Sports Injury Help
Selecting a professional in a personal injury matter is a very important decision. As physicians who are specifically familiar with the management of accidental injuries, Centers For Neurology can treat your injuries and refer you to the best personal injury lawyers in Florida.
Pain and injuries have been close teammates from the very beginnings of athletic games. In fact, many aspects of “sports medicine” were founded in ancient times for the treatment of broken bones and chronic pain resulting from sports contests.
SHCC Centers for Neurology and Pain Management have served as treatment specialists and consultants for sports injuries to nearly every age group. Both male and female athletes are equally prone to pain and injury. SHCC Centers for Neurology and Pain Management are considered a “primary source” for evaluations and treatment by many local schools, colleges and universities.
As athletic activity and strenuous competition become more and more a part of modern life style, injuries keep pace. We have broadened our specialized services to meet these challenges and provide the exact professional skills required in treating areas of sports conditioning and physical therapy. After a history is compiled and a physical exam conducted, then treatment can begin with a carefully monitored recovery program.
Beginning with the earliest stages of team sports, participants suffer minor injuries, bruises and contusions. Serious damage to the body is fortunately rare at initial levels of competition but the basis for pain is soon established. As sports move into more strenuous and advanced phase’s injuries accumulate. When a “contact sport” such as football beckons then injury becomes a “team mate.” Pain from bruises and muscle strain is routine in all youthful games and sports contests.
Sports injuries have a cumulative effect on the body, too. They often involve repetitious stress and strain, “tennis elbow” for instance. Such pain becomes part of the sport. Treatment based on exact knowledge with long-term guidance is then the key to participation. And, that’s when visits to our team of specialists are regularly scheduled. Massage therapy by certified practitioners is often a key to proper care.
The list of strenuous sports is familiar to most of us and all seem to produce injuries to match the skills required. Football and basketball are noted for damage to knees, joints and upper-spine. And, although football teams have tried hard to protect participants with pads and helmets, serious injuries still occur and concussions are not uncommon. Without enumerating the specific injuries associated with every sport it’s apparent that such potentials are always present. Our doctors at the SHCC Neurology and Pain Management Centers have over 20 years experience in working with these injuries!
Whenever a sports injury occurs that involves the nervous system, specialized training and experience is critical. These injuries would include suspected damage to joints, the head, and the spine. Even soft tissue such as muscles and tendons are subject to serious injury in contact sports arid examination by a sports injury treatment specialist should be scheduled, The potentials for chronic pain are always present and only professional evaluation with planned treatment can enable the body to heal.
Nearly all health authorities, physicians, and physical therapists are in agreement that exercise is vital to our body’s well being. Yet, all must be alert to possible injuries when we exceed our personal levels of participation. As we age, this becomes more and more important. Consultation with one of our specialists can be invaluable in setting realistic goals and maintaining them. If a problem then arises our staff will treat the cause and not just the symptoms.
If you and your family are sports participants it’s critical that you familiarize yourself with SHCC Centers for Neurology and Pain Management on site services.
