Every athlete’s biggest fear is getting injured. Whether you are a professional, amateur, or just someone who likes to go to the gym, an injury can be a debilitating setback to everyday life. Unfortunately, injuries are a very common occurrence in sports; However, there are physicians who are specifically trained to help ease the process of recovery as well as prevent future injuries.
Sports medicine physicians are fellowship trained physicians who both treat and aid in the prevention of sports and exercise related injuries. Pain is not always an appropriate indicator of injury severity when it comes to sports injuries. It is strongly recommended to see a physician if there is any pain or swelling lingering for more than a week after a sports injury. It is important to treat sports related injuries early and correctly in order to prevent any future or additional problems that may have potential to occur.
