnosing and treating these conditions, our physicians take the time to address each patient individually. We understand that not every injury is the same, and that each patient experiences their injuries in a different way. That’s why we provide tailored diagnostic testing and treatment plans to each one of our patients.
Receiving diagnostic testing and treatment is made quick and convenient with the help of our on-site facilities. These facilities house MRIs, X-rays, and physical therapy and interventional pain management services to our patients. Because these facilities are exclusive to our patients, you won’t have to worry about the hassle of finding a lab or treatment center and waiting for these services. Instead, you can focus on getting treatment for yourself or your loved ones in no time.
