What Does a Sports Medicine Physician at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Carson City, NV, Treat?
When you see a sports medicine physician at our Carson City, Nevada clinic, you will be cared for by a doctor who specializes in the treatment of athletes (and other active people) and has an acute understanding of the way certain activities can stress and injure the body. Typically, a sports medicine physician will treat sports-related injuries, such as muscle strains, fractures, concussions, and other orthopedic conditions that can be caused by sudden impact or repetitive motions.
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic in Carson City, your sports injury physician will have specialized knowledge in the musculoskeletal system, and can help treat any of the following conditions:
- Muscle tear or strain
- ACL tear
- Runner’s knee (patellofemoral pain syndrome)
- Dislocations (knee, shoulder, etc.)
- Achilles tendon injury
- Broken bones
- Fractured or “jammed” joints
- Torn rotator cuff
- Tennis elbow
- Many more
Depending on the condition, a sports medicine physician typically will recommend a series of conservative treatments. These treatments can include physical therapy, behavioral modifications, and anti-inflammatory medication, among other nonsurgical treatment options.
While it may seem that a sports physician focuses only on active patients, they are not the only people going to see this type of specialist. Anyone who is active or wants to become active can find value in seeing a sports medicine physician because these medical professionals can create weight loss and exercise plans for people who need to shed some pounds and become more active. These plans are tailored to the patient’s specific lifestyle, medical history, and goals, and the doctor is available for consultations should the patient have any questions or concerns throughout the program.
