Millions of Americans exercise and play sports everyday. Some of us like a stroll in the park. Others prefer a competitive softball game or the demands of a marathon. Naturally, injuries often occur with these activities. Sometimes, a runner hits a pothole, a weightlifter uses bad form or a basketball player stops and turns too quickly. No matter how an injury occurs rapid treatment always is the smart choice.
For athletes of all ages, Bon Secours Orthopaedic Institute is an excellent place to receive the care and advice you need when you need it. Our doctors are skilled and experienced in dealing with every sort of sports-related injury from sprains and strains to breaks and tears. We use state-of-the-art equipment and procedures for diagnosis, treatment and recovery. We understand, too, that women are more prone to certain athletic injuries, particularly in the shoulders and knees, than men. For example, female athletes are two to eight times more likely than men, depending on the sport, to suffer an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The NCAA estimates that 10 percent of all women athletes will hurt their ACL. Likewise, women are two to three times more likely than men to experience adhesive capsulitis, commonly known as “frozen shoulder.” We know exactly what to do in these cases and similar ones, and can advise patients how to avoid them in the future.
At our Orthopaedic Institute, physical therapy plays a special role in sports medicine. So, we make sure that, when needed, patients work with therapists to regain strength, stability and mobility.
When it comes to sports medicine, Bon Secours Orthopaedic Institute is a natural choice for injured athletes who want to get up on their feet and back in the game as quickly as possible.
