What Are Sports Injuries?

Sports InjuriesA sports injury refers to any type of injury that happens during exercise or sports, although most sports injuries involve the musculoskeletal system. Sports injuries usually fall into the following categories:

  • Too much force. These injuries happen when too much force is applied, exceeding the amount of force that a ligament or tendon can withstand without tearing.
  • Direct impact. This type of injury can be the result of a football tackle or a bad fall, for example, and directly cause a fracture or soft tissue injury.
  • Overuse. These repetitive stress injuries can include tennis elbow, for example, and they happen when overuse causes swelling, muscle strain, and pain.

How Do You Treat Sports Injuries in Los Angeles?

Dr. A. Michael Moheimani, leading orthopedic surgeon, believes in a personalized and comprehensive approach to medicine that begins with the least invasive and most effective treatment options first before considering surgery or costly procedures that may not be covered by your insurance.

A combination of non-surgical solutions can help speed the healing of most sports injuries. This may include physical therapy, heat/ice therapy, bracing, and rest. Steroid injections can be useful for some injuries to ease inflammation and pain. Surgery is only advised for serious injuries that do not respond to conservative care or cause extreme weakness, loss of range of motion, or pain.
