Sports Medicine Is Not Just for Athletes

A sports medicine doctor is a medical specialist who focuses on injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system, a vast and complex network of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments that work together to support the body’s weight and facilitate movement. As you might imagine, musculoskeletal injuries can affect just about anyone, regardless of their physical fitness or activity level.

Certain musculoskeletal injuries are more common in some sports than others, but those most frequently treated by sports medicine doctors include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Bone fractures
  • Joint dislocations
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Knee cartilage injuries
  • Shoulder instability
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis

Any form of physical activity carries a risk of injury. If you play sports, you can reduce your risk by warming up, drinking plenty of water, using proper form and equipment, getting sufficient rest, and consulting with a sports medicine doctor.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
