Orthopedic Care for Athletes
Orthopedic care for the athlete means more than care for professional and student athletes. It means care for everyone who participates in recreational activities and uses exercise as a way to stay healthy.
Orthopedic services in the Sports Medicine Center include:
- Evaluation, prevention, and treatment for sports-related injuries
- Surgical treatment for the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle, foot, wrist and hand
- Arthroscopic and minimally-invasive surgery
- Platelet rich plasma treatments
- Cartilage transplants and cartilage restoration
- Custom orthotics
- Splinting and casting
- Assessment and treatment by bone health specialist
Athletes may experience both acute and chronic injuries. Sports injuries can limit the athlete’s involvement in future athletic activity and often impact a person’s daily activities as well.
Acute injuries often result from a sport-related trauma and include sprains, tears, cartilage injuries, fractures or tendon ruptures. These trauma-type injuries are most typical in sports like football, basketball, soccer and skiing.
Chronic injuries are those that result from overuse due to repetitive athletic activity. Chronic injuries may include stress fractures, bursitis, tendonitis and arthritis. These repetitive-use injuries are often seen in sports like swimming, golf, running and tennis.
Strong on Bone Health
As we age, our bones become fragile and are more likely to fracture. Aurora BayCare has the ability to prevent, assess and treat bone health issues with our own bone health specialist available onsite.
